  • David Lutz Jr

    My deepest condolences to the Joa family. I had the privilege of working with Linda for the past 20 years. I always admired her for her kindness, integrity, commitment, and faith. She lived a noble and fulfilling life and I will greatly miss her and our conversations.

  • Ed and Mary Bowman

    A beautiful life has left us and her presence on Earth will be missed. May her fierce love give you comfort at this time.

  • Annette Hermetz

    Thoughts, prayers and condolences for all of the family. In 1992, I met Linda at Northview Animal Hospital. I had just come off the trail and a 2 year sabbatical, not the best dressed for an interview. Linda hired me to hear “the rest of the story”! I am always grateful that she looked beyond my attire, whereby I spent 23 years at Northview and a long friendship.

  • Mark, Erin, Katie, Allie, James Mayer

    We love Mrs. Joa very much. What a wonderful lady…and nobody cared more about family than her. We would be in our van heading to Pittsburgh in a heartbeat if normal times, but will pray as a family and remember her together. She will live on in her amazing family and in our memories. Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her.

  • Joyce Rabovsky

    Julie and family,
    I am very sorry to hear of Linda’s passing. She was always kind and smiling when I would see her at Gardens. Sending prayers for peace and healing at this difficult time.
