January 11, 1941 — August 5, 2019

St. Regis Falls – Linda J. (LaBounty) Knepp, 78, passed away Monday, August 5, 2019 at Canton Potsdam Hospital.  Arrangements are entrusted to the Hammill Funeral Home in St. Regis Falls.

Linda was born on January 11, 1941 in Santa Clara, daughter of the late Harold and Evelyn (Ploof) LaBounty and graduated from St. Regis Falls Central School.  She married Alvin Knepp on October 19, 1974 at Trinity United Methodist Church.  They shared 43 years of a marriage filled with friendship and love. Her beloved Alvin passed away on May 2, 2018.

As a short order cook, Linda worked for many restaurants over the years and owned The Eskimo Inn in St. Regis Falls.  She always stayed busy and raising two Army brats (“whom she loved dearly”).  She enjoyed snowmobiling and at Christmas was known for all the cookies she gave away.
