Linda Byers Obituary

Linda Susan Byers, 69, of Johnstown, passed away peacefully on Sunday, March 3rd, 2024, surrounded by loved ones. 

Born on December 1st, 1954, in Glens Falls, Linda was the daughter of the late William H. and Mary (Maloney) Byers.

Linda’s greatest joy was being a mother, and she was amazing at it. Her love knew no bounds, and she was always there to offer unwavering support and encouragement. Linda had an extraordinary gift for lifting others up, and her children were her greatest source of pride. She cheered them on through every milestone, celebrating their successes and comforting them through their challenges. Linda's nurturing spirit and endless love created a home filled with warmth and acceptance, where her children (and others) always felt safe and loved.

In addition to her role as a loving mother, Linda had a long and fulfilling career as a laboratory technologist at New York Oncology Hematology, where she dedicated herself to caring for cancer patients in need. She was passionate and proud about her work, finding happiness in helping and supporting others during their most challenging times. After her retirement, she spent most of her time at camp with friends, family and her cherished canine companion, Otis. She then enjoyed traveling to Florida with her partner John and Otis for warmth during winter months.

Linda lived a vibrant life filled with love, laughter, and unforgettable memories. Her passion for the outdoors was evident in her love for camping and sitting by the campfire, where she created countless cherished moments with her family and friends. She was well known for throwing unforgettable parties and was renowned for her exceptional cooking skills, often preparing meals fit for an army. Above all, her happiness came from spending time with her beloved friends and family, who meant the world to her.

Besides her parents, Linda was predeceased by her brother, Arthur Byers, and her sisters, Noele Harvey, Judith Thomas, Colleen Turner, and Mary Lou (Meme) Catalfamo. It is noted that Linda passed away on her older sister’s (Mary Lou) birthday, and it is believed by her family that they wanted to celebrate together!

Linda is survived by her loving partner, John Aesche Sr., her beloved children: Mary Elizabeth Snell, William Dee, Amanda (Tyrese) Peace, Kayla Houle, Samantha Valentine and many grandchildren that loved her dearly. Her siblings: Ann (Donald) Roche, Carol (Jim) Barber; her brothers-in-law Nicholas Catalfamo, Sr., Larry Turner; her sister-in-law Sandy Byers; many nieces, nephews, and cousins; several lifelong good friends.

The family extends heartfelt appreciation to Mary's partner, Jacob Rasmussen, who went above and beyond in helping with the care of Linda during her final months, ensuring she was not only comfortable, but most importantly, always laughing and smiling. 

Linda will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Her warm smile, generous heart, contagious laughter, and zest for life will forever be remembered and cherished.

A celebration of Linda's life will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in honor of Linda's memory.
