“Forever in our hearts ”
1 of 1 | Posted by: Mary Kehayas - Mahopac, NY

Bridget E. Linehan of Yorktown Heights, NY passed away peacefully on May 3, 2018 surrounded by her loving family; she was 100 years old. Bridget was born in County Leitrim, Ireland on January 29, 1918 to Thomas and Elizabeth (McPadden) Christy and one of eight children. On November 23, 1951 she married Edmond Linehan at St. Francis DeSales Church in New York City; they were blessed with three daughters.

Bridget always spoke her mind, stood for what she felt was right and loved those New York Yankees like no other. Her family was most important of all and this world will forever be a bit darker without her smile, quick wit and bling she always wore.

She is survived by her daughters Helena Bottomley, Mary (Vincent) Kehayas, and Kathleen Linehan; her granddaughters Christie (Brandon Berger) and Maribeth (Matt Bremner); and two great grandsons Travis Berger and Brayden Bremner.

Friends and family are welcome to attend a visitation on Sunday, May 6th from 2-6 PM at the Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home in Mahopac, NY. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, May 7th at 10AM at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Church in Shrub Oak with interment to follow at Gate of Heaven Cemetery in Hawthorne.
