On Tuesday, March 4, 2014 age 63 of Oakmont. Beloved wife of David Francis McLaughlin. Loving mother of John Clay Elliott Johnson (Tzu-Yu Hu), Benjamin Daughtry Johnson (Anastasia), Erin Caitlin McLaughlin and Garrett Tavis McLaughlin. Dear sister of Carolyn Seletzky, Rebecca Heckman (Tom Peterson), and James Heckman (Kathy). Linda never hesitated to speak up, sing, dance, or give of herself for others. A Master of Social Work, focusing her practice on trauma therapy, her "total living courageously approach" was more than a philosophy; it was a way of life that all who met her experienced: honesty, compassion, and love. She is remembered by family, friends, and clients, grateful for the time they shared and joy she brought into the world. Friends will be received Sunday, March 9, 2014 from 5:30-7:30PM in the Allegheny Unitarian Universalist Church where a memorial service will be held 11AM Monday.
