Her smile was a mile wide. Linda knew what was important in life; love and forgiveness. Earlier years found her at Holy Innocents at St. Pete’s and the Burlington County special services. She competed in the Special Olympics: bowling and walking. Maybe bowling wasn’t her strongest event, but she medaled in walking. Her favorite activities were the Annual Gatti Christmas Parties. She loved to eat at Friendly’s and had a notorious sweet tooth. But more than anything else, Linda just wanted to help people.
She is survived by her mother, Mae Gatti; her siblings Dennis (Trish), Michael (Allysa), Mark (Dee), Janie (Jeff) Schneider, Donna Lawn, Ann, and Terry (Vincent) Seppanen ; many nieces and nephews and her best buddy and God Son, Joey and her sister in law, Debbie. She was pre-deceased by her father, Ralph and her siblings, Tommy and Mary Ellen.
