Linda Alia Simmont, 51, owned insurance business

August 25, 2005

A memorial service for Linda Alia Simmont, former owner of a health insurance business, will be held at 2 p.m. tomorrow at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, 333 Dubois Road.

Mrs. Simmont, 51 and a quadriplegic, was found dead Aug. 18 in Bodkin Creek by divers in a search near her Pasadena home. She had been reported missing the evening before after failing to return home from her usual ride around the neighborhood in an electric wheelchair, and Anne Arundel County police said yesterday that the death remains under investigation.

Born Linda Alia Leonard in Manchester, she was raised in Pasadena and graduated in 1971 from Northeast High School. She worked in real estate sales and later established Chesapeake Health Insurance.

She operated the business until 2000, when she was injured in a horseback riding accident that left her paralyzed.

Mrs. Simmont was an animal lover and enjoyed spending time outdoors.

Surviving are two daughters, Jessica Cammarano and Alexis Simmont, both of Pasadena; two stepdaughters, Anna Simmont of Baltimore and Nori Warren of Glen Burnie; three brothers, Tim Leonard of Galveston, Texas, Jody Leonard of Pasadena and Curtis Leonard of Sarasota, Fla.; and a sister, Laren Leonard of Annapolis. Her marriages to Dennis Cammarano and Gary Simmont ended in divorce.
