On Wednesday, December 8th, 2021, Linda Lee (Mullen) Cepelak passed away at the age of 74, after her courageous battle with cancer.
She will lovingly be remembered by her husband of 49 years, Justin; children: Brian (Tracy), Gavin (Raquel) and Kevin (Elizabeth); grandchildren: Kaitlin, Lauren, Zev, Cai, Owen and William; sister, Jackie Schofield; as well as other family members and numerous friends.
Linda was the supreme example of unconditional love. As a kindergarten teacher for over 25 years at Oakwood Elementary School, she undoubtedly inspired hundreds of children over her tenure. Linda was always giving back to others; whether it was fundraising for children in Morocco, supporting at her sons many sporting events during their childhood, or giving her family and friends a shoulder to cry on. She was an avid traveler, a doting grandmother and a devoted friend. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to send a special thank you to the staff at Memorial Sloan Kettering and Momentum at South Bay Rehabilitation and Nursing for their care and compassion.
