Linda McCartney - Biography - AOL Music (395 words)
Linda's marriage to Paul, the last remaining bachelor among the Fab Four, caused a major media furor -- as a divorcée and single mother (she was briefly married during the late 1950s), she was the subject of considerable criticism from moral watchdogs and Beatles fans alike.
McCartney was more successful outside of music, earning respect as a high-profile force for animal rights; a staunch vegetarian, she published a series of best-selling cookbooks (1989's Home Cooking and 1995's Linda's Kitchen among them) and also created her own highly profitable line of frozen vegetarian meals produced at ecologically-sensitive factories.
In 1995 McCartney was diagnosed with breast cancer, and on April 17, 1998 the disease took her life at the age of 56; a collection of solo recordings, Wide Prairie, was issued posthumously later that same year.
Linda McCartney - Linda's Story and Linda and Paul (3582 words)
Linda McCartney, the late wife of Beatles singer Paul McCartney, was raised in Scarsdale, N.Y. as the daughter of Louise Lindner and prominent entertainment lawyer Lee Eastman.
Linda’s idea of ready-made vegetarian meals was also a success; in 1991, the meals were on the shelves at popular supermarkets, and as many as five million of the popular meals had been purchased within that same year.
Linda continued to undergo treatments, and in 1998, in spite of those treatments that she had undergone for the cancer, it had spread to her liver, and she died at the family ranch in Tucson, Arizona, on April 17th, 1998.
