Remembering Linda Mallan

Linda Smith Mallan died peacefully November 24, 2021.  She was a member of the Rumson Garden Club since 1992.  In perhaps the only competitive interaction of her life, she enthusiastically participated in flower arranging competitions, winning many blue ribbons and silver bowls.  She loved her garden but loved even more when friends sharred cuttings or divisions of each other's plants.  She had a special fondness for the times when young members came to her garage for advice with arrangement submissions, to borrow a pot, or take home bouquets and clippings.  She had an orchid hospital in her greenhouse and always took in strays, regularly nursing recalcitrant, near-dead plants back to bloom.  Linda touched many hearts in the RGC and she will be dearly missed.
