Linda Benedict of Lakewood, NJ, daughter of Alfred and Wanda
Benedict, died of coronavirus at age 63 on May 6, 2020. Linda had a
wonderful girlhood under the gentle guidance of Our Lady of Victories
Roman Catholic Church and the Jersey City Public School System on
her kids-friendly block of Grant Avenue.
Linda was stricken with schizophrenia in her late teens, but had a
remarkable ability to overcome obstacles and experience the joy in
life. She was an active participant in Preferred Behavioral Health of
Ocean County, where Linda was well-known for her loving
enthusiastic manner and ready smile.
Linda is survived by her brothers Robert and Donald Benedict, her
sister Arlene Shenko, and her niece Tara Rodgers who deeply
appreciate the dedicated social and health care workers who touched
Linda’s life for decades.
