We are deeply saddened by the loss of NCNO Membership Secretary Linda Findley.
“The Nation’s Capital Norton Owners is a very diverse group of the most wonderful people in the DC area. Linda and Dale joined our club in 1989, when Dale purchased his 75 Norton Commando. Linda Findley was a spirit of sunshine and goodness that made her a very valuable member of the club. Her presence at meetings brought a sense of wellbeing to everyone when she just said hello. She had an entertaining cackle like a witch with the smile of an angel that added to the excitement and enjoyment of the club camaraderie.
She was loved and will be missed and remembered by everyone.”
