CHESAPEAKE- Linda Arlene Archer Legum, 74, died January 21, 2021. Linda was born in Portsmouth to the late William James Archer, Jr. and Bertie Harris Archer. She was predeceased by her son, Aaron A. Legum.
Linda was a graduate of Wilson High School and received her Bachelor’s of Education from Old Dominion University. After marrying Larry, the love of her life, Linda worked as an elementary school teacher in Nelson County, Virginia, for four years. Once her children were born, she devoted her time and attention to raising her family and working in her husband’s medical practice as his “boss” and office manager. Later in life, she enjoyed bowling and playing Bunco. On Sundays at 40th Street, Linda could be seen enjoying the beach with book in hand, surrounded by the beach people and relaxing in the sun. She was an avid reader, loved to travel and shop, and above all else, spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Linda will be fondly remembered as a ray of sunshine beaming down her warmth on the friends and family she loved so dearly.
