Ralph Wilson’s daughter, Linda Bogdan, died today after a bout with cancer. She was 61.

Ralph Wilson has lived a long life, but it’s always sad to outlive a child.

Bogdan was one of two Wilson daughters involved with the Buffalo Bills, though she was the only one involved in football operations – Bogdan was the NFL’s first female scout.

We Dukes are saddened by her passing, especially to see someone as unpretentious yet pioneering as Bogdan was.

Her sister Christy Wilson Hoffman is a merchandising consultant with the team, and she is also survived by her other sister, Edith.
