Linda Lee (Vreeland) Hoey, age 77, of Auburn, passed away peacefully on April 21st at the Pathway Hospice Home. Linda was born on December 28, 1944. She was predeceased by her parents Floyd George and Elizabeth Vreeland. After school Linda went on to work several small jobs until she began her long years of work at General Electric. She made many friends and exchanged recipes that started her famous cookies. After finishing her work at GE, Linda achieved her lifelong dream by attending and graduating from cosmetology school. She continued to do hair throughout her life. Soon after that she started her work at Auburn Memorial Hospital and became Dietary Supervisor. Another proud moment of her life was when she and her sisters were inducted into the Daughters of the American Revolution. Linda was a fabulous cook and baker. Her famous Italian cookies were a special treat for all that were lucky enough to receive them. She always made sure her freezer had cookies or treats for family and friends. Linda also was a talented crafter and sewed many projects throughout her life. Quilting became a passion she shared with her sister, Margaret. Her beautiful quilts were something she was extremely proud to create and gift to her family. Her pocket prayer quilts were a special gift she gave to anyone she met.
