Just Desserts by Linda—Business Closure Announcement – January 2018

It is with bittersweet emotions that I am writing this message to announce the closure of JUST DESSERTS by Linda.  Our last day of operation was December 31, 2017. 

I’m grateful for the many years our clients, family, friends and associates have supported and patronized the bakery.  Without you, I could not have continued my love and passion for 21 years!  Thank you for allowing me to work alongside you to create so many memorable dessert experiences.  I will carry these fond memories in my heart.

To Bruce and Suzanne Reamer:  Honestly, I was floored the day I met with Bruce to discuss renting the commercial kitchen.  After a 20 minute conversation, he stood up and handed me the keys to the kitchen!  Thank you for 13 years of friendship and trust.  I’m so blessed to have met you both.

To my husband Richard:  Thank you for being there through thick and thin.  Being my “go to guy” when I needed construction assistance.  For having patience with me when I was stressed.  You allowed me to live my dream and I am eternally grateful.


Moving forward, my desire is to find a bakery that needs part time help.  It brings me much joy and pleasure to create desserts, so perhaps after January 2018 you will see me pop up at a bakery near you.

My husband Richard and I are looking forward to “semi-retirement” and to what this next chapter holds for us.  We are hoping to enjoy more family time and the pursuit of hobbies we have set on the sidelines for so long.  It’s an exciting time and we are looking forward to the adventure!

Each and every one of you has enriched my life beyond measure.  Thank you for the experience and letting me play a bit part in your life!  I hope our paths will meet again.

Until then,
Happy Baking!
