A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 19, 2005 at 4 p.m. at Beverly Hills Four Square Church, 432 S. Beverly Drive, Beverly Hills.
A native of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, studied acting and appeared on “The Guiding Light” before enterting publicity.

She then began Linda Stewart Public Relations, repping clients including Engelbert Humperdinck, Herve Villechaize, Yaphet Kotto and boxer Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini. She worked closely with Stephen J. Cannell, was involved in the launch of the CBS medical drama “Chicago Hope” and worked on David Kelley Production’s Emmy-winning “Picket Fences.”
In recent years she served as the press agent for actor Charlton Heston.
Survivors include her mother, a brother and a nephew.
