Linda Sue (Bish) Richardson, 66, of Ickesburg, a village in Perry County Pennsylvania, died Wednesday, Feb. 20, 2020, in Mechanicsburg, at West Shore Hospital surrounded by family and love.

Linda was born June 16, 1954, in Punxsutawney, to Merle and Jane (Copenhaver) Bish. She was their fourth of five children. Linda grew up in Dayton, and attended Bellwood Antis High School in Bellwood.

She was a homemaker and raised five children in central Pennsylvania. A humble, prayerful and kind woman, Linda's priority in life was always her family whom she loved deeply and gave everything she had to provide for.

Linda was preceded in death by her father, mother, and a brother, Thomas Lee Bish.
