Linda Odom was born on November 14, 1940 in Sellersville, PA to Blanche and Howard Landis. She grew up alongside her siblings: James, Kathleen, and Howard. She married Raymond Swavely at 17 years old. They were blessed with four children, Jill, Joann, James and Jonathan. Raising four children is never easy, however she loved them all dearly and worked hard to give them the best she could offer. After her children had grown, she went to school to become a nurse. She was driven to create an identity apart from being a mother. She wanted to gain a bit of independence, while having the opportunity to help others. Eventually, Linda and Raymond divorced. She re-married Samuel Odom and became a step-mother to Sam’s children. Sam and Linda were excited to enjoy this new chapter in life together. They loved watching after their grandchildren, going to car shows, and spending time watching Wheel of Fortune with their pets. Linda and Sam created an incredibly supportive community at Grundy House. Linda loved meeting with her friends in the common area, tending to her garden, and attending community events. She loved sewing and baking, often creating handmade gifts for her friends and family. Spending time with her dog, Levi is what she enjoyed the very most. After Sam passed away, Levi offered her much support. He truly was her best friend and was happy to tag along on her many adventures and errands. Linda will be missed greatly by her loyal pup and her entire family. Linda Odom peacefully passed away on the morning of June 26, 2021. Linda is survived by her dog, Levi; her children, Jill, Joann, and Jonathan; Her siblings, Kathleen and James; her grandchildren; Isaac, Alison, Benjamin, Olivia, Daniel, Melissa, Robert, and Joshua; and her great grandchild, Quinn.
