Allo Linda Stewart

Linda Stewart was born in Sacramento, California in 1943. She was raised in Boonville, California. Her mother, Beth Tuttle, was a schoolteacher and born into one of California’s early settler families. Linda’s father, Walter (Shine) Tuttle, moved to Anderson Valley in his early 20’s and was one of the contractors who helped build many of the structures in Anderson Valley today. 

Linda married a man from Philo and had two children, Nancy and Brian. After the end of her marriage to Brad Witherell, Linda married Charles (Chuck) Stewart, who was raised in Walla Walla, Washington. Chuck and Linda recently celebrated 37 years of marriage. Chuck brought to their family two children of his own, K.C. and Kelly.

Linda worked as a teacher’s assistant in the 1st grade at Windsor School District for 10 years and later for the Federal Government both at the Warm Springs Dam in Healdsburg and then as a Purchasing Agent for the Bureau of Land Management in Ukiah.

Linda and Chuck moved to Potter Valley in 2004, where they tended 8 acres of vineyards. Linda quickly became engaged with her community. She joined the Potter Valley Garden Club shortly after moving to Potter Valley, becoming the Vice President in 2007, a position she held until her resignation in 2021. She and Chuck enjoyed many adventures in their motorhome when the vineyard allowed, traveling near and far to visit family, small towns they had grown to enjoy, and beautiful parks, and to attend spring training.

Linda was never happier than when surrounded by her friends and family in her beautiful Potter Valley home and garden. The family is enormously grateful that she was able to remain at her new Santa Rosa home with support from hospice and that she passed peacefully with her loving husband at her side, surrounded by family.

Linda is predeceased by her sister and brother-in-law, Doris and Ron Vaughn, and her grandson Wiley Bellen. She is survived by her husband, Charles (Chuck) Stewart, her sister, Betty Hiatt; her children, Nancy Witherell (Betty Andrews), Brian Witherell, K.C. Stewart (Mysty), and Kelly Tynan (Tom); her grandchildren, Daphne Witherell, Bennett Witherell, Nichole Sahlbach (Michael), Derek Weaver, Samantha Stewart, and Kyle Stewart; her great-granddaughter, Scarlett Sahlbach; and a host of nieces and nephews dear to her heart.

A Celebration of Linda’s Life will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, January 14th at the Potter Valley United Methodist Church. A private burial will be held prior on January 3rd in Boonville. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that a donation be made in Linda’s Memory to the Anderson Valley Historical Society, the Potter Valley Garden Club, Sutter Care at Home (Hospice), or a cancer-oriented charity of your choice.
