Memorial for Linda Woo

On the morning of May 16th, 2008, beloved Kyung-Sook "Linda" Woo, 63, who owned the Eden Dry Cleaners at 10th Avenue and Windsor Place in Windsor Terrace, was found dead in her store. Mrs. Woo had owned the shop for years after moving here from Korea and used to live across the street with her family before moving to Queens. Jamal Winter, 22, is being held without bail in connection with the death. He was arraigned on first and second degree murder charges and first degree robbery. At the time of this tragedy, Winter was out on bail on another robbery case and was scheduled to go on trial for that case in June.

Thanks to Robert Bello Landscaping for donating the tree, to The NYC Parks Department for arranging a speedy tree planting, and to Clieve Christian and the Prospect Park Commerce Bank for generously helping set up the Linda Woo Memorial Fund. The fund will pay for a plaque to be placed under the tree and for a fence to enclose the tree's base. After these items are paid for, any additional funds will be given to Mrs. Woo's family to use at their discretion.

There are several ways to contribute to the fund:
1) Checks can be made out to the Linda Woo Memorial Fund, placed in an envelope marked "Memorial Fund" and dropped in the mail slots of either 243 Windsor Place- beginning Tuesday May 27th, or 18 Reeve Place- beginning immediately.
