She received her associates degree in court reporting from Central Penn College, and practiced court reporting throughout Pennsylvania and Virginia. Her joyous approach to life was infectious, whether it be at a party, on the ski slopes, or relaxing with friends. She and her husband loved the ocean and built or renovated cozy homes near the water in Virginia and Delaware, before returning to Eastern Pennsylvania to be near Robert’s son, Vincent. Linda used her passion for gardening and cooking to make her home a beautiful and welcoming place. She was also an avid crafter, including upcycling chenille bedspreads into comfortable and stylish robes. Linda loved being around people and enjoyed sharing her crafts through local flea markets. Linda also loved her dog Toby and donated generously to animal charities. Her steadfast faith, expressed through donations to God’s work and through her book “Don’t be Afraid to Die”, is a great comfort to those she leaves behind.
Linda was preceded in death by husband Robert and step son Vincent. She is survived by sister Ruth and her husband Robert McCloskey, brother John, brother David and his husband Darryl Aspelin, sister-in-law Debbie Brown and her husband David, nephew Fred Cicilioni and his wife Katie, nephew John Cicilioni and his wife Heather, nephew Robert McCloskey, great nephew Jackson Cicilioni, great niece Charlotte Cicilioni, close friends Millie Clark, Priscilla Captain, and all her Arbor Gate friends and neighbors. The family will hold a private memorial service at Newton Lake, a place of special importance during Linda’s childhood and adult life. The family welcomes donations to the Humane Society’s Griffin Pond Animal Shelter as an expression of sympathy.
