Luisa and I offer all the family our sincere condolences and sympathies. Watching Tia dancing at Julie's wedding made me envious of her energy. She's walking with Jesus now and cooking for angels.

We miss you already, TT, but know that you are with Tio, Aunt Mary and Uncle Joe. They are all up there together eating the world's best rice pudding.

So many memories of a childhood enriched by the frequent visits with Tia Linda. From that time to the last occasion I had the privilege of dancing with her at her grand daughters wedding, Tia Linda projected an overwhelming positivity and truly caring and spiritual soul. My deepest sympathies to all who are experiencing this loss.

We will miss having dinners with Linda and her daughter Louisa and son in law Malcolm whenever she came to Dover. She looked forward to Judi slipping chocolates to her.
1921 - 2017
Linda joins her husband Joseph in heaven at the age of 95. She was born in Solvay, NY to Joseph and Maria Lopes. At the age of 4, her father died in a work related accident. Linda’s mother and her 2 siblings were forced to return to Portugal. She returned to America at the age of 17, working in NYC, Baltimore, and then Chester aided by caring relatives. In 1942, she married Joseph Domingos who then was drafted in to the Army in 1943.
Upon his discharge in 1946, they settled in Linwood where she raised her family. Linda was a beloved member of the Portuguese-American community known for her great meals, picnics, and her tremendous charity to her relatives.
For years, she cooked lunch for the Holy Saviour nuns and was a lifelong member of the church. Linda had a strong network of friends that she met through the Lower Chi Senior Citizens group.
In 1951, she took her kids (Louise and Frank) back to Portugal for a 3 month visit. She saw her mother for the first time in 13 years. Linda was a very social, charitable, kind to all people, and energetic. This energy and love of life she kept almost up to her passing.
Linda was predeceased by her parents, her loving husband Joseph and her siblings – Joseph, Maria, and Augusto.
She will be remembered and missed with great love by her children Frank (Jan), Luisa (Malcolm) Long and her Grandchildren, Susan, Joe, Julie (Michael) Flannery, Lisa Carroll, as well as her extended family and friends.
