Linda was born on Feb. 27, 1952, in Granville, the daughter of Raymond and Elizabeth (Bettese) Howland.

Linda fought a long and courageous battle with cancer. After her first round of cancer treatment, she became an active volunteer and inspiration to many who were also battling the disease. She spent a lot of time with other patients, both in the cancer treatment center and during their stays in the hospital. She was a very loving and devoted grandmother to her two granddaughters Taylor and Melissa Park. They were her world. She was involved in all phases of their lives. Linda enjoyed trips to Maine and the Nubble Lighthouse at Cape Neddick, in particular.  She was a past member of the Sylvan Star-Skenesborough Chapter 122, Order of the Eastern Star.

Survivors are her two sons, Joshua Park of Queensbury and Theron Park Jr. and his wife, Daniella, of Yonkers; her two stepchildren, James Park and Lori Marelle, both of Wells, Vt.; and a brother, Ron Howland of Rutland, Vt. Also surviving are her beloved grandchildren, Taylor and Melissa, as well as six step-grandchildren.  Linda was also survived by her special friend and longtime companion, Jim Buxton.

A graveside funeral service will be held on Saturday, Dec. 18, at 10 a.m. at the Wells Cemetery in Wells, Vt., with the Rev. Art Peters officiating.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Charles R. Wood Cancer Center, Pruyn Pavillion at Glens Falls Hospital in Linda’s memory.

Arrangements are under the direction of the Robert M. King Funeral Home, 23 Church St., Granville, N.Y.
