Bridgewater, NJ – Linda L. Krizan, 75, passed away at her home surrounded by her loving family on Friday, November 10, 2017. Born in Plainfield to the late Norman and Leona (Houston) Tier, Linda grew up and raised her family in North Plainfield and settled to Bridgewater twenty-two years ago.
Linda retired from Runnells Specialized Hospital in Berkeley Heights where she spent many years employed as a Registered Nurse. She had a love for the Bible and often read each and every day. Active with the Stonecrest Community Church in Warren, Linda loved her church family and enjoyed her time in Bible study.

In her earlier years, she was an avid bowler and belonged to several leagues, enjoyed gambling in Atlantic City, baking, doing crossword puzzles, watching soap operas, especially Young and the Restless. Above all things, Linda’s love for her family was second to none and she enjoyed all her time spent with her cherished grandchildren.
Linda leaves behind her loving and devoted family; husband Thomas whom celebrated fifty-two years of marriage, sons James of Washington Township and Joseph and his wife Stacey of Bridgewater and daughter Kathleen Yates and her husband Scott also of Bridgewater. Linda will be missed by her five grandchildren; Katrina and Tyler Yates and Logan, Dylan and Brooke Krizan along with her sister Laurie Miller and her husband Bill of Florida.
