Linda B. (Prince)
Linda B. (Prince) Powers, a longtime resident of Malden, passed
away suddenly on Tuesday, December 20, 2016, at the age of 74.
Linda was born in 1942, the only daughter of William and Ethel
Prince. She was raised in Everett and graduated from Everett
High School with the Class of 1959. She then attended Boston
State College where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in
Education. She began working as a kindergarten teacher at
different schools including the Horace Mann School in Everett.
She worked as a teacher until 1980, when she retired from that
vocation and began working at Jordan Marsh in Malden, as a
customer service representative in their baking department. She
continued with the company after the merger with Macy’s, and
fully retired in 2014.
In 1966, she married the love of her life, Roger E. Powers, in
the Glendale Methodist Church in Everett. The two then settled
down in Malden to raise their family. She became a dedicated
member of St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Malden and St. John’s
Episcopal Church in Saugus. She loved her Church and took an
active role, singing with the Choir and serving on the Women’s
Guild within the Church. In her spare time she had a passion for
playing bingo, and as many know, she adored her cats.
She is survived by her children, Dawn Milam of Malden and Mark
Powers and wife Candice of Everett, and her grandchildren,
Sarah, Hailey, Joshua, and Makenzie.
