Linda C.'s Story
Linda Caroline (Peterson) Cicerchia, 87, beloved wife of nearly 50 years of the late Anthony P. Cicerchia, passed away Monday, February 6, at the Brudnick Center for Living in Peabody. Born in Milford, she was the daughter of the late Freddy and Grace (Toye) Peterson.
Linda grew up in the Abington and Brockton area. In her younger years, Linda’s talent and beauty gave her the opportunity to become a professional singer and a model. When she and her husband began their family, she dedicated herself to her children and home. Linda was a great cook, a lover of all animals, especially cats and dogs, and enjoyed traveling to a variety of places with her husband and many friends. She went back to work in her 60s and became an assistant clerk for the Registry of Deeds, Land Court in Salem, where she stayed for over 10 years. Linda was a devoted mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and will truly be missed by her family and many dear friends.

Cicerchia of Lynnfield; one grandchild, Meredith Cicerchia and her husband, Joseph Williams of Nottingham, England; and one great grandson, Chase Williams; along with many friends and extended family members.
