  Linda Gwendolyn Mock, 72, of Elmore Avenue, Springfield, passed away on Monday, May 9, 2022 at home.  Born in Princeton, West Virginia she was a daughter of the late James Henry Mock, Sr  and Shirley Ann (Harris) Mock.  The Mock family came to Western Massachusetts as a result of their father's Transfer during active duty at  Westover Air Force Base in Chicopee, MA.

  Linda, received her Bachelor's degree from Elms College and her Master of Social Work degree from the University of Connecticut.   She had many successful years at Head Start as a social worker and volunteer coordinator.  Sadly and all too soon her working career was abridged when Linda suffered a life altering stroke.   She was an out- going, well spoken, quirky individual with a heightened fashion sense.  Her laureates were not only academic as Linda was known throughout the Mock family  as  the "gift giver;"  the one who loved to help any and everyone. She was extremely detail oriented and loved to plan and organize all manner of family activities.

  Predeceased by her father and a son Alfred Katiba Mock, she leaves to cherish her memory: her mother Shirley Mock, two sons Alexi Khalil Mock and Avery Kareem Mock and a brother James Henry Mock, Jr., all of Springfield; five sisters Janet Mock and Lisa Mock both of Springfield, Rosland Wilson of Jacksonville, FL, Vera (Mock )Lester of  Norfolk, VA and Donna Mock of Atlanta, GA; her lifetime partner James Eaddy; two grandchildren Kii-esha Perry and Noah Cobb and three great-grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends.

A memorial service  to honor Linda's life will be held at a later date.
