I am so sorry to hear about Linda’s passing. I also graduated from Wheeling Hospital 1967 and Linda was my room mate for a time. Linda’s husband was a good friend of my husband and they would travel to Wheeling from Huntington to come and see us. After we got married and moved apart, we lost contact. I finally found Linda this past summer and I loved talking with her again. Rest in Peace dear friend. Our sympathy to her family.

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your Mother. I have known Linda since we were in nursing training together, she shared the room of my roommate Judy Yahn deceased and myself. And we got along wonderfully, she was so calm, nice and so sweet. We lost cotact after graduation in 1968, but anytime that I had to have surgery at Wheelng Hospital, Linda would show up like a guardian angel to be my nurse anesthesist for my surgery. Just being with her gave me such peace of mind. You all were blessed to have Linda as you Mother, may she rest in peace and may God bless you all.
