Linda had many friends at Valley Health Services and will be dearly missed.
    Linda is survived by her daughter, Courtney and her husband, Tom Nacco, of Fultonville; a brother-in-law, Larry Paul, of Mohawk; a sister-in-law, Sally Kennell, of Fort Wayne, Ind.; and several special nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a sister, Barbara Paul, and a brother, Phillip Kennell. She also leaves behind a special friend, Laurence Goodstal, and was excited about the upcoming birth of her first granddaughter in March.
