Yolanda Dedicates Picture Book to Her Late Daughter

Published by Chris Wangler - June 3, 2020.

To honor her daughter Linda, Waltham fashion icon Yolanda Cellucci has published a children’s picture book.

“I wanted to keep Linda’s memory alive since she was so full of life,” Yolanda said.

Linda Petrosian lost her courageous battle with esophageal cancer in 2018. Proceeds from the book will go to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

The softcover self-published book, entitled Lindy Lou and Her Dancing Shoes, explores Linda’s free spirit as a child. You can buy it on Amazon [see link below].

When “Lindy Lou” grew up, she became a successful fashion model and a fixture in Boston-area fashion for many years. Linda also married and had two sons.

After her death, Yolanda organized an annual dance party fundraiser in her honor, but wanted to do more.

“Linda was always a delight as a child and I wanted some of the cute things she did put into a children’s book,” she said. “It brings me great comfort in remembering such precious times.”

Congratulations on the wonderful book from your friends at the Waltham Channel!
