  • I met Linda decades ago as the mother of my dear friend Dawn. She always was a kind, generous, happy woman. Linda was a devoted wife, loving mother, and doting grandmother. She gave so much & impacted lives more than she will ever know. Rest in Peace, Linda Jean.

  • I am so sorry to hear of the passing of dear Linda. We met when I was a student at the University of Delaware working in the Accounts Payable Office there and we had exchanged Christmas cards for the last 45 years until just recently. Today I was searching for her new address when I found this memorial. She was a wonderful woman and was so kind and helpful to me and we developed a wonderful friendship that lasted through the years. She always talked so proudly of you Dawn Marie. I am so sorry for your loss. She was an amazing person.
