OWINGS MILLS, MD. – Linda Friedman, of Owings Mills, passed away at Sinai Hospital on Jan. 22, 2023, after 14 months of health complications. She was the daughter of the late Milton and Pauline (Peskin) Kaufman. She was raised in Cranston before moving to Virginia, and resided in Maryland for over 40 years.
She is survived by her devoted husband, Edward Friedman; loving children, Matthew (Andrea) Friedman of Owings Mills, and Joshua (Leslie) Friedman of Hanover, Pennsylvania; loving siblings, William (Meri) Kaufman, of Warwick, and Marion (Mark) Woolf, of Cranston. She also leaves her precious grandchildren, Darren, Olivia and Logan, nieces and nephews and longtime friends.
Linda spent most of her working years performing office work, both in Rhode Island and Maryland. She worked for many years for the Baltimore County Public Schools, beginning as a lunch lady and then in the office of a variety of schools. She was well-loved by everyone.
Linda and Ed loved to travel and were frequent cruise passengers. She loved to shop and was a queen at getting things with coupons or on sale. She was very generous and always buying for others especially her grandchildren. She especially enjoyed her summers when she could go to the pool daily and was able to develop many friendships there. When visiting Rhode Island, she had several things she had to do. The beach and a casino visit were her priorities. And going to Iggy's Doughboys and having Chinese food, lobster and coffee ice cream were a must.
