Born in Kingston, PA on October 14, 1955 to Jean Krommes Delinsky & the late Edward Delinsky.

  1. May God send the comforter to the family at their time of sorrow. I didn’t know Linda well but each time I saw her she was friendly and cooperative. Always trying to help, a real sweet lady. A lovely soul has gone home. I pray your strength in the Lord. Rest in Paradise, Linda.

  2. Erica and Matthew, I’m so sorry to hear about your mothers passing. She was a wonderful woman and friend. She had so much compassion for others and one thing that she was very firm about was her family. Her family was always her main focus. I’m going to miss our long talks at night but I’ll never forget her gentle voice. Once again, my condolences to your family.
