Linda Sibley Clark
Feb. 28, 1964 - March 1, 2014

Linda Sibley Clark passed away peacefully on March 1 - the day after her 50th birthday - surrounded by loving family at her home, after a courageous and tenacious five-year battle with cancer. She was born on Feb. 28, 1964 in Calais, the daughter of Loren Sibley and Patricia Beane Sibley. A graduate of Wiscasset High School with the class of 1982, after high school Linda went on to attend classes in music at the University of Maine at Augusta.

In her younger years Linda would wait tables at the Blue Ship restaurant, now Andrews' Harborside, in the summer months and spend the winter months in Florida. A longtime and well-loved resident of Boothbay Harbor, she worked as a dental assistant for practices in the area - first with Dr. Bevens and then with Dr. Barker at Coastal Dental Arts.

She was always ambitious and always "seeing the glass as full." She owned a successful cleaning business, "Leave it to Linda." Next to her family the thing Linda loved the most was music. She was an accomplished vocalist and guitarist, and played a variety of different instruments for bands both locally and regionally. Linda was a multi- talented individual who loved to perform and felt at home on any stage.

Her family was very important to her and she loved nothing more than to spend time with them. Everyone looked forward to gathering at her home in Boothbay Harbor; she was a phenomenal cook and the house was filled with games, laughter, and awesomeness. Linda enjoyed crafting, boating, and being outside, especially at camp. She had an infectious personality and a beautiful spirit that touched everyone she met. She embraced life's joys as well as its challenges.
