Linda Novy


Linda Ann Novy, 60, of Bensenville, formerly of West Dundee, died peacefully in her home on October 3, 2022.
Linda was born in Berwyn on November 14, 1961, to parents Donald and Midge Novy. Linda was great fun to be around and loved to make her friends and family laugh. She was an animal lover and was happiest when surrounded by her family and pets. Linda made friends easily and was loved by all. She was incredibly artistic, and spent many hours painting, sketching, and designing the perfect Halloween costume. Linda was a valued and dedicated employee of Reebie Storage & Moving Company, a lifelong avid Chicago Bears fan, a lover of Country Music and she loved fishing on all lakes, big or small, especially the Northwoods. She was a walking encyclopedia of Movies and loved sharing the plots and stories. Linda’s kind, compassionate and generous soul will be missed by all who knew her.

Linda is survived by her parents, Donald and Midge Novy, her brothers, Jeff (Debra) Novy, and Dave (Carol Danforth-Novy) Novy, her nieces, Jessica (Kevin) Decker, and Tiffany (Matt) Taylor, her great nieces, Karlee, Josslyn, Shelby, and Charlotte, her dearest friends Joby Lucchesi and Teresa Mayorga, and her beloved cats, Cleo and Abigail.
