Beloved neighborhood merchant Kyung-Sook “Linda” Woo, who owned the Eden Dry Cleaners at 10th Avenue and Windsor Place in Windsor Terrace, was found dead in her store on the morning of May 16.
Woo had owned the shop for years after moving to Windsor Terrace from Korea, and lived across the street with her family before moving to Queens. Jamal Winter, 22, is being held without bail in connection with her death.
A tree was planted in front of the store in her memory and Commerce Bank rep Clieve Christian and the Prospect Park Commerce Bank generously helped the community 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 or 18 Reeve Place.
2. Checks can be made out to the Linda Woo Memorial Fund and mailed to: The Linda Woo Memorial Fund c/o Brenna Beirne, 711 Greenwood Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11218
3. Go to www.paypal.com and donate to the account email@example.com, which has been created specifically for this memorial fund — note that the purpose of your donation is for the Linda Woo memorial fund. Paypal accepts major credit cards.
