Linda worked for almost 40 years as a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital/Akron Children’s Hospital. She was a member of the transport team in Boardman and was passionate about the babies and the families she cared for.
Her favorite way to spend time was with her grandchildren and her only rule for them was there were no rules, except to be happy, healthy and safe.
