April 20, 1948 - January 20, 2018
CROTHERS, Linda Lee (Cowley) Linda L. Crothers, 69, passed away in Flower Hospital on January 20, 2018 surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Toledo, Ohio on April 20, 1948 to Raymond L. and Annette M. (Huebner) Cowley. Linda attended Harvard Elementary & Junior High and graduated from E.L. Bowsher High School in 1966. Linda worked in the banking industry for several years in the late 1960s. It was during high school that she met the love of her life, Tom Crothers. They were married in 1968 and that union was blessed with two sons, James and Dean. She was a fully devoted mother who realized that caring for others was both her gift and her passion. Therefore, she enrolled in college to gain a Licensed Practical Nurse designation and then continued on to obtain her Registered Nursing Degree. Linda worked at Toledo and Mercy St. Anne’s Hospitals for many years and then administered her nursing skills to the elderly and infirm at several local nursing homes, Heartland-Holly Glen among them. While working, Linda played a very prominent role in raising her children to become two honorable and strong young men. After her retirement, she cherished time spent with her 10 grandchildren. She enjoyed volunteering to teach kids and adults to read and in serving the less fortunate in our community. She also took delight in traveling, reading and loving her pets. In short, Linda was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who leaves a legacy of love and compassion for all who had the good fortune to know her. Linda was preceded in death by her parents, Raymond & Annette Cowley, parents-in-law, Ken & Jean Crothers (all four of whom she nursed during their last days), sister Judith and brother Richard. Linda is survived by her husband Tom; sons Jamie (Joni Meyer) Crothers of Sylvania, OH and Dean (Rachel) Crothers of Maineville, OH; brother Raymond Cowley of Aurora, IL; and sisters Jan (Jack) Webb of Toledo, OH and Lorilyn Campbell of Augusta, ME. She is also survived by ten loving grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Friends may visit at the Coyle Funeral Home, 1770 S.
