Linda St. John

December 25, 1952 — August 10, 2023

Linda Louise (O'Dell) St. John, AKA “Weezie” born December 25, 1952, passed away unexpectedly on August 10, 2023, at her residence in Saranac Lake.

Linda was born in Ausable Forks, NY, the daughter of Eugene and Genevieve O'Dell. Linda moved to Connecticut in her early 20s and shortly after she met her first husband Jerry St. Amand. While in Connecticut Linda was the manager of The Whole Donut. After her divorce with Jerry, Linda and her 5 children moved to Saranac Lake, NY. Linda began working at the Edge of The Lake in Lake Placid as a housekeeper, she then became the Manager for many years before retiring. Linda was an avid reader; you would always see her with a new book about every day. If she did not have a book in front of her, chances are she was watching the Hallmark channel. Linda loved to be around her family. Rumor has it she loved her grandchildren more than her own children.

Linda is survived by her sister, Nancy O’Dell of Oneonta, brother, Eugene O'Dell of Saranac Lake, her daughter Desiree (Victor) Trombley of Saranac Lake, son Robert David of Saranac Lake, son Frank O’Dell of Sarasota, Florida and son Chris David and fiancé Michelle Dziabiak Shaw of Orlando, Florida.

As well as great grandchildren Jacob, Alorah Michelle, Aiden, Liam, and many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
