Dedication held for teacher’s memorial
LYNDEBOROUGH – Family members and friends gathered around the flagpole at Central School, now the Early Learning Center, on Sunday morning, July 23, to quietly dedicate a memorial to Linda Buttrick.
Buttrick taught at the school for 30 years. It was given in her memory by colleagues and the School Board.
Buttrick’s grandsons, Dylan and Gavin, planted her favorite purple flowers beside the simple marker at the base of the flagpole. For many years, Buttrick led her students in the morning flag raising, and taught them proper flag etiquette, citizenship and patriotic songs.
She was remembered for her laughter, her courage in fighting her long illness, her love of celebrating everything and her devotion to square dancing.
