Linda J. Fox

May 17, 1940 ~ June 9, 2018 (age 78)

Linda J. Peters Fox, of Maytown PA died June 9th, 2018 after a long battle with Alzheimer’s.

She was born in Lancaster PA on May 17th, 1940, the daughter of the late Charles Raymond and Dorothy May Peters.

She was a graduate of McCaskey High School in 1958 and Coatesville Nursing School in 1961.

Linda was a registered nurse at Lancaster General Hospital 1961-1963 and at Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center 1976-2002 (retired). She was most proud of working as a circulating and operating room scrub nurse for challenging neurology and cardiology operations. She treasured her friendships with her co-workers and was a member of the “Butt” club. She enjoyed the cruises they went on together and the fun Bunco games they got together to play every month.

Linda was the kind of person who treated everyone like they were a life-long friend. She was the life of the party, enjoying loud laughter and brought fun to everyone’s life she touched.

Her hobbies included stained glass, knitting, collecting antique dollhouse furniture for her antique dollhouse and redecorating rooms in her house with her favorite color purple. She was the only person in the neighborhood with a purple bathtub!

It is this uniqueness that captures her spirit.

Linda was preceeded in death by her mother and father, and brother Charles Robert Peters. Surviving relatives include her daughter Holly Gerhard (husband Randall) Mt Horeb WI, daughter Jennifer Fox, Elkton, MD, daughter Heather Woodward (husband Darrel) Carlisle PA, grandsons Ian and Zachary Woodward, Carlisle PA, sister in-law Joyce Kay Peters and nieces Doreen Peters and Julie Garcia (husband Jim) and her close friend and former husband Max Fox.

Linda had many nicknames Lolly, Lala, Foxy, Mom and the most fitting was Loveable.

Loveable Linda filled her friends and family's lives with love, laughter and lavender.
