Linda Marie Sarpolis, 74, of Youngwood, formerly of California, PA passed away peacefully in her own home Wednesday September 9, 2020. She was born in Brownsville Hospital in 1945 to James and Jennie McMonagle. Linda graduated from California High School and went to beauty school, eventually opening her own shop and operating it until 1979, the year her daughter was born.
Linda married Michael Sarpolis in May of 1977 and they had two children Tracy Lee Sarpolis and Michael James Sarpolis. After closing her beauty shop, Linda became a devoted full time homemaker. She loved flea markets, garage sales, and Christmas décor. Linda always loved the water, especially Santa Cruz. She also loved amusement parks. Linda always enjoyed the thrill of a roller coaster, her favorite being Kennywood’s The Thunderbolt. Anyone that knew Linda knows she loves to sit around drinking coffee, smoking cigarettes, and “chewing the fat” with friends.
When her kids were young, Linda enjoyed cooking hearty basic American foods and baking cookies and cakes. Her favorite foods were meatloaf, lasagna, and shrimp; and she loved her sweets for dessert. Linda always loved young kids, and she loved her grandchildren more than anything in this world.
Linda was preceded in death by her grandmother Burnese McMonagle, and her father James McMonagle. She is survived by her children, Tracy and Michael; her grandchildren, Michael, Mia, Noah, Taylor, and Jacob; her mother Jennie McMonagle, and siblings Jim, Rosemary, and John.
