 Linda Marie Alters passed peacefully Monday morning, March 8, 2021 at the age of 73. Linda was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, aunt, sister, friend and the second mother to many. She touched so many lives in so many ways it was not only immeasurable but impossible to put into words. Linda, a true warrior, was the great centerpiece of her family offering sage words of advice or even a simple “Just checking in” text. She would welcome you with a smile, hug, a cup of coffee or, anything else she knew you needed when you walked in her always-open front door, which was flanked by a flag representing her beloved Chicago Cubs.
Linda is survived by her loving husband of 55 years, Mr. David Alters, their four children; Tracy Schultz, Karin Alters, David Alters Jr, Jeff (Katie) Alters, their grandchildren Bradley (Ashley) Schultz, Brittany (Alexander) Fermo, Baylee Schultz, Lauren Alters and Jack David Alters. She is also survived by her sisters Suzie Verkaik,Jill (William) Vassilogambros and Jackie Smith, sister‐in-law Jackie Pleasant and many other cherished cousins, nieces and nephews.
Linda was preceded in death by her father, William Pleasant Sr, her mother, Maxine Pleasant, her beloved brother, William ‘Billy’ Pleasant Jr, her darling nephew, William Pleasant III and her brother‐in‐law,  Kenneth Smith.

At this time, the family will honor her memory privately but will announce details of a celebration of life later. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Illinois Beagle Rescue would be greatly appreciated, as she loved her Beagle babies dearly (Buddy, Wrigley, Charlie). Laird Funeral Home of West Dundee is in care of arrangements. 847-836-8770 or www.lairdfamilyfuneralservices.com
