Linda Ann (Pittman) Rooney, 49, of Wayne

"She was a spirited, kind and loving person by nature," her obituary reads.

A memorial service is being held for Linda Rooney in her native state of Minnesota on Wednesday. A private service was held recently in Wayne.

According to her obituary, Rooney grew up in Bloomington, Minnesota. "She was a spirited, kind and loving person by nature," it reads.

Tuesday's snowstorm may have closed Merck's West Point, Pennsylvania campus, where Rooney was most recently working. But many of her co-workers were still able to do something small to help remember her by.

Many people have written about Rooney in her online guest book, which you can read and sign here. Comments include:

I had the honor of working directly for Linda at Merck for the past year. Her energy, passion, and excitement was so powerful, it just made everyone want to be a part of whatever she was leading. I am so honored to have had my life influenced by knowing her as a mentor and a friend.

Linda's positive personality and enthusiasm were contagious. She was a ray of sunshine to those around her.

Linda was a great mentor and friend to many people at Merck. She was so proud of her children and spoke of them often. May it comfort you to know that she achieved many accomplishments, so very many successes, a wealth of hopes and dreams fulfilled, days and days well-lived.
