On November 22, 2021, in the year of our Lord, the loving arms of Jesus tenderly grabbed hold of Linda Scoppettone Knodel and brought her safely home.
A memorial service will be held at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday, May7, 2022 at Cedar Hills Church.
She always knew eventually, He would be coming for her and she also knew that she would rejoice at the sight of His glory. As the last seconds approached before she flew away, a smile crossed her mouth and a hearty laugh left her lips.
Her sense of humor will surely follow her to Heaven since she was positive that God must have a great sense of humor to have brought her into the world. He gave her much to be joyful about: a wonderful and loving husband, Ronald; two caring and generous daughters Sydel (Jeremy) McKim and Sally (Mike) Ahmer; ten beautiful grandchildren, Cooper, Camden, Bailey, Brooks, Hunter, Sam, Will, Sage, Jaxon and Carmen; brothers James (Sherri) and Dick (Mimi) Scoppettone; and her sister Anita (Dan) Rice. She was preceded in death by her parents James and Dina Scoppettone, son-in-law Scott Spalding and nephew Dino Scoppettone. More loving family members than most people could only dream about. With great delight, she in turn, marveled at the grace and blessings He provided.
The Lord was her companion and her years were filled with conversation with Him, some words from a sorrowful heart, some words asking for forgiveness, and most words were of thanksgiving. He taught her she would never be bored; and right until her death, her love of the sick and dying kept her busy as the neighborhood nurse. She never ceased to be amazed at people’s capacity for love, courage and endurance.
Her motto, “So much to do, so little time” was very fitting.
She lived life to the fullest and tried never to look back – at least not too far back. Upon entering the pearly gates, she most certainly will be given the job as head of the welcoming committee to all who enter. Many parties will be held in someone’s honor or for no reason at all and she will take great delight in the planning of these events. Most certainly there will be an “eternal buffet” filled with the best of foods from the garden of Eden.
All of her days in eternity will be spent basking in His light and His love. He gave her the gift of love and she used it wisely. She gave her family life and love and her most precious gift to them was her love of God, a gift that she generously shared.
She’s gone from our sight…but in His sight she will always remain.
