Linda Reed owned The Clothesline on Bank Street

Linda Reed, owner of a downtown Albion business and a cancer survivor who rallied her neighbors to join her Relay for Life team, died in a car accident on Saturday.

Reed was in the state of Alabama, visiting friends. Orleans Hub doesn’t have the details about the accident.

Reed lived on East Park Street in Albion. She held frequent yard sales to raise money for cancer research. She went door to door, seeking donations for the cause and enlisted neighbors in a Relay for Life walk in Lockport.

Reed in August became owner of The Clothesline, a consignment and gift shop on East Bank Street.

Reed’s Facebook page includes many tributes from family and friends.
