Lynda T. Freeman, 94

Lynda T. Freeman, 94, a life-long resident of Whitehall, N.Y., passed away on May 30, 2013 at The Eddy Village Green in Cohoes.

Born on Aug. 16, 1918, Lynda was the daughter of the late Mary and Arthur Pippo. A loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend, Lynda also enjoyed many other roles during her lifetime. As a licensed beautician, she owned and operated a successful beauty shop out of her home for many years. Lynda went on to become bookkeeper/manager for Chadwick and Pippo’s Hardware Store (later Pippo’s Hardware), a local business in which her brother was a partner. She remained in that position until the store’s closing. Using her cooking and baking skills was always a pleasure for Lynda. She delighted in sharing her pasta sauce, Italian specialty dishes, and from-scratch baked goods with family and friends.

Lynda was a woman of strong faith. A source of great satisfaction for her was time devoted to her church. For years, Lynda served on the Working Committee of Our Lady of Angels Church, and she also taught religious education classes at OLA. She later volunteered in various capacities at Our Lady of Hope Church. Lynda was a life-time member of the Catholic Daughters of America, and a founding member of the local Ladies of Mt. Carmel.

In addition to her parents, Lynda was predeceased by her husband, John W. Freeman, her brother, Vincent Pippo, and her sister, Mary Barber. Survivors include her daughters, Jilda Freeman of Guilderland, NY, and Lynda Freeman-Finelli (John D.) of Wynantskill, N.Y., and her beloved grandsons, John, Joseph, and James Finelli. In addition, Lynda had a devoted extended family of nephews, great-niece, great-nephew, great-great-nephew, and sister-in-law.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held on Monday, June 3 at Our Lady of Hope Roman Catholic Church, Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall with Rev. Rendell Torres, pastor, officiating. Interment followed at Our Lady of Angels Cemetery, Whitehall.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to Our Lady Hope Roman Catholic Church, 9 Wheeler Avenue, Whitehall, NY 12887 or to a favorite charity.
