Linda Gerhard, age 76, of Greenwich, was called to Heaven on Sunday, April 23, 2023 in Lower Alloways Creek at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Douglas Fogg. She passed away peacefully after a long, brave battle with cancer. She was born in Buffalo, New York, where she also attended college and received her associates degree in accounting. Linda was the payroll supervisor for R. E. Pierson Construction for 23 years before her retirement. Linda is predeceased by her parents, Robert and Edith Arnold (House), and by the love of her life, Henry (Skip) Gerhard. Linda enjoyed gardening, her dogs, and loved primitive antiques — her home in Greenwich, NJ was featured on several historic tours and in the nationally-released Fall 2016 issue of “A Primitive Place” magazine. Linda attended Greenwich Presbyterian Church where she was an Elder and a Deaconess. In addition to her daughter and son-in-law, Amy and Doug, Linda is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, Robert and Stephanie Westergren of New Hampshire; and sister, Susan Maus of New Hampshire.
Linda is survived by grandchildren: Ashley (Cerasoli) Lee (Matthew) of Georgia; Korrin Robinson of New Jersey; Reid, Cooper, and Tanner Westergren all of New Hampshire; and two great grandchildren: Adeline and Emma Lee, both of Georgia. She also leaves her dear friend and companion, Jim Storm, with whom she spent many a day enjoying the outdoors and antiquing.
Linda's Celebration of Life Service will be held 2:00 PM, Thursday, May 18, 2023 at WOODSIDE FUNERAL HOME, 613 Salem Quinton Rd., Salem, NJ 08079 (Quinton Twp.) where family and friends may visit from 1:00 to 2:00 PM. Linda's request was, "please wear BRIGHT COLORS, No Black
