    I can’t believe I am reading this right now! You were such an amazing wife, mother and friend to many! I will never forget your hospitality towards me and my family! You were the best chef I have ever encountered and I still crave your white clam sauce till this day! May you rest with God because you were an angel on earth so I’m sure you will be in heaven!

    I still called her my sister in-law, because i knew her since she was 18 years old. Even though being divorced from Joey’s brother., we still remained family. Recently we moved up to calling each other sister. Because again that’s how close we were not in miles but in our hearts & souls. Linda was a great wife, mother, grandmother and friend she was hospitable and made you feel like you meant everything to her. She has suffered more than anyone should, but I know she is in the arms of Jesus now. Heaven has another Angel, and she will watch over her Loving husband Joe & her beautiful daughters Michelle & Jennifer and her Grandchildren. May she Rest In Paradise Forever❤️😘❤️😘🙏🙏🙏Love, Terry

    Never have I met a stronger woman and a better person then my sister-in-law Linda, how lucky she was to have her husband Joey who did everything he could to help Linda in her time of need, hopefully she is now at rest and peace and will meet up with my wife, her sister Leslie in a much better place than where she was, we will all miss you!

    I first met Mrs. Linda Stenukinis (Mrs. S) when I was 17. She asked me if there was another person from Pittsburgh in her home and offered me a bowl of stew.

    The last time I heard from Mrs. S years later, she sent me her phone number and address for support and sent me words of encouragement.

    I think the above pretty much sums up her character. Aside for her smile and the sparkle in her eyes, her strength and love of her family was much to respect and admire.

    I am very sorry to the Stenukinis, Kuker and Jablonski family for such an incredible loss.

  23. Christina Stocki Nov 23, 2019 at 12:01 am

    I am so blessed to have known her through her son Adam. She now enjoys his company as they wait to one day meet with others who love their Lord. I have sweet memories of her kindness . I will pray for the family; my deepest sympathies for their loss.

    Rest in peace cousin
