Linda K. Schultz

Linda K. (Taylor) Schultz, 78, passed away peacefully in her home on April 8, 2023 while making her sons’ favorite Easter dishes. She was born October 18, 1944 in Canonsburg to Lloyd and Dorothy Taylor. After losing her father when she was young, she took on a lot of responsibility for their household as her mother had to go to work outside of the home. A 1962 graduate of Canon McMillan High School, she went on to Pittsburgh Beauty Academy in Washington, PA and ran a successful hair salon in her home for decades after her early years when she would practice on her friends, carrying a hair dryer in the back seat of her Volkswagen. Never one to shy away from hard work, Linda worked at Joe Rotello’s Beauty Shop, and she was a seamstress at Bobbie Brooks in her early years. On August 26, 1967 she married Edward L. Schultz at Hill Church in Canonsburg and continued in her natural entrepreneurial spirit, owning a store in Scenery Hill and dry-cleaning business in Fredericktown while also playing an instrumental role in her husband’s business endeavors. They enjoyed 46 years of marriage together and raised two sons, Edward W. Schultz, and Jason L. (Robyn) Schultz. She was a dedicated mother to her two sons and a devoted grandmother to her granddaughter, Lilly, and later to her step-grandchildren, Noah, Mary, and Felicity.

Her passions included travelling, helping others, camping with all of her friends, and her lunch dates with the “Lindas.” She was a member of the National Trail Business and Professional Women’s Association, the Eastern Star, the Red Hat Society, and a long-time member of the Bethlehem Evangelical Lutheran Church in Glyde. In 2022, she was named by the Bentleyville Public Library as Citizen of the Year, acknowledging a lifetime of dedication to her community. She will be remembered for her tenacity, her zest for life, her generosity of spirit, her sense of humor, and her dedication to family and friends.

Surviving in addition to her sons and grandchildren are two brothers Ray Taylor (Angela) of Prospect, KY, and George Taylor (Sandy) of McDonald, PA; several nieces and nephews; many close and loving friends.

Deceased in addition to her parents is her husband Edward L. Schultz who died January 21, 2014.

Friends will be received Thursday, April, 13 and Friday, April 14, 2023 from 2 to 7 PM in the John B. Greenlee Funeral Home, Ltd., 2830 Main St. Beallsville, PA 15313.
