    On a personal note, I enjoyed all my years working with you at the Hyatt on Capitol Square. Your skills were endless. A master baker and pastry artist in the bakeshop, a skilled Garde Manger, and a fine admin for the staff of the culinary department.
    We all looked up to you for motherly advice as your wisdom shared direction, mature thoughts, and the morally correct directions.

    You have left behind a lovely family of loving and caring members who will continue your legacy of love to all. May the peace of Christ be with your family and all those who you love.

  • I feel privileged to have known Linda and to call her friend. She was such an inspiration to me of someone who never gave up, who put others needs before her own, who was generous beyond belief and, despite her own health issues, always greeted others with a smile and seemed grateful for each day, giving God all the Glory! What a treasure! Thank you, Linda, for all of your love and friendship and service to St Mary! And thank you for teaching our son Michael how to make homemade pasta. You will be greatly missed by so many. God be with Joe and family!

  • Was such a privilege to know Linda, she was such a kind, caring person and I know there is a special place for her in Heaven. Rest in peace Linda with the risen Lord. You will be missed ❤️🙏

  • My heartfelt condolences go out to the Boggioni Family on the passing of Linda. The world has lost a delightful, loving and caring lady. It was my pleasure to have known her and so enjoyed our friendship through the Columbus Chapter of the American Culinary Federation. May she rest in peace. May the family live on with fond memories of her.

  • Momma Boggioni had a heart big enough to shelf everyone she came in contact with. She had a heart of gold and a warm, welcoming spirit for us all. Her pastries were amazing. It’s a wonder I didn’t gain 50 pounds taste testing in my younger days. She also custom made my wedding cake….as a gift! I don’t know how the world will get along without her. I know her family will never be able to fill her void. I’m going to spend tonight going through pictures and remembering every way she touched my life. Derek and I send our deepest sympathy and love to the family.

  • Linda was a good friend. She had been a member of the Women’s City Club of Delaware, where she worked hard, and gave of herself to members and to the residents at the house.

    We had many good times. I will never forget all the wonderful food Linda created, and I was privileged to assist her a few times, although I could never make the fantastic, delicious, and beautiful cakes, cookies, and dishes she so lovingly made.

    I will miss Linda very much. She was such fun, such a hard worker, and so kind and loving.

    My condolences to her family. I know they will miss her every day, as I will.

  • My thoughts and prayer goes out to the family, although I was only in her presence a few times I knew her well through Carman,, she was a beautiful soul. No more pain no more sorry, we die to live again. This earth is not our home. Blessings to the family and friends.

  • Our deepest condolences to Joe and the Boggioni family. We always enjoyed seeing Linda and Joe at the C-J Xmas parties, and especially enjoyed the delicious desserts she would make and share with the group. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

  • Joe, I was so upset to see this news and so very sad. I so loved hanging with Linda and getting to know her. She was amazing and I consider myself lucky enough to have had the opportunity to know her! She will be greatly missed! Prayers and blessings to you and your family!
    Love, Phil and Sue Capretta

    Linda was such a kind and loving woman, always doing for someone else. We got to know each other at the at the Women’s City Club. She taught me a lot about baking, and I always enjoyed our time together. As good as she was, she always had a little devil in her – such fun!

  • I am so sorry for the loss of your wife and mother. It was a privilege to know Linda. I first met her about 11 or 12 years ago when I was a liaison and volunteer coordinator between St. Mary’s and Family Promise. She would bring her delicious meals and baked goods in abundance & volunteered to do that so often. She was an inspiration for me. You are in my prayers as you try to adjust to her not being physically with you.
    Joe, I lost my husband when I was 53; we had been married for 30 years. That was the most difficult time of my life but I was comforted by my faith and, in time, the pain of that loss did lessen. After 23 years, I still think of him daily.

  • Jack and I met Linda thru her sister and brother-in-law Sharon and David, she was a special lady. She was always thinking of others and their needs. And, always there to do whatever she could to help in anyway she could. She will be so very much missed.

  • There are no words to describe the passing of a incredible woman. I took care of her in our rehab facility and she touched everyone of us. She will be deeply missed. She will always have a piece of my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with all of her family.
