Quring made headlines in 2011 and beyond for heading one of the first monument companies to embrace new technology, His company created a new type of headstone that connects people regardless of where they reside. Our “Living Headstone” memorial “blends the timeless traditional value of granite headstones with the newest technology available, to provide an interactive ‘living’ memorial legacy for future generations,” he wrote in a news release. The headstone included a QR code embedded in the headstone that made it interactive. The invention garnered headlines nationwide.
A native of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Linda Quiring was a longtime resident of the Northwest, settling in Snohomish and making it her home, according to her obituary.
“Linda was one to whom family was important and meant love and caring. She gloried in the warmth of her grandchildren and great grandchildren and made herself available to them whenever they needed help or friendship,” her obituary states.
