Linda was my daughter Lindsay's teacher for 2 years (her last 2 before she retired). Lindsay LOVED her and I know she cared deeply for Lindsay too. She was a special lady. We have been praying for her and you. She will be missed.

Jengo Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. She reached out to our shy and nervous daughter and helped her feel special. Linda had a way about her that will always be remembered! The countless extra thoughtful details she included in her classroom environment and curriculum touched the lives of many.

Dear Peter and Family,

Our deepest sympathy on your loss and may God comfort you all during this most difficult time in your lives.

I know my cousin is dancing with the angels and probably is getting them together to go skiing. It was always Cousin Linda's favorite past-time to do. I will always treasure my special times with her, and especially at our last reunion. I can picture her laughing and joking about how we were when we were children. How happy she was that we all came together! I will truly miss our chats, but I know deep down she is happy in heaven!

Cousin Linda may you rest in peace!

Our deepest sympathy,
Susan, Robert E. and Robby M. Klipfel

Mrs. Jengo was Rachel's 1st and 2nd grade teacher. We will never forget her smile, encouragement, the energy she posessed. The fact that Rachel loves school is a direct result of the wonderful person she was. The night she came to Rachel's dance recital is still a highlight of Rachel's life. It meant so much that her teacher would come to see her dance.

Our sincerest condolences for your loss,
Laura, Tom and Rachel Weiderman

Dear Peter and Sons,
I was so saddened to hear of Linda's passing. I have been thinking about her so much lately wondering how she was doing in MA. She was the most wonderful friend to me. I was able to travel to Europe with her and then drive to CA and back and we had such great times. I will never forget them. She was so much fun; had such a sense of humor. I send my deepest sympathy to you and know that I will keep you all in thoughts and prayers.
