Linda L. Resh, 68, of Grantsville, died Wednesday, Nov. 15, 2017, at the Western Maryland Regional Medical Center, after a courageous battle with liver cancer.
Born April 7, 1949, in Meyersdale, Pa., she was the daughter of the late Clark and Duella (Broadwater) Resh. She was also preceded in death by one brother, Charles Resh in 2013.
Linda was a beautician, having worked for 35 years at Betty Jo's Beauty Lounge. She graduated from Tri-State Beauty School, Cumberland. She had worked briefly at Flushing Shirt Factory prior to entering beauty school. Linda was an active member of Jennings United Methodist Church, where she served as lay speaker, sunday school teacher, and on numerous committees, and as a child, she always looked forward to bible school and attended many. She loved her work, including her employer and through the years her customers became her friends and she treated them like family. Linda showed her dedication by working up to a few days before her death.
She is survived by one brother, Morris Resh and wife, Nancy, Grantsville, and a number of cousins and special friends.
Everyone who knew Linda will miss her bubbly personality and laugh. No one was a stranger to her.
The family would like to thank Betty Jo Swauger, Skip and Shirley Lapp, Dr. Paul Thuluvath and Dr. Nii Lante Lamptey-Mills for their passionate care and support during her illness.
