Linda’s loving family is her legacy. Her life’s path was not smooth, but I believe she tried her best. She was a calm presence in the LIC office and her friendliness with kids and parents was greatly appreciated. I know she is in a better place where she has no more struggles.Kathy Zipser

Linda was our school secretary at Landisville and was always a bright light in the office. Her smile could light up the room. Her greatest accomplishment, in my opinion, was giving the world her four daughters, the Pennino sisters, who spread love and kindness wherever they go. The world is a better place with Linda’s daughters in it.
With heartfelt condolences to the family,
