LINDA C. LEWANDOWSKI (nee Carroll), aged 80, went to heaven Sunday, February 20, 2022. She is survived by her loving husband of 36 years, Robert J. Lewandowski; her children, Frank V. (Tracy) Razinger, Anita (Mark) Lenihan, Kathleen (Jim) Dean; step-children, Sister Mary Francis Lewandowski, Bishop Bruce Lewandowski, Paula (Jim) Chupp, and Joseph Lewandowski; grandchildren, Max, Samantha Jo and Spence Razinger, Darby and Caitlin Lenihan, James Dean, Nathan (Angela) Dubbert and Jacob Dubbert, Hannah, Hildi and Heidi Lewandowski; great grandchildren, Raelynn and Riley Dubbert. Linda loved nature, whether she was outside tending to her beautiful flower gardens or viewing God’s many creatures. A fervent animal lover, Linda adopted many a stray cat, and wanted to live in the country surrounded by trees so that she could window watch chipmunks, birds, bunnies, groundhogs, raccoons and the occasional fox. She especially loved our National Parks and was able to visit her favorite Grand Teton National Park in 2019. Linda and Bob had planned to travel extensively in their RV and were planning to winter in Florida. She was an incredible artist who adopted traditional toll painting for several years, painted murals in her workplace and home and built and decorated her lovely home in Auburn Township with husband Bob. Known as “Nannie” to her grandchildren, Linda loved visiting her family, spending her holidays between where her family lived and was always there to lend a hand to her family visiting. She especially loved to help her daughter Anita and husband Mark Lenihan with their exotic animal business in Pipe Creek, TX and was able to be there to visit one last time for Christmas 2021 before illness necessitated a return home to Ohio. Linda passed peacefully in her sleep cared for by loved ones and her loving husband Bob. Family will receive friends from 10:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m., Friday, February 25 at CHURCH OF THE HOLY ANGELS, 18205 CHILLICOTHE ROAD (Rt. 306), CHAGRIN FALLS. Mass of Christian Burial at 11 a.m. Cremation to follow. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations be made to Rescue Village to continue Linda’s passion for helping animals (https://give.rescuevillage.org).
