Linda Louise Adams, age 75, of Meridian, Idaho, passed away peacefully on July 17, 2023. Born on July 5, 1948, in Elberfeld, Indiana, Linda was the beloved daughter of Dorothy and Ralph Adams.
After graduating from Tecumseh High School in 1966, Linda pursued her passion for fashion by attending Dress Design School in Chicago, where she met her first husband, William Homer. Together, they embarked on a journey westward, settling in San Jose, California, where they raised five children.
Linda's life was a testament to her love and dedication to others, especially within The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She found immense joy in serving the youth program, touching the lives of countless young souls and offering her support to the lost and lonely. Linda's heart overflowed with compassion, and her selfless acts of kindness left an indelible mark on the lives she touched.
Linda's creative spirit knew no bounds. She possessed a remarkable talent for transforming church gyms into enchanting wedding reception venues, infusing each celebration with a touch of her artistic flair. Her eye for design and passion for creating beautiful flower arrangements brought joy to numerous events and celebrations, leaving lasting impressions on all who witnessed her work.
Renowned for her exceptional sewing skills, Linda's creative talents knew no bounds. From her early years, she honed her craft, making her own clothes throughout high school. This passion for sewing carried on into adulthood, where she created school uniforms, enchanting dance costumes for children, cozy pajamas, elegant church dresses, and an array of imaginative Halloween costumes. Her expertise extended to designing costumes for various dance teams, including the esteemed Raiderettes. Generous and warm-hearted, Linda was a source of support for brides-to-be, lending her skilled hands in crafting wedding dresses and bridesmaids' gowns.
Linda Louise Adams is survived by her children: Laurie and David of Morgan Hill, California; Evan and Bridget of Brentwood, California; Dorothy and Reed of Meridian, Idaho; Emily of Rohnert Park, California; Nick and Arlett of Scottsdale, Arizona; her sisters, Sylvia Schwartz of Georgia, and Laura Chubick (Jim) of Elberfeld, Indiana; several nieces and nephews.
She was the cherished grandmother of 21 grandchildren and the proud great-grandmother of 9 great-grandchildren, with one on the way.
Linda's love extended to her grandchildren, as each one was gifted with a cherished baby blessing outfit lovingly made by her hand. Her granddaughters held a special place in her heart, often receiving matching dresses for their Sunday best, creating heartwarming memories that will be cherished for generations.
Linda Louise Adams leaves behind a legacy of love, kindness, and creativity that will forever be etched in the hearts of those who knew and loved her. Her absence will be deeply felt, but her spirit will live on through the lives she touched and the beautiful memories she leaves behind.

Friends and family are invited to gather together to pay their respects and honor the memory of a remarkable woman whose love, generosity, and creativity enriched the lives of those around her.
