Born in Scranton, daughter of the late William and Venna Parker Sylvester, she was a graduate of Carbondale Area High School. Before her illness, she was employed as a baker for Walmart in Dickson City.

She enjoyed baking, sewing, swimming, all kinds of outdoor activities and spending time with her children, grandkids, family and friends. She was a fun-loving, strong and positive person, who would always put others ahead of herself and will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her.

She is survived by three sons, Raymond Eakle III of Throop; Kevin Eakle and wife, Noel Clark, of Throop; and William Eakle and fiancée, Jaime Schoonmaker, of Scranton; three daughters, Isadora and husband, Greg VanWyckhouse, of Hawley; Linda and husband, Paul Harris, of Brandon, Florida; and Jaime Oliver and fiancé, Michael Morris, of Asheboro, North Carolina; a brother, Ronald Morris of Carbondale; 21 grandkids; five great-grandkids; and several cousins, nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving sister and childhood best friend, Helen Davis, of Carbondale; and other family members and close friends.

A celebration of her life service will be announced at a later date. There are no funeral home calling hours.

My condolences to all of Linda´s loved ones. I only met her once and thought she was a sweet lady. She did a great job raising my daughter-in-law, Linda. May she rest peacefully in her eternal life.
