Linda A. Scalzo Madaras 1962-2019

Linda A. Scalzo Madaras, 56, passed away on April 5, 2019 at Faxton-St. Luke’s Healthcare with her loving family at her side. She was born on November 15, 1962 in New Hartford, a daughter of Carmen Scalzo and the late Shirley Ellis Scalzo.
Linda was a 1981 graduate of New Hartford High School and also attended M.V.C.C.
On July 26, 2008, Linda and Steven Madaras were united in marriage. Together they spent many enjoyable times camping, enjoying the beautiful outdoors.
Linda loved her arts and crafts and created many beautiful Christmas wreaths over the years. She was also a diehard NASCAR fan, loved garage sales, watching “The Waltons” on television and loved her cats and dogs.
Although Linda was saddled with serious health issues for most of her life, having her first open heart surgery at the age of 7, she never complained and was the type of person who put everyone’s needs ahead of her own.
She had an enormous soft spot in her heart for children and cherished the time she worked as a teachers aide and also for the after school day care program, both at New Hartford schools.
Linda is survived by her devoted husband Steven, her father; Carmen Scalzo who was her daytime caregiver for most of the last year, her brother and sister in law; David and Carol Scalzo, her sisters and brothers in law; Hope and Dan Mayack and Laurie and James Goff, her step-sisters; Theresa Thompson, Rosemarie Randazzo, Catherine and Lawrence Guido and Michele Emery as well as many nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her mother; Shirley Scalzo, her sister; Beth Anne Scalzo and her step-mother; Marjorie Scalzo.
Linda’s Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Wednesday, April 10 at 10:30 at St. Patrick’s-St. Anthony’s Church in Chadwicks. Interment will be in Sauquoit Valley Cemetery at a later date.
Calling hours will be Tuesday from 4-7 at the Smith Funeral Home, 3022 Oneida St. Sauquoit.
