Linda Flashberg Feinstein passed away at home in Monmouth Junction on June 3, 2020. She would have been 70 on June 17th. She was predeceased by her parents, Max and Harriet Flashberg and is survived by Norman Feinstein, her son Adam and his wife Rachel, brother Bernard Flashberg and his wife Martha, and a host of cousins and friends.
Linda grew up in South Plainfield and graduated from the high school in 1968. She then graduated from Rutgers University’s Livingston College and pursued a satisfying career as a social worker for the state of New Jersey. After retirement, she led a happy life pursuing a number of interests. This included, in recent years, time spent at her condo in Tamarac, Florida. Some of her interests included animals (including her dogs Bonzo, Sheba, and Lucy and her cat Rufio) in need of assistance, scrapbooking, Facebook and listening to music and going to concerts, including the mandatory, for New Jersey people, a Springsteen concert. She had a passion for seeing that errors in the world would be made right and stood up for her beliefs.
But, more than anything, she was a people person. Though coming from a small immediate family, most of whom were out of state, she enjoyed keeping in contact with them, mostly through email or phone. She had, and enjoyed many friends. These were people from work, her classmates at South Plainfield, and friends she met along the path of her life.
However, as most people who knew her well, it was Adam that gave her the greatest pleasure. His outgoing personality was probably due, in part, to be an offshoot of his mother’s. It gave her great pleasure when Adam found the love of his life with Rachel.
The funeral was held June 7, 2020 at Beth Israel Cemetery in Woodbridge under the supervision of Murphy’s Funeral Home of Monmouth Junction. Presiding was Rabbi Robert Wolkoff of Temple B’Nai Tikvah in North Brunswick.
