Linda McLaughlin Obituary

Linda (Peyton) McLaughlin gained her angel wings on Saturday February 3, 2024, surrounded by her family. 

She is survived by her three children Tisha (Rick) Castle, Amy (Eric) Masek and Ryan McLaughlin, her six grandchildren Erin Brown, Morgan Brown, Levi Castle, Ben Dillman, Cooper McLaughlin and Hadley McLaughlin, her sister Ilse Garrett, her great-aunt Ilsa Brown along with several nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents Paul and Ruth Peyton and her brother Paul Peyton Jr. 

Linda was born on March 25, 1954 in Stuttgart, Germany. She was the light of her grandmother's eye. Linda became an American citizen in 1957. She grew up and lived most of her life in Danville.  She was very involved with her community through her job at Crosspoint. Linda previously was a daycare teacher at Central Christian and then the YWCA Daycare. She enjoyed being a teacher very much and seeing her "daycare kids" now all grown up. Linda was extremely passionate about the homeless community in our area. She loved putting together the Soup Kitchen for the Vermilion County Continuum of Care. Linda was honored last April to receive a Community Service Award from East Central Illinois Community Action. She worked at Crosspoint Human Services as the Permanent Housing/HUD Program Coordinator. 

Linda loved her dogs, Mia and Opie. She enjoyed being in her backyard watching birds and other wildlife. She enjoyed tending to her many flowers and plants. Linda liked going to area craft shows with her daughter. She loved her grandchildren and always told them that she loved them to the moon and back. Linda will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Upon Linda's wishes, her family has arranged to hold a private celebration of life. To honor Linda, you may make a donation to the YRFC Homeless Program through Crosspoint.
