Linda Holt, 77 of Stevensville passed away peacefully on Dec. 11, 2019.

Linda was born April 7, 1942 to John and Marjorie Van Dyke in Grand Rapids, MI. Linda was a 1960 graduate of Benton Harbor High School and in 1963 became a Registered Nurse following her training at Blodgett Hospital in East Grand Rapids. Linda married David Holt on December 12, 1964, and together they had two sons Steve (Angela) of Clarksville and Blake (Ann) of Holt. Linda loved being a grandmother to Devon, Andrea and Erin. She also took great pride in service to others and her community. For 40 plus years she practiced as a caring and compassionate RN in hospitals, physician’s offices and community health settings in Southwest Michigan. She also had a passion for education serving on Boards of Education for both Lakeshore Public Schools and the Berrien Regional Education Service Agency. During her 35 years on these boards, she took nearly 2,000 education credits, reaching a Master Platinum Award. She was a wonderful wife, mother and friend who will be missed by all who knew her well.

A service celebrating Linda’s life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to a charity of choice with an emphasis on health care or education. As one option, the family suggests checks be sent to Berrien RESA with PHCA (Professional Health Careers Academy) noted on the memo line to Berrien Regional Education Service Agency, P.O. Box 364, 711 St. Joseph Ave., Berrien Springs, MI 49103-0364. Arrangements have been entrusted to Starks & Menchinger Chapel & Cremation Services 556-9450.

I worked with Linda for years....Wonderful wonderful person who touched so many lives with her compassionate heart and caring ways. I remember the conversation that we had together her last day before retirement. She will be missed by all that knew and loved her. Prayers and Healing to her family. Rest In Peace Linda.

My heart is with my good friend and the best school board president I knew in my 18 years as a school superintendent. Linda Holt passed on this week. Her life was all about family, nursing in mental health, and education where she began her lifelong service as school board member/President in 1986...winning a write-in campaign. Linda used our English language in a beautiful, graceful manner. You could “see” the words she spoke. Most of all, she was a great person and good friend. I celebrate her life here and am excited about where that radiant Soul will next appear. Soar Madam President! ❤️☮️
