Linda Mims Phreaner passed away peacefully on June 17, 2020 in her West Chester, PA home, following a four year battle with metastatic breast cancer.
Linda was born on November 9, 1947 to Julius and Marjorie (nee Griggs) Mims. She grew up in Silver Spring, MD and graduated from Montgomery Blair High School. She went on to earn a Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from Gettysburg College and an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania.
She had a keen intellect and a thoughtful, curious nature, and had a varied career in medical research, business logistics, and information technology.
She retired in 2013 from her job as a Systems Analyst at Accenture, but never slowed down and devoted herself to volunteering in her community and a newfound passion for gardening.
She was an active member of Birmingham Friends Meeting, board member of the West Chester Friends school, and dedicated volunteer at the Friends Association for Care and Protection of Children.
Linda was preceded in death by her parents, and by her husband of 27 years, Jim Phreaner, in 2012.
She is survived by her sister Bettina Thomasson, two daughters Julie Phreaner and Melissa Baldwin, son-in-law Carter Baldwin, and numerous loving family members and devoted friends.
There will be no memorial service planned for the immediate future, since Linda did not want to put friends and family at risk by gathering at this time.
If desired, friends may make memorial contributions to West Chester Friends School or the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).
