Linda Baruch Leon passed away peacefully, surrounded by loving family on April 10, 2024 due to complications of Alzheimer’s disease. She was 75 and had resided on Casey Key in Nokomis, FL since 2004.

These words cannot do justice for the incredible life that Linda led and the significant impact she had on the people around her. Linda was a remarkable and courageous woman. She will be remembered most for her generosity, her bravery, and how she lived life on her own terms.

Linda is survived by her husband, Mitchell Leon, and her daughter, Lindsay Sullivan (Steve Trimble). She was a wonderful stepmother and loved dearly by Anya Olin-Leon and Noah Leon (Nicole Leon). Linda is also survived by her 6 grandchildren: Audrey Trimble, Nora Trimble, Victoria Costa Silva, Oliva Costa Silva, Mia Leon, and Asher Leon as well as her 5 siblings, and many cousins, nieces, nephews and dear friends. Linda was predeceased by her son, Teddy Sullivan.

Linda was born January 16, 1949 and lived in Baltimore, MD until her family moved to Princeton, NJ in 1954. She attended Westover School in Middlebury, CT and the University of Denver where she majored in fine arts. In 1970 Linda married Brian Sullivan. Although their marriage ended after 30 years, they remained good friends and co-parents of Lindsay and Teddy.

In 1972, Linda returned from Denver to Princeton to work with her mother in their graphic design/printing business, Minute Press, which Linda ran until 1988. She was an artist and businesswoman, having started a number of businesses including DesignWrite, a medical education company, in 1993 with Mitch which survives to this day. Linda retired after Teddy’s death in 2002. In March of 2009, Linda and Mitch were married at their home on Casey Key.

Linda was a wonderful mother and a well-loved member of every community she lived in. A travel enthusiast, she enjoyed incredible trips to some ofthe most exciting places in the world. She was a woman whose devotion to family and friends was her guiding principle and most important legacy.

Gone too soon, Linda loved this life filled with so much joy and friendship. She will be deeply missed by so many.

A memorial service will be held at Princeton Cemetery on May 18, 2024 at 4pm. She will be buried near her parents and son, Teddy.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Linda’s name to HOMEFRONT (1880 Princeton Ave., Lawrenceville, NJ 08648), an important organization in the Princeton and surrounding community working to break the cycle of poverty.
