Linda Walls, 67, of New Philadelphia, Ohio passed away in a car accident on Friday June 3, 2022.
A flower child and lover of learning at heart, Linda graduated from New Philadelphia High School in 1973, and completed her bachelors and master’s degrees from Kent State University. She was a lifelong member of the Congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Linda had a few different careers throughout her lifetime, but the ones that were most important to her were mother to her daughter Laura and caregiver for her elderly parents before they passed.
Linda loved serving Jehovah, spending as much time as possible with her daughter, laughing, nature, reading, music, shopping and all animals. She loved nature and the earth so much, she often considered protesting when neighbors were cutting down “perfectly healthy trees” with a “tree lives matter” sign.
Preceded in death by her sister, Brenda Walls DeVolld and her parents, Paul and Betty Walls. She leaves behind her daughter, Laura Lab (Jocelyn Boehm), nephew, Michael (Kate) DeVolld, and her two grand-puppies, Peanut and Payton.
Per her wishes, no services will be held. In her honor, please consider planting a tree, spending time enjoying nature or donating to Community Hospice, 716 Commercial Ave SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663. Condolences and special memories of Linda can be shared with her family online at
