Linda B. (Sartelle) Whitfield

Heaven gained another angel when Linda B. Whitfield, 67, of Norwood passed away on November 16, 2022. Beloved wife of 43 years of William Whitfield, Sr., by whom she was survived, as well as adored and devoted mother to William Whitfield, Jr. (daughter-in-law Lorena), and Robert Whitfield (daughter-in-law Sarah), both of Hingham. 

Linda also leaves behind eight grandchildren: Georgina, Nicolas, Isabela, Pascale, Charlotte, Elia, Florence and Lily. In addition, she is survived by her sister Donna (brother-in-law Michael Burns) of Norwood, brother Harry Sartelle of Chelsea, sister Kimberly (brother-in-law Daniel Kelley) of Norfolk, and brother Shawn Sartelle of Bloomington, Indiana, as well as several nieces and nephews.

Born to the late Dorothy and Harry Sartelle, Linda grew up in Somerville, MA. She graduated from Somerville High in 1973, and went on to obtain her associates degree and become a dental assistant. Although she enjoyed her job and spent many years working for an oral surgeon, Linda's greatest accomplishment was being a mother. She had the best times of her life raising her sons, and later, being a doting grandmother. An avid football and hockey lover, Linda was Billy and Bobby’s #1 fan watching them skate as they grew up, and enjoyed football Sundays with Bill, and of course, the occasional trip to Foxwoods with her siblings.  

In her later years, she enjoyed relaxing by the pool or beach, spending time with her dog, Sophie, and traveling to warm destinations like Florida, Mexico and Aruba.

Linda's grandkids will always remember Nana's famous meatballs and sauce, and all the immense love she gave them. Her light-hearted personality, along with her selfless and kind nature, infectious laugh, and innate ability to make those around her feel special will be missed by all who were blessed to know her.

Visiting hours will be held Tuesday, November 22 from 4-7 PM at the Farley Funeral Home, 358 Park St. (Rt. 27), Stoughton. 

Funeral mass will take place Wednesday, November 23 at 10 AM at St. Oscar Romero Parish (formerly St. John the Evangelist Church), Canton. Following, the burial will take place at Knollwood Memorial Park, Canton.
