Linda’s laugh and smile were the best. She always made us feel at home with her wonderful cream cheese chocolate cupcakes and any other concoction she threw together. She had fascinating books, always had something to share and was a dedicated Mom - to all of us. She will be missed - love you friend.

Dear Cousin Robin and Uncle Bob … please except our deepest sympathies for the loss of your beautiful mother. Her sweet nature surely past on to you Robin and now she lives in your heart …. The devotion you and your dad cared for her during this most difficult part of her life certainly remains etched in your family’s memory forever . May the tears you shed not only be for what you lost …. but more importantly what you gained by having her as your mother . With love and sympathy… Shirley and Kenny Foley

I will miss Linda's quirky humor. Her love for life and family. The time she had a coupon for photos to taken of our three girls. Robin, Lisa and Kathy. We had so much fun just laughing at the silliness of it all. She will be missed by everyone who loved her. May she rest in peace. My condolences to all of her family and friends.
