Linda Kaiser, of Northborough
Born in Marlborough to Helen (Boudreau) and Russell L. Jusseaume, Linda grew-up on Paris Street and enjoyed a very close and loving relationship with her parents and siblings, Gary Jusseaume of Marlborough, Janice Petkauskas of W. Yarmouth, and Kevin Jusseaume of W. Boylston. Family was important to Linda and she valued all her family members through good times and challenges.
After graduating from Marlborough High School in 1972, Linda worked as a waitress and also became a certified dental assistant, working for many years at local dental practices. Linda took a break from the dental field to run an in-home daycare for several years. Known for keeping her own home immaculate even with two dogs, Linda decided to open a cleaning service, which she ran until her illness. She truly enjoyed the relationships she built with patients and clients over the years.
Linda was a beautiful woman with an energetic personality, strong work ethic and bright smile. She was not timid in expressing her feelings to others or pursuing her goals. Her strong will and determination allowed her to fight a remarkable battle against her disease while being an inspiration to many. Linda will be dearly missed and certainly never forgotten by the many lives she touched.
In addition to her husband, parents and siblings, Linda is survived by step-son Jeff Kaiser of Westborough, uncles Paul (and Jean) Boudreau of Daytona Beach, Fla., Bob (and Mal) Jusseaume of Marlborough, aunt June Groleau of Oxford, brother-in-law Victor Petkauskas of Cape Cod, sister-in-law Lancie Jusseaume of W. Boylston, niece and nephews Lauren (Petkauskas) Houle, Brandon Petkauskas, Peter Jusseaume, Chad Jusseaume, Eric Jusseaume, as wells as many cousins.
Linda’s husband would like to thank the many people who provided comfort and encouragement to him and Linda during her illness. Special thanks to Dr. Kathryn Edmiston, nurses and staff of the Cancer Pavilion at Marlborough Hospital, Deb Swenson and past in-home aides Melva, Anne, and Mary, and hospice nurse Carlee Davis and staff at Ascend Hospice and Homecare for their dedicated and compassionate care.
