Heather Linden, daughter of Ruth and Arthur Linden of Wilton, died June 5, 2018, at the Connecticut Hospice in Branford. Her death was attributed to the onset of metastasized melanoma. Less than three months earlier she was joyfully participating in the handicapped skiing program at Mt. Snow in Vermont, shown in the photo.
Born November 13, 1968, ten weeks premature and weighing only two pounds and two ounces, she was removed from a respirator at one week old and then required a tracheostomy tube. Eventually she was diagnosed with cerebral palsy.
