Linda was born in Buffalo on December 14, 1942, a daughter of the late Edmund and Irene (Lamka) Kozak.

Working as an administrative assistant for many years at the Luster Law Firm, Linda continued with Martin Luster as his administrative assistant in his NYS Assembly office in Ithaca and she continued as administrative assistant for 6 years for Assemblywoman, Barbara Lifton.
Following her retirement, Linda volunteered in Trumansburg at the Gemm Shop and Trumansburg Food Pantry.

In her quiet time she enjoyed reading, crossword puzzles and watching Hallmark movies at Christmas time (her favorite holiday).
Linda is survived by three sons, Scott (Melanie), David, and Michael Andrew; five grandchildren, Ryan, Stephanie, Caleb, Mary Elizabeth, and Zachary Andrew, and step grandchild, Alexandria Thompson; and a sister, Brenda (John) Olshan and several nieces and nephews.
