Mary Linda Crumm passed away peacefully, at home, after an almost two year battle with Cancer.
She was the matriarch of a large (over 200 members) extended family originating from her parents.

She was loving, caring and constantly eager to share in their lives and provide wisdom and advice, when requested. She will be loved and missed by many.

Linda was born and grew up in Winslow, Arizona and graduated from Winslow High School in 1962.
She then was married and moved to California, with her husband. She entered Nursing School at Chabot College, graduated and was awarded an A.A. Degree in Nursing in 1977. She then became a Registered Nurse (R.N.) and worked as an R.N. at Good Samaritan Hospital, San Jose, CA until she sustained an injury to her back and was forced to accept a disability retirement. Since then Linda enjoyed life with her husband and finished raising two sons. Then circumstances dictated that Linda once again was called upon to provide love and care to raise her twin grand children, from birth until they went to college. Linda has been extremely busy and caring throughout her life and is now at rest, which she has surely earned.

The family will keep everyone interested advised of the details as they are developed.
