Linda J. age 65 formerly of New Hope. Linda’s journey with pancreatic cancer ended on Nov. 29th after a year of living life to the fullest. She will be remembered and missed everyday. To many, her passing seems sudden, but God answered her dying prayer: to pass peacefully and without pain or loss of mobility and consciousness. Her transition from full independence in her earthly body to the Eternal life of her spirit took less than one month. She was ready.
Preceded in death by husband of 41 years, Mark Haggerty; parents, Earl and Ruth Olson, William and Dorothy Haggerty (mother and father-in-law); brother-in-laws, Jim Feely, John Haggerty, & Bob Haggerty. Survived by children, Marcia (Lonnie Holley) Haggerty, Brian (Sarah) Haggerty, Carol (Jake) Hosokura; grandchildren, Alexis, Joanna, Marcus, Lydia, Fio, Gram and future granddaughter Holley (due December 13th, 2014); sister, Jan Feely, many loving friends and family.
Linda was a great lover of people and the world we live in. She made instant friends with all, and maintained friendships over decades and across oceans. Everyone who knew her knew love, compassion, curiosity, openness, generosity and faith. In her life and in her death, she always sought the positive and put full faith in God’s plan. She is an inspiration to us all.
