Linda Rita Rosetti, born in Philadelphia on September 28, 1951, to Carmen Marie Salvatico and Henry Rosetti, passed away on January 10 of complications from ALS.
At age 9 her whole family abandoned Pennsylvania and headed to California, taking up residence in West Hollywood. Linda would graduate from Fairfax High School, enjoying the ’60s as a hippy in Hollywood, only to go on to UCLA and after years of bookkeeping in the family businesses of construction, furniture and clothing design, would obtain a master’s degree in family therapy. There she found her true calling, and as a caring and loving person, she dedicated her life to helping other people.
Linda was a 27-year resident of Pacific Palisades, active in the Palisades Garden Club and Self-Realization Fellowship, and was a common sight walking her beloved black labs, Wilson and Pearl.
She is predeceased by brothers Henry and Bobby, and survived by her loving son, Dr. Nicholas Jonas, his wife Amanda, her granddaughter Amelia, and brothers Gennaro Rosetti and Fred Piccone.
The only thing Linda loved more than cooking and feeding us her fabulous Italian foods was Amelia, the light of her life. She, and her magical Philadelphia Sticky Buns, will be terribly missed.
Services are scheduled for 12 p.m., January 26 at Holy Cross Cemetery with a reception to follow at the home of Gennaro and Maria Rosetti.
