Dorothea Puente’s daughter, Linda Bloom, didn’t know about her until 1982!

The American serial criminal Dorothea Puente married Fred McFaul, a soldier when she was 16 years old after running from a relative’s house.

The couple reportedly welcomed two daughters between 1946 and 1948 but didn’t raise them.

She sent her elder daughter to live with relatives in Sacramento and placed her younger child, Linda Bloom, for adoption.

Dorothea Puente’s daughter, Linda Bloom, the youngest of two, is a South Pasadena property manager and space planner.

Reportedly, Linda testified before the court, saying Dorothea put her up for adoption when she was just 3 months old.

Unfortunately, Linda had no idea about the identity of her birth mother, Dorothea, until 1982, when she was expecting her own child.

Later, Dorothy’s brother, James G. Gray, the oldest of her six siblings, contacted Linda and provided exclusive details about her birth mother.

Linda revealed that Dorothea had a warm and welcoming aura, reminiscing the time when they first started talking.

They finally met in August 1988 at Dorothea’s house on F Street when Linda stopped briefly at her mother’s house while visiting Sacramento with her family.

During the meeting, Dorothea confessed she loved Linda very much; however, she gave her up for adoption because of the lack of resources.

Similarly, she also confronted about her troubled childhood but didn’t go deep into the intricate details.

Later, Linda learned much about the family history from the daughter of one of Dorothea’s brothers.

Although Dorothea had four husbands, Fred McFaul, Axel Bren Johansson, Roberto Jose Puente, and Pedro Montalvo, she had only children with Fred.

Born as Dorothea Helen Gray, the mother of two took the last name of her third husband, Roberto Jose Puente.
