Linda May Jackson Sweeney, 71 years of age, unexpectedly passed away on January 27, 2022 at Beth Israel Hospital. Linda was born June 16, 1950 to the late Frank and Margaret (Bumpus) Jackson. She was the oldest of three children. Linda is survived by her husband Edward Sweeney; her two sons David R. Keirstead of New Bedford, MA and Michael S. Keirstead of Middleboro, MA; her siblings Robert A. Jackson of Sharon, NH and Margaret A. Mahoney of Sutton, MA. Linda graduated from Belmont High School in 1968.
She was a devoted Mom, wife, daughter, sister and friend who leaves so many family and friends that miss her dearly. Her infectious laughter and caring ways will always be remembered. Spending time with family and friends meant the world to her and she always “liked” whatever pictures friends posted on social media. She always looked forward to a special meal and a good movie and shared a life-long interest in dolls and coloring with her cousins. Linda had a special place in her heart for dogs and enjoyed a fun time listening to music. Furthermore, she had a “green thumb” with any house plants, vegetables, and flowers. Her hope was always found in her faith in God.
A private graveside service and celebration of life will be held in May. Donations in her honor can be made to: MSPCA-Angell, 350 South Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02130 or online at https://www.mspca.org/donate-now/tribute-honor-and-memorial-giving/
