Linda Bingaman Napieralski, 59, of Voorhees, a nursing instructor at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden since 2005, died Wednesday, Oct. 30, of pancreatic cancer at Samaritan Inpatient Hospice Center in Mount Holly.

Born in Reading, she graduated from Muhlenberg High School in Laureldale, Berks County, and earned her registered nurse's diploma at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital in 1975.

While working as a nurse at Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia, she earned her master's degree in nursing at the University of Pennsylvania, a daughter, Jennifer, said.

Through most of her career, her daughter said, Mrs. Napieralski "worked as a nurse full time and taught part time."

After working as a nurse at Jefferson, Hahnemann, and the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, she began a 20-year nursing career at what is now Virtua Voorhees medical center in 1985, working in the intensive-care and cardiac units.

She taught nursing at Burlington County College, Gloucester County College, and Underwood-Memorial Hospital in Woodbury, her daughter said.

In 2009, she earned a post-master's certificate in nursing at Villanova University.

Besides her daughter, she is survived by her mother, Dorothy; another daughter, Lisa Corritore; a grandson; and her former husband, Thomas.

A visitation was set for 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Nov. 1, at the Mark Tilghman Funeral Home, 38 N. Forklanding Rd., Maple Shade, where a memorial service is to be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 2.

Donations may be made to the Jefferson Foundation, Suite 110, 925 Chestnut St., Philadelphia 19107.
