WAKE FOREST — Linda Sue Peterson Richardson Taylor, 76, passed away at home surrounded by family, Sunday, Sept. 20, 2020.

She was born Oct. 24, 1943, in Grant, Michigan, daughter of the late Lauren and Evelyn Peterson.

In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her husband, Timothy Taylor of Newaygo, Michigan; her brother, Peter H. Peterson of Grand Rapids, Michigan; and granddaughter, Briley Ashlyn Moore, of Raleigh.

She is survived by her daughter, Laura Bullis Moore and husband, Mark Alan Moore Sr., of Wake Forest; her son, Stephan Michael Bullis of Butner; brother, Dennis Peterson and wife, Bobbie Jo, of Daleville, Alabama; sister Jane Rudd of Grand Rapids, Michigan; and her beloved grandchildren, Mark Alan Moore Jr. and Shannah Grace Moore, both of Wake Forest.

Linda spent 25 years working for the Department of Social Services in Michigan. After her retirement she became passionate about all issues pertaining to Veterans. She spent time at the VA Home in Grand Rapids volunteering. She also became active with the VFW in Newaygo, Michigan and spent several years helping with various activities. Her favorite activity by far was her participation in the VFW’s Honor Guard. In 2017, Linda moved to Wake Forest to spend the remainder of her retirement with her children and grandchildren.

A memorial service celebrating Linda’s life will be held in Newaygo, Michigan, to be advised at a future time.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made in her name to the VA Home in Grand Rapids Michigan or the Disabled American Veterans Organization.

Bright Funeral Home, Wake Forest, is serving the Richardson family.
