Costello, Linda M. (nee Walker), passed away on Mon. May 6, 2019, with her family by her side. Beloved wife of Frank for 48 years, loving mother of Christina and David (Belinda) and devoted grandmother of Brendan Ratay and Jessica Janos, dear sister of Janis (Ron) Bryant, dear aunt of Kim (Tommy) Duncan, Linda was preceded in death by her parents Burt and Floetta Walker.
Back in the day, Linda taught Ice skating lessons at Steinberg Skating Rink. She loved teaching whether it be figure skating or lessons in life. Later in life Linda spent many years volunteering for the Variety Telethon Children’s Charity. Linda was also an accomplished seamstress and upholsterer. No task was too big. Linda was an amazing, kind, giving soul who would help anyone in need most importantly was her loving husband, 2 kids and special bond with her sister Janis. Linda loved animals including her grand dogs, Lucy, Turbo, Sophie and Sadie. Fishing was also a pastime Linda enjoyed. She often caught the biggest fish.
Linda’s family would like to share something with you that she mustered up the strength to tell them in her final days. She said take care of each other because in the end this is all you got. So Linda’s family is asking in honor of their mother that each of you do the same because in Linda’s end of life all she wanted was togetherness. What a small request for a larger than life women.
The family would like to thank Evelyn’s House BJC Hospice for providing Linda with loving care.
