Surviving are her 3 wonderful sons: Michael K. Motze, husband of Jeannie, of Mt. Penn; Jeffrey A. Motze, husband of Silvia, of Exeter Twp.; and Kerry S. Motze. She loved her boys; oh my goodness, did she adore her grandkids: Danielle M. Motze, wife of Mike Schnitter, Stephen T., Meghan E., Joey M., Madison T., and Emma J. Motze. Always remember the endless supply of ice cream, the candy fairy and the

octopus hot dogs. Aunt Linda is also survived by many nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews.

I will deeply miss the love of my life. See you soon sweetheart.
