ObituariesLinda Marie Howley Linda Marie Howley, 66, of Bradenton Beach, died Oct. 19. She was born June 30, 1948, in Hingham, Massachusetts, and was raised on Cape Cod in South Dennis, Massachusetts. She married Theodore Joseph Quintin in 1971. The two started a family together and built and managed a ski lodge in Montgomery, Vermont. In 1983, she moved back to Cape Cod and then to Florida, for 22 years, where she enjoyed the warm weather, reading, many friends and visits from her children and grandchildren. well over 20 years taking care of people and their homes. She was a friend to all who knew her. A celebration of life was held Oct. 21 at the Annie Silver Community Center in Bradenton Beach.

Swamy Pandy G. Swamy of Holmes Beach died Oct. 21. He was born June 9, 1935, in Ajjampur, India, to a family in the lowest social class, known as the untouchables. In telling his story, he often said he went from a known destiny to an unknown destiny. When the English left India in 1947, the new government focused efforts on this majority group that had been offered no education or opportunity. Pandurangappa Govindaswamy was educated through their scholarship programs and medicine was the career goal selected by his father. It was in the Mysore Medical Colfor his future: playing cards. His skill and luck helped others from his community, too. Decades later, his new father-in-law would teasingly say he lost his daughter in a game of poker. Dr. Swamy passed the medical boards in India and focused on anesthesia, completing his internship and residency in Winnipeg, Canada. In 1967, he joined staff of St. Joseph Hospital. In 1969, he completed a fellowship in neonatal anesthesia, a specialty that he loved until his retirement in 1991. Dr. Swamy provided financial support for the maintenance and education of his extended family in India.
