CLEARWATER, FL Linda S. Emili, 69, of Clearwater, Fl, formerly of Pen Argyl, Pa, passed away, Tuesday, October 5, 2021, at St. Petersburg General Hospital, St. Petersburg, Fl. Linda was born on October 16, 1951, in Easton, Pa to Assunta (Marr) Gellock and the late Carmen Cuono. She was a 1969 graduate of Pen Argyl High School, and went on to study at Empire Beauty School of Easton. She also studied Business Management at Reading Area Community College. Prior to her retirement, Linda was the owner/hairstylist at The Ultimate Cut in Pen Argyl, Pa, and taught cosmetology at the Career Institute of Technology in Easton, Pa.
