Linda J. Ochs, 78, of Butler, PA, passed away the afternoon of Thursday, August 27, 2020 at Chicora Medical Center.
Linda was born to Gilbert and Florence Rieger on January 31, 1942. She grew up and went to school in Butler, and continued on to work as a cook at various establishments in and around Butler over the span of 3 decades. She was a talented cook and baker, and always loved sharing her talents with friends and family. Her humor, kindness, and loving spirit were a blessing to anyone she came into contact with. She was never shy about sharing her compassion and sweet, understanding nature with anyone crossing her path.
Linda is survived by her two sons, Greg Ochs of Ohio and David W. Ochs and his wife Susan of Tennessee. She is survived by grandchildren: Gregory Ochs and Amanda Ochs of Ohio and Abbygail, Bennett, and Blaise Ochs of Tennessee. Additionally, she leaves behind her loving sisters-in-laws, Suzie and Eileen Rieger and friends along with her nephew Danny, and niece Nichole whom she always adored.
Linda is preceded in death by her parents and her brothers, Gilbert Rieger, Jr. and James Rieger, whom she deeply cherished. She recently lost her very close, devoted and long-time companion, George Bonnett.
Linda’s family wishes to extend our sincere thanks to the caring nurses and staff at Quality Life Services of Chicora and the local VNA for the very kind and professional support over the past several months.
