Linda Johnston

August 16, 1947 — August 16, 2020

Linda Jane (Adams) Johnston died Sunday, August 16, 2020 in her home following a recent diagnosis of cancer.  She was exactly 73 years old, celebrating her heavenly and earthly birthday on the same day.  She was born Aug. 16, 1947 in McKeesport, daughter of the late Homer Leroy (Roy) and Thelma Jane Adams.

Linda was the embodiment of grace, always putting the needs of others ahead of her own.  Meeting Linda, you immediately felt at ease in her presence.  She was a loving and kind soul who blessed everyone she touched.

She is survived by her husband of nearly 40 years, Ralph D. Johnston; children Melissa Beavers, Janet Berkhouse, and Dawn Holshue; stepchildren Scott Johnston and Shelly Fiorelli; brothers Homer Adams and Dean Adams; grandchildren Jessica Beavers, Bobby Beavers, Adam Lahlou, Zaki Lahlou, Lacey Fiorelli King, Amanda Fiorelli, Tony Johnston, Michael Johnston, and Zack Johnston; numerous nieces and nephews and a great grandbaby on the way.  In addition to her parents, Linda was preceded in death by her sister, Janet Mackert.

The family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff of Redstone@Home Hospice for their excellent care and concern for Linda during her illness.

Out of respect for and in accordance with her wishes, there will be no viewing at the funeral home and she will be cremated.  A memorial service will be held at Norwin Alliance Church on August 29th at 2pm in her honor and details will be shared on her Facebook page when available.
