City Clerk Linda Stock died this morning.

“Linda passed away peacefully early this morning in her home surrounded by her family,” said Paul Beckwith, Republican Town Committee chairman.

“Linda will be greatly missed by me and all of us who called her friend,” Beckwith said. “Her love for our great city and her service to it will never be forgotten. Milford has lost a great servant, but today Heaven gained another beautiful angel.”

Stock had been battling an illness for some time.

Stock ran for her third term as city clerk last year and won reelection.

A long-time city employee, having worked in the building department many years, Stock was very proud to serve as Milford’s city clerk.

During her last campaign, she pointed out that the office had been revamped so that it is a safer, more comfortable environment, and that many land records are now on line. During her time as city clerk, she worked to improve customer service and make the office more user friendly for residents.

Services will be published as soon as they are announced.
