Linda Marlene Sperrazza

Linda Marlene Sperrazza, 74, of Laflin, passed away Wednesday, January 17, 2024, in Allied Services Hospice Center, Wilkes-Barre.


Born in Wilkes-Barre on December 13, 1949, she was the daughter of the late Fred and Pearl Snarski Fabbrini.


Linda was a graduate of GAR High School and Empire Beauty School.  In her earlier years, she had a beauty shop at her home. 


Linda’s love had extended from her family and friends, to her dogs, to her artistic eye in all that is beautiful. 

As a wife, Linda loved to spend Saturday nights dancing and dining with her beloved Santo, family, and friends. When she became a mother, she showered her girls with love and wisdom that they will both hold tight throughout their lifetime. As a grandmother, Linda spoiled the five girls. From teaching them (and friends) how to swim, to finding adorable outfits and toys at TJ Maxx, she loved her girls and she loved to shop. 

Linda also had a love and strong connection with dogs. There was never a time she didn’t have one. In fact, she met Santo at a swimming hole with her dogs. She adored her German Shepherds, then, later in life, her Dobermans. 

Finally, when thinking of Linda, one cannot escape her passion for style, whether it was with clothing, shoes, hair, make-up, or even interior design, she had an eye for what looked pretty, beautiful, eccentric and unique.  From styling ladies’ hair in her basement, or tiling a brick wall, Linda knew what looked good and executed it. 

Above all, Linda was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, and will be tremendously missed by all who knew her. 

Surviving are her husband of 49 years, Santo Sperrazza; daughters, Alauna Serino and her husband Mark, Yatesville and Tarah Rawhouser and her husband Brian, Duryea; siblings, Kenny Fabbrini and his wife Debbie, NY; Elaine Donnini and her husband Jerry, FL; and Joyce Scarnulis and her husband Ron, Plains; sister-in-law, Leona Owens and her husband Tom, FL; granddaughters, Milania and Ciera Serino and Nadia, Lilah and Nola Rawhouser; numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins. 


We would like to extend our love and gratitude to the crew at Second Family in Wilkes-Barre, the ER and Five East employees at Geisinger, and everyone at Allied Hospice in Wilkes-Barre for their unwavering love, guidance, support and expertise. All of the care given to Linda from Santo, Second Family, Geisinger, Allied, and family and friends is proof there are living angels here on Earth.  

The family will receive friends and relatives Monday, January 22, 2024, from 5pm-7pm in Adonizio Funeral Home, LLC, 251 William Street, Pittston.  A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated Tuesday, January 23, 2024, at 11am in St. Barbara Parish, 224 Memorial Street, Exeter. Those attending are asked to go directly to the church.  Interment will follow in Denison Cemetery, Swoyersville.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the Alzheimer’s Association (, Second Family Memory Care Center ( or the SPCA (
