We mourn the loss of Linda Mason Hood, who died suddenly of unknown causes on September 13. Linda was a long-time supporter of Menno House, and served as the chair of the Menno House board for many years. She was a person of many talents and interests, and will be deeply missed. Linda is survived by her husband Dan and their son Michael.
Linda oversaw many, many projects during her eight years as Menno House board chair. This is a blog post she wrote about Menno House’s 50th anniversary.
A wake and funeral were held in mid-September. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending an appropriate contribution to one of the following organizations that were among the passions of Linda’s life:
There are two lovely tributes to Linda online at the New York Times and the New York Irish Arts blog.
