Linda J. Owens

Linda J. (Zuffoletti) Owens passed peacefully into heaven on Sunday, August 11, 2019 after a brief illness. Born December 1, 1945 to the late Anthony and Ida (Defonzo) Zuffoletti, Linda grew up in East Providence and graduated class of ’63 from EPHS.

Linda’s gifts of generosity, kindness, and compassion were always abundant as she served as a personal care giver at Blackstone Valley Arc. Blessed with a green thumb, Linda loved gardening, feeding birds and nature in general. Linda never missed a birthday or opportunity to shower her love on her children as well as her family and friends. If you knew Linda, you knew her to be one of the most generous and selfless souls God ever blessed this world with. 

Linda, AKA ‘Dear Old Mom’ has always been SO proud of her children; Douglas W. Owens, Jr. wife Abra, of Swansea, and Dawn M. Motyka, husband Christopher, of North Providence. Linda was the blessed Grandmother of Rachael Corchado & Noah Lussier and the Great-grandmother of Adrian & Averie Corchado. Linda is survived by her beloved sister Leah Silva, husband Gerald, of East Providence, as well as bothers/sisters in law and many nieces and nephews. In her retirement Linda enjoyed time spent with her dear friend Nancy Blais.  Services for Linda will be private. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hope Hospice, 1085 North Main Street, Providence, RI 02904.
