Armed with the love of her friends and family surrounding her, Linda Susan Christopoulos, 55, of Edgewater, NJ, passed away comfortably and serenely on March 15th, 2019.
Born on May 31st, 1963, Linda grew up in Fairfield, NJ before graduating from Fairfield University in 1985 and embarking on an illustrious financial career, which included positions as Vice President at Deutsche Bank, Executive Director at Morgan Stanley, and most recently as Managing Director at BlackRock. Linda witnessed the collapse of the Twin Towers, and her written account of her flight from Ground Zero will be donated to the 9/11 Museum.

Her nieces and nephews, Corey, Lindsey, and Hailey Ridlon, Shannon and Emily Viola, and Erika and Anthony Coutinho will forever heed their Second Mom’s favorite adage: “Never give up.”
