Linda K. Holland
EAST BANGOR
Linda K. Holland, 73, of East Bangor, PA passed away Thursday, June 25th, at her residence.
Linda was born in Pen Argyl, PA on July 4, 1946, a daughter of the late Woodrow Bussenger, Sr. and Grace (Sylvester) Bussenger.
She was the wife of Franklin G. Holland. They celebrated their 52nd wedding anniversary last November. She was a 1964 graduate of Bangor High School. Linda was employed as a guidance secretary for the Bangor Area School District in Upper Mt. Bethel Twp., PA, until retiring in 1997. She was active with the Bangor football and basketball booster clubs and enjoyed spending time with her family and following her children's and great grandchildren's sporting events. Following them in their extra-curricular and athletic endeavors brought her endless joy, and they were the light of her life.
In addition to her loving husband Franklin, Linda is survived by two sons, Bron Holland, husband of Kerry, and Brock Holland, husband of Amy; three sisters, Carol Jones, Shelly Lake, and Ruth Mory, and seven grandchildren, Colton, Ben, Kaylee, Brynn, Logan, McKenzie, and Delaney. She was predeceased by a brother, Woodrow Bussenger, Jr.

Met Linda at a previous Class Reunion and we just hit it off. I didn't know many people and just sat with her . She said I was her new best friend. I wish I had know her longer and had tea or something with her. It was Joe's class reunion . That Friday we had a welcome night at the VFW and just happened to sit with her. We will remember her in our prayers. Peace be with all of you and Linda. My name is Linda.

Frank, Bron, Brock and families, Extending our heartfelt sympathy in your loss. So so many good and happy memories of Linda. She and I were teammates back in the day at good old BHS, and then our sons Brent and Bron were teammates. We liked to think that they got their talent from their mothers, but I'm sure Frank (also my classmate) would have some say in that statement. Many good times through out the years with the Hollands. May she rest in peace. Sincerely,
