October 01, 1941 – March 19, 2021
Linda Shaw Lupold, of Camden, S.C., passed away peacefully in her home March 19, 2021. She will be remembered most by her daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Michael Westbury. Teddy, her most recent beloved rescue dog, will miss her most.
Born October 1, 1941 in the old Camden Hospital, Linda was the first child of Lillian Shaw and Grayson Shaw. She attended First Baptist Church Camden and Camden public schools. In her senior year, she had the honor of being voted best dressed by her classmates.
Linda continued her education at Columbia College where she earned a bachelor’s degree with a major in business and a minor in Spanish. During this time, she met and married Mac Lupold. She taught at Dent Middle School and had two children while living in Columbia.
Once established in Holly Hill, “Miss Linda” was the first secretary at Holly Hill Academy where she taught typing and sponsored the yearbook. She wore many other hats to ensure HHA was in good hands. Later in her career there, she taught Spanish.
Linda enjoyed being a member of bridge, garden, and steak clubs, and she treasured the friends she made along the way. Cooking meals from scratch, growing award-winning roses, and sewing of all sorts were some of her favorite pastimes. She discovered her true passion when she went to Sanibel where she became an avid shell collector.
From crabbing in Wilmington to eating out in Augusta to tending to her herb garden in Camden, Linda found purpose with her time. Breaking bread with family, feeding and watching the birds, and rescuing dogs gave her great joy. She kept a jigsaw puzzle in progress most of the time.
Linda was a member of Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church where she attended the Inquirers Sunday school class and church with her husband. Donating money, making phone calls, and preparing dishes, she was a member of the Nettles-Rast Circle and served on the Calling Committee. She maintained an unwavering faith throughout her life of almost eighty years.
Predeceased by her son, Mac Lupold, Jr. followed by her parents and her husband, Linda is survived not only by her daughter, son-in-law, and dog but also by her brother and sister-in-law, Grayson and Susan Shaw, nieces and nephews.
Linda’s family would like to thank the staff at Morningside of Camden for their tender loving care for going on two years as well as the team at Medical Services of America for their physical and spiritual support during her last week.
A private graveside service will be held at Elmwood Cemetery in Columbia, S.C. with Rev. Frank Griffith, Jr. officiating. Amy and Mike would like to have a visitation at their home later in the year when COVID-19 restrictions have been lifted.
Kornegay Funeral Home, Camden Chapel, is in charge of arrangements.
Memorial contributions may be sent to your local Humane Society or to Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church, 1206a Lyttleton Street, Camden, S.C. 29020 or online. https://lsumc.net/
