She is also survived by numerous Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, and Nephews. Linda is preceded in death by her parents, her loving and nurturing stepfather Clifford Hanson, her brother Charlie Dela Cruz and her sister Alberta Dela Cruz. Linda was a very special person to all who knew her and she will be missed greatly. She was a devoted wife, a loving mother, and a very proud grandmother. She will be remembered for her big, beautiful smile and her infectious personality. Her enthusiastic and vibrant personality will live on in our hearts forever. Linda was deeply involved with many activities and she touched so many people throughout her life. Her children, her family, and her friends were the most important things in her life. She loved her children immensely and would volunteer to help with anything at the drop of a hat. She will forever be remembered for her awesome brownies, her impromptu pool parties, her signature ball cap, and Taco Cabana happy hours. Her many hobbies included photography, scrapbooking, reading, travel, and spending time with her family and friends. Linda loved being a proud Hawaiian and always longed for her next trip to the Islands. Her large extended family and her many wonderful friends will miss her wit, her good humor, her warm beautiful smile, and her caring personality. A Memorial Service in celebration of Linda's life will be held at Bastrop Christian Outreach Center, 1096 Highway 71 East, Bastrop, Texas on April 6, 2013 at 2:00 PM.
