Linda will be celebrated in our hearts for her love of family, her quiet charm, sweet smile, gentle laugh, her love of crafts and making beautiful things for others. Sadly she will miss the 50TH Reunion in September 2013 of her beloved 1963 West High School Class but we know she will be there in spirit. Linda will be fondly remembered for the energy, enthusiasm and joy she shared working with her Class Reunion Committee that she served on for many years. Linda traveled her path with a cheerful strength and gracefully overcame the pain of her neuropathy and fought two battles with breast cancer
. She completed her journey with humble appreciation of her many gifts, making her an example of quiet courage.
