Born on February 24, 1952, in Allentown, PA, Linda was the daughter of Cleave and M. Betty Jane (Peters) Yeahl. She was a 1972 graduate of Allen High School, in Allentown. After graduating, Linda earned a bachelor’s degree from Kutztown University and later finished coursework at SUNY New Paltz.

After retiring, she relocated to the Norwich area where she and her husband built a home in South Plymouth.

She led the youth and children education and related activities, was on the deacon’s committee, sang in the choir, and organized the church’s annual Thanksgiving turkey giveaway event. She was also a Chenango Hospice volunteer, as well as a volunteer at the Northeast Classic Car Museum. Outside of all these activities, Linda enjoyed sewing and bowling.

On June 15, 1974, in Allentown, Linda married her beloved husband, Robert K. Oehme, who survives. Linda is also survived by her mother, M. Betty Jane Yeahl, of Norwich; children, Jennifer Mallozzi, and her husband, Christopher, of Norwich, and Jessica Posner, and her husband, Justin, of Ellenville; and granddaughter, Melodie Posner.
