Linda Sue Jordan Daniels Skalsky, age 77 passed away after a brief, brave fight against multiple myeloma while at Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare on June 5, 2024.

Linda was born to the late Warren and Mabel (Emerson) Jordan, graduated from Crestview High School in 1965 and immediately went to LPN training in Elyria, Ohio.

Linda was the proud mother to registered nurses Elaine Daniels (Jonathan) Bryant and Elizabeth Ann Daniels Hart. She worked as an LPN while putting herself through RN training at North Central Technical College in Mansfield, Ohio. Afterwards, she worked two full-time jobs to support her girls and build a new home in Medina Ohio.

In 1990 Linda married John L. (Jake) Skalsky and helped raise his daughter Myla Skalsky (Josh) Hershberger in Springville, Ohio.

Linda is survived by Jake, Elaine Beth, Myla, brothers Tom and Jim, and many cherished family, friends, and coworkers.

Linda’s grandchildren and great granddaughter were the light of her life. She loved spending time with all of them, Joshua and Jacob Hart, Ali and Audrey Hershberger, and Savannah Hart.

Linda loved to travel, garden, sew, and was proud of her 43 yearlong nursing careers.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents, brother Wayne Jordan, sister Nancy Jordan Holt and her beloved Teddy, who passed on the same day.

Thank you to all Linda’s family, friends, and coworkers who shared sweet stories and prayers during this difficult time. Special thank you to Ammey (Holt) Frank for her kindness, care, and support. Special thank you to Ohio’s Hospice LifeCare staff and volunteers who took loving care of her and presented her with the nurses honor guard ceremony. It meant the world to us.

My condolences go out to her family who she adored, especially her little granddaughters who will miss her deep love and affection for them. God’s peace to you all.
