BALLSTON SPA — Linda Mae Krywy, 56, of Ballston Spa, peacefully passed away on December 11, from Glioblastoma Multiforme, an aggressive brain cancer. 

Born in Ballston Spa on February 10, 1957, Linda was the youngest daughter of the late Henry and Frances (Hika) Krywy.  

After graduation from Ballston Spa High School, Linda received various degrees from her studies at Mitchell College in Connecticut, Syracuse University, and the University of Maine.  Her desire for a career in Eastern Medicine led her to the Oregon Center for Oriental Medicine (OCOM) where she completed four years of study and became a Board Certified Acupuncturist after taking her final boards in California. 

While practicing acupuncture in the western US, Linda’s deep Christian faith drew her to Christian College studies. Her church calling was cut short when she returned to Ballston Spa to live with her mother after the passing of her father. She then opened Adirondack Acupuncture and began her career as a New York State licensed acupuncturist. With a generous heart, Linda often allowed her patients to barter for her services— eggs, firewood, maple syrup, etc.  Linda continued her acupuncture business until her brain cancer made it impossible. 

Linda was a very artistic individual.  She enjoyed conversing, and singing and playing several musical instruments with family and friends.  She also enjoyed painting.  Her outside interests included helping others in any way she possibly could and when time allowed, she enjoyed watching the NY Yankees, fishing, hiking and walking her beloved Beagle Patch.

Linda is survived by her brother Donald Krywy of Ballston Spa; two sisters, Mary Ann Baratta of Belmont, Massachusetts and Karen Rush of Scotia; seven nieces; three nephews; one great-niece; and many cousins and countless friends.

The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to those of the A-3 staff of the Saratoga Hospital who became our dear friends through Linda’s lengthy stay. We also offer our most sincere gratitude to all of the Clergy and personal friends who came to visit and pray with us over Linda throughout her sickness.

There will be a memorial service to celebrate Linda’s life on December 28 at 11a.m. at the Christ Episcopal Church, 10 West High Street in Ballston Spa. 

In lieu of flowers, contributions in memory of Linda Krywy may be made to the National Brain Tumor Society, 55 Chapel Street, Suite 200, Newton, MA  02458 or through their website at www.braintumor.org
