We mournfully announce the passing of Linda Althouse, 70, a lifelong resident of Sharon Hill, PA until recently when she moved to Swarthmore, PA. Linda passed away suddenly yet peacefully at home on Saturday January 15, 2022. Linda, born to loving parents Ralph & Jean Althouse, took her first breath on April 1, 1951. Linda was a force to be reckoned with from start, graduating from Sharon Hill High School in 1969 and pursuing a career in accounting and transportation all while being a dedicated and devoted single mother to her only daughter Denise.
Linda is survived by her loving daughter Denise (Althouse) Romano (John), also survived by siblings Paul Althouse (Pat), Stephen Althouse (Irene), Lisa (Althouse) Spillar (Jack), her adoring grandchildren Nicholas and Gianna Romano, along with nieces and nephews, Jeffrey Althouse, Steven Althouse, Stephanie Klotz (Althouse), Elizabeth Althouse, Ryan Althouse, Jaclyn Spillar, Jessica Prince (Spillar), and Michael Spillar.
While Linda never married, she lived a full and vibrant life with more family and friends than you could count. Linda’s family and friends meant more to her than words can describe. When Linda retired, she devoted most of her time to taking care of her grandchildren and exploring her love of travel. We will miss her dearly.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend her Memorial on Saturday February 5, 2022 from 10am-11am. Service will follow immediately at 11:00am at the Griffith Funeral Chapel 520 Chester Pike Norwood, PA 19074. Interment private.
