Barbara Ruth (Linden) Meehan of Albany, 75, passed away peacefully on Thursday October 24th, 2019 surrounded by family and friends after battling cancer. Barbara was the youngest child of Jack Linden and Frances (Privler) Linden, born January 10th, 1944 in Albany where she lived the majority of her life and raised her family.
Upon graduating Albany High School Barbara entered into the workforce doing clerical work at an insurance agency, soon after marrying and staying home to have children and raise her family.
