Linda J. Thrall, 73, of Westbrook, formerly of Windsor, passed away on April 4, 2017 while residing at Harrington Court in Colchester. She was born in Hartford on June 23, 1943 and was a daughter of the late Marden Prentiss and Ruth (Bennett) Prentiss. Linda attended Hartford schools and went into the medical field becoming a Licensed Phlebotomist and Licensed Practical Nurse. She worked for Dr. Poirier in Windsor for many years and later at Diagnostic Labs in Branford. Linda resided in Windsor and Suffield for many years before moving to Westbrook in 1984. After retiring in 1997, Linda enjoyed her life in Westbrook boating, knitting, and spending time with her children. Her declining health required her to move to Essex Village in 2007 and finally to Colchester in 2016. Linda had a big heart and loved her family dearly, especially her only granddaughter Alyssa, and was a doting "Mommy" to her two dogs, Bridget and Bonnie. Her smile and warmth will be missed and her family will continue to cherish her memory. She leaves her daughter, Carrie L. Sweet and her husband Gary of East Hampton; a son, Jeffrey Thrall of Killingworth and his father, Timothy Thrall of Killingworth; a granddaughter, Alyssa Sweet; two step-daughters, Jennifer Thrall and Amy Thrall; and a niece and nephew. She also leaves her daughter's dear friend, who Linda considered a second daughter, Tracey Rooslund of Cromwell. Linda was predeceased by her brother, Frederick Prentiss and a step-daughter, Linnea Damanche. A memorial service will be held on Friday, April 14, 2017 at 4 p.m. in the chapel of Carmon Funeral Home, 807 Bloomfield Ave., Windsor. Burial will be privately held.
