Linda Mastalli

Linda Lawrence Mastalli, 73 went home to be with the Lord after a long battle with Alzheimer’s disease. Linda is joining her parents, Merrick and Gertrude Lawrence, her brother Leigh Lawrence, and several beloved aunts and uncles. She leaves behind a loving family who adored her, including former husband, Fred Mastalli & wife Pat; son, Brett Mastalli & wife Caryn; daughter, Tara Pioth & husband Bruce; grandchildren Jillian, Caroline, Alison & Grant; and sisters-in-law Jane Lawrence and Grace Mastalli.

In life Linda loved and always put her family first. A nutritionist at heart, she created all meals from scratch and could make a gourmet dinner without a cookbook or recipe in sight. Linda was gentle spirited and loved all God’s creatures. A true passion for animals, she rescued dozens of dogs, cats, squirrels, birds, and even a moth that was clinging to fly paper. Her heart was pure. A gifted artist, she was most known for her animal and nature rock painting.

In her earlier life, Linda found the greatest enjoyment spending time with her beloved aunts & uncles. She was especially close to Uncle Val and Uncle Harold and delighted in them and their children. Cousin “Kath” was one of her dearest friends as well as cousin, Cheryl.

With her son, Brett, she shared a love of music and recently listened to Van Halen together. Even in her last days she responded to music. She loved to read. Her favorite book, The Gift from the Sea, was a treasure to her. Her daughter most fondly remembers their mother-daughter trips they took together and how a cup of hot tea with Mom makes everything better.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Foundation or your local SPCA.

    Sweet Tara, I remember early in our friendship, having your parents over for dinner. Your mom was so peaceful and seemed to just enjoy having her daughter and husband near. I have loved seeing your devotion to your mom and have hurt knowing how much you missed your talks. I wish that I got to know a little bit more of her. May Gods love envelope you during this finish stage of grief. I love you beautiful friend!

    Linda was such a sweet, gentle soul. The few times I visited from Miami she welcomed me with her sweet smile. I remember her love of icee cream and garage sales, and have a small painted rock she gave me. She must be rejoicing in heaven with her dear family who parted before her. My condolences to Fred and family.

    I met Linda many years ago when we lived in New York State. Our children were of similar ages so we did lots of things together. I remained friends with her over the years. Lots of fond memories. A special lady who will be missed. Sending condolences to her wonderful family.

    Save the homeless animals from your new place in Heaven, Lin. Send a random laugh when you can. Til I see you again, hug all the family for me. Much love, Cheryl & Family xoxo
