Linda was predeceased by her husband John (Jack) E. Haney. Linda and Jack married on October 15, 1961 and were married for 44 years.
Linda, along with Jack and their son Jay, owned and operated Haney’s Auto Shop on Central Avenue in Mechanicville, NY, for over 40 years. Linda’s passion in life was her children and grandchildren. Linda could be seen coaching her girls’ swim teams for many years. Linda stayed active in her children’s lives, and when she was not cooking for her beloved family, coordinating holiday get-togethers, or summer vacations on Cape Cod, she enjoyed evenings reading and relaxing around the family pool. Linda was a generous and thoughtful woman, and a friend to anyone in need, and she will be missed.
