Obituary for Linda L. Colo

Linda L. Colo, 72, lifelong resident of Windsor Locks, passed away on Sunday, May 17, 2020, after a courageous battle with Covid19. She left this world surrounded in spirit by the love of her family and dear friends.
Linda was the daughter of the late Angelo and Mary (Colturi) Colo. She graduated from Merrimack College and earned one Masters degree in Journalism from Syracuse University, and a second Masters degree as a Library Media Specialist from Trinity College. She was formerly employed by the Windsor Locks Public Schools where she devoted over 35 years both in teaching English and as a Media Specialist.
She will also be remembered for her love of reading, travel and theater, but mostly for the kindness with which she treated others, and for the boundless love and caring she exhibited daily to her family and friends. Linda, like the generations before her, embraced the love of family and through her example has passed that on to future generations.
She is survived by her dear brother Dr. Richard J. Colo and his wife, Alexis of Suffield; her nephews Geoffrey Colo of Los Angeles, CA, and Matthew Colo of Phoenix, AZ; her great nieces, Reilynn and Skylar; her very dear lifelong best friend, Rosemarie DellAquila; her cousins Patty and Jay White of Windsor Locks, along with their children who she referred to as her nieces and nephews, Allison and her husband Kevin Clynch of East Windsor, and their daughter Mia; Cristin and her husband Nathan Hoyt of Suffield; along with her cousin Michael and his wife Laura of Niantic, and their children, Brendt, Devon, Raeann, and Garret.
Her family would like to extend very special thanks to the staff at St. Francis Hospital for their kindness and compassion shown not only to Linda, but also to her family members. A memorial service will be planned at a later date. A scholarship fund will be set up in her memory. Donations can be sent in Linda’s memory to Windsor Locks Dollars for Scholars, PO Box 653, Windsor Locks, CT 06096. To leave online condolences, please visit

I am so sorry to learn of Linda's passing. Although I was a colleague of hers for only a few years at WLHS, it was very evident how much she cared about her students and school. I always enjoyed her company and appreciated her insights at English Department meetings. It is with great sadness that I extend my condolences to her family. Chris Saunders

My condolences as well to the Colo family on this sad news and impact of this terrible virus. It has hit too close to home now. Miss Colo, never Linda, was my Sophomore English teacher at WLHS. She made that class so interesting and impactful for me, that it pushed me into Honors English my Jr. year. She was a truly special person, teacher and friend and will be greatly missed. Rest in peace....

To Richard and family,
It was such a surprise to read that Linda had passed. I remember her from as far back as St. Marys School and she was just such a nice person. Please accept my sincere condolences.
