Linda was family orientated with a big commitment to community
By Mary Dennehy
A TALLAGHT resident who encouraged hundreds of people back into the workplace and supported the creation and growth of local business is this week being remembered for her commitment to community.
Linda Twamley (60) passed away earlier this month following a short illness.
Linda Twamley was very much a people person
Originally from Rathfarnham, Linda and her husband John lived in Glenview for a while before settling in Ellensborough 20 years ago with their two children John and Lisa.
Linda worked with Partas, Tallaght Enterprise Centre for more than a decade, before moving to the South Dublin County Partnership, where up until she passed away, was the Enterprise Officer for Clondalkin and Lucan.
Speaking with The Echo this week, Linda’s daughter Lisa remembered her mam as a “very family orientated” and “friendly” person.
“She was a really friendly, outgoing person, who was very family orientated and had a great network of neighbours, friends and colleagues,” Lisa said.
“She absolutely loved her job helping people to get back to work or building their own business.
“She was very much a people person and treated everyone the same.
“She was very diligent and conscientious about her job.
“Her work was very important to her.”
Linda, who was adored by her four grandchildren, was also a great supporter of community and supporting local.
“My mam was all about community”, Lisa said.
“She used to organise seminars and events, at which she’d encourage local networking.
“She had a strong focus on supporting local…and always encouraged us to use local businesses.”
The family wished to express their gratitude to everyone who offered support since Linda’s passing on April 10, including Tallaght University Hospital (TUH).
Linda’s husband John said: “Tallaght University Hospital were amazing, especially the team in the Osbourne Ward.
“We’ve also had great support from neighbours, friends and family and thanks to everyone for the flowers, messages… we are so grateful.”
