Obituary of Linda Holly
Please share a memory of Linda to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Our dear mother and sister Linda D. Holly passed away at the age of 64 early in the morning on Sunday February 5th, 2022 after a brief illness. Linda was a lifelong resident of northeast Pennsylvania and was living as the caretaker of her brother, Ted Hartman, in Hughestown at the time of her passing. Linda was born on chilly and breezy Sunday morning on February 23rd, 1958 in Scranton PA. Her parents were the late James C. and Lois Ross. Linda spent her childhood in Factoryville and Nicholson, graduating from Lackawanna Trail High School in 1976.
Her greatest joy was watching her two sons live their lives and dreams all over the United States. Her eldest, James and Wife Sandy, reside in the sweltering heat of Apollo Beach Florida while her youngest, Justin, resides in the snowcapped mountains of Utah. Linda is also survived by two brothers, Dennis Ross (Linda) of Scranton and Ted Hartman of Hughestown. Linda enjoyed country music, rooting for Penn State and the Eagles during football season, and hearing about the latest escapades of her grand dogs.
Linda was preceded in death by both her parents and a younger brother, Billy Ross. Linda spent her life helping and supporting others, whether it was as the loudest cheerleader at all of her sons’ sporting events or for the last 20 years taking care of Ted and many others as a home health nurse.
Linda will be missed and her memory carried on in the loving eyes of James, Justin, and all those who knew her.
At Linda’s request, there will not be any public services.
