Linda (Eurbin) Jennett ENGLEWOOD, Fla. — Linda (Eurbin) Jennett, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and cherished friend to many throughout her life, completed her life’s journey on Aug. 7, 2019. Linda was born April 11, 1941, in Barre, Vermont, the first child of Harold “Cracker” Eurbin and Catherine “Kitty” (Mudgett) Eurbin, both of whom predeceased her. Linda is survived by her husband, Jan Jennett, the love of her life, who resides in Englewood; their two wonderful children Jay Jennett and wife Jayne, and Carrie Roberge and husband Michael; two precious grandchildren Ryan and Kristen Roberge; brother Ronald Eurbin and wife Francine, sister Carlene Rea and husband Andrew, brother Todd Eurbin; a very special friend, Penny Ford; several nieces, nephews and cousins. Linda was blessed to have a very special sister-in-law, Bonnie Chouinard, who was available to help with Linda’s needs over the past three winters in Florida. Linda lived most of her early life in Northfield, Vermont, where she and her future husband, Jan, met in grammar school. When she graduated from Northfield High School in 1959, her classmates voted Linda the “Most Athletic” girl in the class. Linda is very fondly remembered by all her NHS classmates, as she helped organize many of their class reunions for more than 50 years. Linda had a lifelong interest in golf that was fostered as a teenager on the links at Northfield Country Club where she studied the game with her teacher and mentor, Sam Fernandez. Following high school, Linda served on active duty with the U.S. Air Force for three years. During that time, she was able to pursue her love of golf and she was selected to represent the Air Force in tournaments throughout the United States. Linda had a stellar career during her three years on the Air Force Golf Team. Following her tour with the Air Force, Linda continued to win golf tournaments at the Northfield Country Club, with many runner-up finishes at Myakka Pines Golf Course in Englewood. She enjoyed playing golf in Florida until Alzheimer's brought her love affair with the sport to an end. She especially enjoyed the many years she played on “away” courses with Jan and a special group of their friends. Linda always said that she was taking the long cart path to Heaven to be with all the wonderful folks whom she had the pleasure of teaching and playing golf with throughout her life. Surely, she is up there now teeing off with them. There will be a memorial gathering for Linda at the Northfield Country Club from 12 to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 14, 2019. In lieu of flowers, you may choose to donate towards a granite bench to be placed at the Northfield Country Club in Linda’s honor. If you wish to mail a check, please send to Jan Jennett no later then Sept. 9, to 150 Englewood Heights Road, Englewood, FL 34223.
