Dear Joy,
Oh my, I'm so sorry to hear about your Mom, gorgeous, fun Libby. I have such great memories of Barington Rd, Camp Louise and connecting later in life as adults. Joy (I still want to call you Arlene) your Mom was so warm and bubbly. If I knew how to reach you now I would call so let me leave you my number- 410-602-0082. May you and your family remember the best of times.

Joy and Family,
I am quoting my mother who "has such vibrant memories of Libby from the time they went all through Forest Park High together. She was always warm, funny and with her best friend, beautiful Doris. Libby greeted me with such a warm hug and a beautiful smile every time she saw me over the years. I'll always remember her as special, full of laughter and loving. May she RIP."

Professionally known as Linda Raye or Libby Raye, Libby began her career singing at the age of 3 with the Kiddie Club, performing at the famous Hippodrome Theatre. Over the years her career took her to New York, Florida, Las Vegas, Atlantic City, and Lancaster, PA. Here in her home town of Baltimore she sang at the Roaring 20's Club on Howard Street.

Libby Raye's voice and showmanship has filled many hearts with joy. In her later years she entertained with the Mood Swings, and the Senior Circuit of Baltimore, with The Sun-shiners and the Good-timers, bringing songs and jokes to seniors. Libby Raye will always be remembered with love, laughter and for her incredible voice and showmanship.

Leona, lovingly referred to by her family as Lib-a-sue, is survived by her daughter Joy DiMenna, grandchildren Matthew Crafton and partner Ana Labador, Laura and Chris Karppala, Anthony DiMenna, great grandchildren Landon and Zoey Karppala, many nieces and nephews, and sister Blanche Gellar.
