She especially enjoyed spending time with her three wonderful grandchildren and families. She was always preparing Sunday and holiday dinners for them all.

Linda was a graduate of Saegertown High School and had been employed by DeSantis Party & Janitor Supply for a number of years.

In addition to her husband, Gregory F.

Davenport, of Saegertown; three grandchildren, Gregory Kiser, Casey Kiser and Olivia Anne Kiser. She was so proud of and loved them all dearly.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a son, Vincent Francis Kiser, due to a car accident, on Dec. 27, 2012.

The family wishes to express its sincere appreciation to Barbara for the sincere, gentle and loving care she gave to Linda to the very end.

Family and friends are welcome to call on Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Hatheway-Tedesco Funeral Home & Crematory, 614 Baldwin St., Meadville.
