Linda Marie Kress


Linda M. Kress, 75, of Toledo, OH, passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 22, 2022 in Hampstead, NC with her loving family by her side.

Linda was born December 21, 1946 and she attended Flower Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1967.

Linda was a woman of great character and strength, with a strong work ethic and an independent spirit. She was pragmatic, sharp witted, and exceedingly intelligent. All of these attributes provided her a successful 45 year nursing career that began at the pediatric bedside. Linda quickly advanced into leadership, managing multiple specialties and projects throughout her dynamic career. She retired from her role as the Administrative Nursing Director of Patient Care approximately 10 years ago.

Linda was the proud, loving, dedicated mother of 3 children. She enjoyed family, travel and especially enjoyed time spent with her grandchildren.

Linda was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Donald ; brother, Jim Kerins; parents, James and Marjorie Kerins; and daughter in law Kristy Kress.

Linda is survived and will be lovingly remembered by her children, Chad (Colette) Kress, Jenean (Mark) LaCorte, and Lexy (Robert) Batey; grandchildren Caleb, Isabella, Mark, Brad, Hunter, Grayden, Ava, Miles, and Lucy.

A Celebration of Life for friends and family will be held privately, date and time yet to be determined.
