"Hello this is Linda, how may I help you?" I heard this response over and over whether Linda was answering a call from staff, from the community, a family or an administrator. She made good on her offer to help time and time again. Despite her failing health and daily struggle, she came to work in good spirits and never complained. She also never burdened her staff with requests for help- not even to open the door for her or escort her to her office (we would do it anyways!) She was a supervisor that I know really cared for and loved her staff and made it a point to share her sincere appreciation to us on a regular basis. I miss Linda so very much. I send prayers for strength to her family and friends.

My heart has been so heavy but today seeing the tributes from Lee and your amazing children lightened me a bit. Linda has been my supervisor, confidante and GoTo person at HBH for 5 years. She was always there for her staff and our patients. If you needed to share personal information with her you could be sure it would stay with her. There will never be another like her. My prayers to her parents from whom she inherited such grace and faith. I know she is an angel watching over us. For me I know my life was enriched by knowing her. Bless you all!

Our hearts are heavy with the passing of our dear friend Linda Ellis

We sent our beloved Lauren from Texas to Pennsylvania, to go to school. There she met Jenna and Jenna took her home.

She fell into the embrace of a wonderful angel, Linda . She allowed Lauren to share her home and spent a lot of effort caring for our Lauren and we are forever grateful and heart broken.

May the Lord above bring peace to the soul of Linda Ellis and grand her speedy access to the eternal life of heavens splendor. We are forever grateful to have been blessed with knowing Linda.

May the hearts of her children and family find the healing to keep their mother’s spirit alive in their minds and souls and may everyone who knew her never forget that a family in Texas was blessed by her.

It is our faith that lights candles, uses the rosary and prays through Jesus name.

We love Linda Ellis. Stephen, Lisa & Cheyenne Sienna and Lauren Valdez from San Antonio Texas

My name is Heather Gaal and I had only briefly known Linda at Heartland through my position as a counselor. I want to express my sincere condolences to your family and know that I have held all of you in my prayers. Even though I had only known Linda a short time, it did not take but a few days to realize what a kind, caring, and compassionate person she was and the ways in which she not only took care of her patients but also of her employees. It takes a very selfless person to work in the social work field and to rise to the levels that Linda did and she will be very missed by all who knew her.
