She was the beloved wife of Louis Fronduto, daughter of Virginia (Dalton) Adreani and the late William Adreani, and a cherished sister to Cheryl DiPietro and William Adreani Jr.
Linda's life was one filled with love, laughter, and an unwavering dedication to her family. She was a doting mother to her children, Susan Fronduto and her partner Lester Baker, and Michael Fronduto and his wife, Ashley. Her role as a grandmother was one of her most cherished, as she adored her grandchildren, Gabriella Celona, Alexandra Celona, Guilianna Celona, Mia Fronduto, Niko Fronduto, Michael Fronduto Jr., Liliana Fronduto, and Luca Fronduto. To them, she was simply "Nana," a source of boundless affection and wisdom.
Professionally, Linda was a hairdresser instructor at the NorthEast Vocational School, where her passion for the beauty industry shone through in her teaching.

She cherished the moments spent with her loved ones, and her grandchildren held a special place in her heart. They were the lights of her life, and she treasured every moment she spent with them.
Linda's zest for life extended beyond her love for her family and her career. She was known for her vibrant social life, as she cherished spending time with her friends. Whether it was an evening out on the town, a gathering at home, or a night of dancing, Linda's company was always a delight. Her friends could always count on her to add a touch of fun and laughter to any gathering.
One of Linda's favorite pastimes was embarking on cruises, where she could explore new destinations and experience the world's beauty and culture. These adventures allowed her to create lasting memories with her loved ones, and she reveled in the excitement of new experiences, beautiful sights, and the joy of travel.
Linda's passion for exploration and her adventurous spirit were a testament to her love of life and her desire to make the most of every moment. Her fondness for cruises and her vibrant social life enriched her world and brought happiness to all those fortunate enough to share in these experiences with her.
