Linda was born in Providence, R.I. in May 1953. She was the second of eight children of George Herbert Lowe and Claire Stromberg Lowe. Her siblings were Thomas, Carlene, Mary, Christine, Robert, Susan, and Karen.
In addition to Raoul P. Sevier, her husband of 26 years, she is survived by her son, Nathan C. Sevier of Austin, Texas, and her daughter, Amanda R. Sevier of Boylston. She is also mourned by her mother, siblings, aunts and uncles, cousins, devoted friends, and many others. She loved them all, and knew that they loved her.
Linda was known for her dedication to her family and her love of cooking. She was also known for her ability to form deep friendships, her caring respect for her customers, and kindness to all she met.
After high school in Providence, Linda moved to the California bay area, where she learned many aspects of manufacturing in Silicon Valley companies during the hardware era in the 1970s. She then applied this understanding to manufacturing software during the early software era of Silicon Valley in the 1980s. Through implementations, consulting, and training, she traveled throughout this country and Europe.
Linda moved to Massachusetts and founded Pagetender Web Services. Through Pagetender, she rode the wave of the Internet era from the 1990s, providing Internet marketing, web sites, and hosting services to customers in New England, and beyond. Her understanding of the technologies, ability to communicate, and engaging style proved valuable to many companies, and made her many friends.
Linda and her husband moved to the East Coast to raise their family close to her mother and siblings. During this time, her affiliation to the Lutheran Church deepened, engaging her in choir and Sunday School teaching activities. She was also heavily involved in the Corridor Nine Area Chamber of Commerce in MetroWest Massachusetts, including positions on the board of directors. Beyond these activities, extended family events and affairs were her highest priority.
A memorial service will be held at Bethel Lutheran Church, 90 Bryn Mawr Ave., Auburn, on a date to be announced soon.

Winter came too soon; life was fulfilled regardless with love and kindness.
