Linda K. (Dendler) Pollock

November 25, 1942 ~ October 19, 2021 (age 78)


Linda K. (Dendler) Pollock, 78, of Berwick, passed away peacefully in her home on Tuesday, October 19, 2021.  Born in Berwick on November 25, 1942, she was a daughter to the late Harry E. and Florence “Polly” (Stiner) Dendler.

Linda was a graduate of Central Columbia High School, Class of 1960.  In 1966, she wed Merritt F. Pollock.  Together they raised their family and shared 41 years of marriage.  Linda was a member of Mifflinville United Methodist Church, where she sang in the choir, was a member of the ladies group, and assisted with Bible School and the Adventure Kids group.  She had worked at Consolidated Cigar and at Ames Department Store, from which she retired in 1996.  Linda enjoyed playing games, especially Parcheesi, and puzzles.  She also enjoyed spending time outside; gardening and tending to her flowers.  She additionally liked watching home improvement television shows.  Her greatest joy, however, was her family, by whom she will be deeply missed.
