Linda Perine Obituary


Linda J. Perine (McDuffie) was a devoted woman of God, born-again Christian, cherished daughter, much loved sister, aunt, and friend to many. She departed earth for Glory suddenly on November 26, 2023 at the age of 66.

Linda was born on July 30, 1957 in Mobile, Alabama to Edna Mae Daniels and Tom Perine. At around the age of 3, she joined her mother, who had migrated from the Jim Crow south, in Huntington Station, New York. There, she came under the covering and protective love of her stepfather, Reverend James S. McDuffie, who embraced her as his very own.

Linda attended school in Huntington Station: first at Silas Wood Elementary, then Henry L. Stimson Junior High School, and ultimately Walt Whitman High School where she graduated in June 1975 with a New York State Regents Diploma. She completed post secondary credits at both Farmingdale Community College and Hofstra University.

Linda held various employment positions culminating with her career as a flight attendant, first with New York Air, and later with American Airlines for more than twenty years.

Linda is preceded in death by her mother, Edna M. McDuffie; her biological father, Tom Perine; her stepfather, James S. McDuffie; brothers Marshall Daniels and Earnest Maurice McDuffie (Angela); and first cousin (sister) Marcella Wilson.

She is survived by her brother, James E. McDuffie; sister, Brenda L. Wooten (Hodges, Sr.); brother William J. McDuffie (Yvette); sister Cindy M. Roberson (Oscar); her sister Betty Phileon; brother Tommie Perine (Shalonda); brother Charvis Perine (Celena); sister Tamiko Perine-McCreary (Jonathan); devoted aunt Joann Carey; loving caretaker Barbara Brill; and scores of uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, cousins, godchildren, and dear friends too many to mention.
