Linda joined First U in October 2010 when she moved to Pennsylvania to get ready for retirement in March 2012. She has been a UU for over 25 years, and was a member at UUFN (Newark) for several years. She has attended SUUSI and Womenspirit and served in leadership positions for both organizations. Raised in the Seventh Day Adventist faith, she has found a faith community in Unitarian Universalism that captures her spirit and her intellect and supports her continuing quest for meaning using many different belief traditions. Goddess spirituality, paganism, WICCA, Buddhism, meditation and metaphysics are a few spiritual paths that have nurtured her growth over the years. Her daughter, Jessica, and son-in-law, Mike Conlan, were married by Rev. Barbara Gadon on New Year’s Eve in 2010.
