Linda Bickel Grassi, raised in Wildwood Crest and a graduate of  Wildwood High School, was a Glenwood Avenue Elementary School teacher in Wildwood, NJ for 20 years. She was fondly known to everyone as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and friend. 

When diagnosed with ovarian cancer, Linda’s close friends and co-workers came together to raise funds to help defray the enormous costs of her treatment and the ancillary expenses.  

Even though Linda lost her battle with cancer in May of 1994 at the age of 46, the work and the love continue through the Love of Linda Cancer Fund, Inc.  Visit the About Us section to find out more.
