Linda Lee Bernady, a retired advertising sales assistant for The Baltimore Sun, died of a heart attack Monday at Harbor Hospital. The Brooklyn Park resident was 64.

Born Linda Lee Pitz in Colver, Pa., where she was raised, she moved to the Baltimore to attend the St. Agnes Hospital School of Nursing.

She joined The Sun in 1968 and worked there until she retired in late 2005.

"She was an excellent cook and baker, and spoiled us all," said Carol Longdon, a former co-worker. "She was always thinking of someone else."

Mrs. Bernady enjoyed flower gardening and raised roses, snapdragons, mums and gladioluses. She also remembered friends and family members with birthday and anniversaries letters and cards.

She was a member of the Patapsco River Power Squadron Auxiliary and enjoyed sailing on the Magothy River and the Chesapeake Bay.

Services were held yesterday in Brooklyn.
