Mayor Purzycki Issues Statement Regarding the Passing of

Wilmington City Council Member Linda Gray


“Wilmington is again mourning the loss of a public servant. Linda Gray, who served as the City Council Member for the people of the 1st District, passed away last night. Her husband, Harold, announced her sudden and unexpected death saying Linda had contracted pneumonia just in the past week. Her death is sad and a shock to us all. We send condolences to Harold and their family. Linda was a former magistrate court judge, the former President for many years of the Brandywine Hills Community Association and was a proud Member of City Council. Linda will be missed by many. We are thankful to her for the years she gave to make her local community and Wilmington a better place to live. We offer support to Harold, a former Wilmington Economic Development Director and current Commissioner of the State Public Service Commission, as he grieves. Linda and Harold were devoted to each other and to serving the public. They were a wonderful team. I have directed that City flags fly at half-staff to note Linda’s passing, to celebrate her life and to commemorate her service to the people of Wilmington.”
