In memory of
Lynda Anne Cole-Hoagland
Lynda Anne Cole-Hoagland PALMER TOWNSHIP Lynda Anne Cole-Hoagland, 52, of Palmer Township, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and friends on Saturday, April 3, 2021, at her home. Born March 10, 1969, in Wilson Borough, PA, she was a daughter of Jan T. and Anne (Smith) Cole, of Palmer Township. She and her husband, Troy W. Hoagland, were married on November 20, 2020. She graduated from Easton Area High School Class of 1987 and received a BA degree in accounting from Bloomsburg University in 1991. After college Lynda discovered her passion of working with dogs and in time opened her own business, Cole's K-9 Center, Bath. She created and established a very friendly and professional business offering an array of services such as agility, personal training, grooming, kenneling and much more. Lynda was very proud of the dogs (and owners) that she trained and helped. She trained dogs for police departments and was known in the Lehigh Valley as an excellent dog trainer. Lynda also volunteered a great deal of her time and resources to foundations such as Dog T.A.G.S. of the Lehigh Valley, helping veterans with PTSD and Wounded Warriors. She had previously been a tax preparer for H & R Block and worked in the accounting department of General Crushed Stone. She was a member of St. Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic Church. Lynda also somehow found time to prepare and run marathons including finishing the NYC Marathon and the Marine Corps Marathon, Washington, DC. Lynda was a certified scuba diver, diving in sunken ships, with the sharks and stingrays. She also enjoyed skydiving. With the love and support from family and friends, Lynda sought the drive, determination and hard work ethic to be successful. Lynda will be very missed and loved by her family, friends and the world of dogs. Surviving in addition to her husband and parents are two brothers, Jeffrey Cole, of Bushkill Township and Craig Cole, of Williams Township; a niece, Katie Cole, two nephews, Josh and David Cole; a great-nephew, Jacob Cole; her mother-in-law, Fay Miller and her husband, Richard, of Bangor; a brother-in-law, Samuel Hoagland, of Bethlehem Township and two sisters-in-law, Tondra Hoagland, of Saylorsburg and Virginia Snyder and her husband Rick, of Bangor; aunts, uncles, cousins and her beloved German Shepherd, Gannon and cat, Kiki. She was predeceased by her maternal grandparents, John and Catherine (Loftus) Smith and a brother, Daniel Jan Cole. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:30am Thursday in St. Jane's Catholic Church, 4049 Hartley Avenue, Easton, PA 18045. Burial will be in Northampton Memorial Shrine. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements are by the Strunk Funeral Home, Inc., Wilson Borough. Offer online condolences at www.strunkfh.com .
