Linda Ann Propp, age 79, passed peacefully in her home, surrounded by her loved ones, after a brief illness.
Born in Tupper Lake, NY to Jesse and Shirley Jean Propp. After graduation from Tupper Lake High School in 1956, Linda went on to earn a secretarial degree from ATI SUNY Canton. She was a member of Alpha Chi Omicron.
In 1959, Linda and her sister, Abby, followed their parents in a cross-country move to southern California. Linda worked for several different employers over the years, including General Electric, System Development Corporation, and most recently in the library at Gavilan College, until retirement.
Linda was a resident of Morgan Hill for the past 40 years. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends, as well as in nature: sitting on her porch, gardening, feeding the birds and squirrels. Linda supported many causes she believed strongly in, particularly those focused on protecting human rights and the welfare of animals. Linda was known to her loved ones as intelligent, thoughtful and humorous. She will be missed greatly.
Linda leaves behind her son David (Elaine) Alper, daughter Kirsten Votaw, grandchildren Matthew, Nicole and Brandon Alper, longtime friend, Lou Mantione, her two sisters, Abby Schlesinger and Joan Potter, and several nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, her son Todd Alper (1963), her daughter Leslie Alper (2008), and granddaughter Natalie Alper (2001).
A private burial will be held for Linda with family members only.
