Not sure what to say?

After Linda passed, I was sent, by her loving sister, Loretta, an old precious Texasware bowl that she used every day to take her kitchen scraps out to her chickens. It gives me great comfort to think of her doing that and it keeps her fresh in my mind on a daily basis. It is my favorite go-to bowl. RIP, sweet Linda.

I had the distinct and awe inspiring pleasure of knowing and working with Linda in high school. A magnificent soul and spirit. This world is most certainly a better place because of her blessings. Peace and comfort to family and all who loved her.

Odd, but in Montezuma Elementary School, Linda and her freckled smiling face was a year ahead of me. One day with my perpetual skinned knee and tears, she insisted I see the school nurse and waited til the end of her lunch hour to see me smile again. Ok, so I am allergic to stinging mercurochrome and a week later had half of my leg losing skin! I will be forever grateful for Linda's smiles...SO glad I learned she continued good luck.

Linda was a treasure. Absolutely wonderful on stage. I am deeply sorry she is no longer with us.

I've known Linda for 44 years when we met in the theatre department at San Diego State University and she was an impossibly cute, beautiful, ingenue with the voice of an angel. Despite her beauty and talent, she was humble and insecure, just the same.
Over the years, I watched her perform as the leading lady in the Knott's Berry Farm Birdcage Theatre melodramas and later at Lawrence Welk's Dinner Theatre where she starred in Brigadoon, a part she was born to play.


As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life's routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends. I worked with Linda at Scottsdale Insurance Company. Her passion for learning, attention to detail and caring about others development was her number one goal. I enjoyed working with Linda. May she rest in peace.

I am very sorry for your loss. I knew Linda from work at Scottsdale. She was always friendly and helpful. She had good insights in her field and I enjoyed working with her.

Offering my sincere condolences to your family . May you be encouraged from the comforting words at 1 Thessalonians 4:14.
