Obituary for Linda Lee Whittaker

Linda Lee (Akers) Whittaker passed away peacefully on January 19, 2016 at the age of 69.
Linda was born in Pontiac, Michigan on February 18, 1946 and attended Waterford High School. She met her sweetheart while they both worked at the Huron Theater in Waterford. On February 7, 1964, she married her sweetheart, Wayne Thomas Whittaker, and became his devoted wife. She loved her husband deeply and every year her husband brought roses to her on their anniversary with one rose to celebrate each anniversary. She was a loving Mother to two children, Michelle Ann (Whittaker) McCracken and Michael Wayne Whittaker.
She was an exceptional cook, loved flowers, waterskiing and watching the deer, birds and squirrels in her front yard. Linda had an extremely pure and loving heart, always saw the good in others and loved spending time with her family and friends.

Linda is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Wayne Thomas Whittaker,; her daughter, Michelle Ann (Whittaker) McCracken and husband Robert McCracken of Chelsea, Michigan; her son Michael Wayne Whittaker and wife Kimberly of Altamonte Springs, Florida; Brother Charles Akers of Bonita Springs, Florida; Sister Mary Alice (Akers) Mitchell of Clarksville, Georgia; grandchildren, Tony McCracken, Kelly McCracken and Jordan Lange; her two precious dogs, Katie and Ollie and numerous adoring nieces, nephews and friends.

She was preceded in death by her Mother, Viola Akers; Father, Roy Akers, and Brother-in-law, Paul Mitchell.

The visitation will be held on Friday from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors Capstick Chapel in Lapeer. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, January 23rd, at 11:00 a.m. at Lynch & Sons. On her behalf, we ask that any donations be made to St. Jude’s Hospital.
