Obituary for Linda Ragusa (Jones)

Linda  Ragusa (Jones)
Linda A. Ragusa – 1964 - 2017
Whitesboro, NY

Mrs. Linda A. Ragusa, age 52, of Whitesboro, NY passed away after a long illness with her family at her side on Friday, October 27, 2017 at Albany Medical Center.
Born in Utica, she was the daughter of the late Merrill and Joan (Wheeler) Jones. She graduated from Frankfort High School and later BOCES where she earned a nursing degree. On July 7, 2006 in New Hartford, she was wed to Steven A. Ragusa; the couple shared in a union that was blessed with over eleven years of marriage. Lind was employed for several years as an LPN with the Folts Home in Herkimer, and was a member of the Loyal Order of Moose in Ilion.
Linda was a kind compassionate person who always put the needs of others before her own; she was always willing to help anyone in need. Her profession as an LPN was fitting to her nurturing personality; she enjoyed being a caregiver to the elderly attending not only to their physical needs but their emotional needs as well.
She is survived by her husband; Steven; her mother-in-law, Dianne Ragusa of Whitesboro, who she affectionately referred to as her “neighbor lady”; a sister, Marilyn Daum of Deerfield; and a brother, Arthur Jones of Frankfort. Also surviving are several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, especially acknowledging, Michael Jones, great nieces, great nephews, cousins; and her in-laws, Paul and Esther Ragusa of North Utica. She also leaves her canine “babies” “Butch” and “Minnie”. Linda was predeceased by a brother, Merrill “Cappy” Jones.
In keeping with Linda’s wishes there will be no public visitation. Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend Linda’s funeral service and celebration of life which will be held on Saturday morning at 10:30 at St. Joseph & St. Patrick Church, 702 Columbia Street, Utica, NY 13502 where her mass of Christian Burial will be offered. The family will receive visitors in church immediately following the funeral service. Interment will follow in Frankfort Center Cemetery on Mucky Run Road in Frankfort. Arrangements have been entrusted to the Smith Funeral Home, 3022 Oneida Street, Sauquoit, NY 13456.
Linda's family would like to extend their sincere thanks to Michelle, Linda’s special friend and caregiver for the kindness, compassion, and friendship that she shared with Linda throughout her illness.
