Linda Ruth Holzapfel


    Linda Ruth Holzapfel, of Manasquan, passed away Thursday, Sept. 3, 2020 peacefully at her home.

    Linda was born in Newark but she grew up on River Place in Manasquan so the Glimmer Glass always held a special place in her heart.

    Linda was a homemaker in every sense of the word. She created a home that welcomed everyone. She loved her family and friends fiercely and greeted anyone who came to her door with open arms. Linda was truly a beautiful person. She touched so many lives and was loved by many.

    Linda loved being at the beach and could often be found on Sea Watch in Manasquan. She always said there was nothing like eating a hamburger on the beach. Looking out at how big the ocean is gave Linda a sense of peace.

    Linda is survived by her adoring husband, William, of almost 57 years, her beloved children, Mark Holzapfel of Point Pleasant, Kelli Rice and her husband David of Ocean Township, Holly Bailey and her husband Jeffery of Point Pleasant, and Kathryn Daly and her husband James of Brick. Linda was also a cherished grandmother to eight grandchildren, Rachel, Tyler, Jack, Stella, Sophie, Madison, Fletcher and Lila.

    Services were private.

    The Neary-Quinn Funeral Home in Manasquan was in charge of arrangements.
