Ms. Burris was a member of St. Augustine of Canterbury Episcopal Church. She served on the Board of Directors of the Women's Club since 2009 and was responsible for many of the club awards. She loved keeping close contact with club members by calling them on the phone to spread her love and laughter. Linda worked very hard to establish the Eagle Pointe Home Owners Association and was a long time board member. She was the contact person for the Neighborhood Watch Program. The family would like to thank everyone for the love they have shown following her passing including her neighbors of Eagle Pointe.
