Linda was born April 13, 1965 in Rotan. She was the daughter of Jose Benigno and Gloria (Campos) Almanza. She married Rodolfo Dimas Vera Sr. on March 4, 1984. Linda was a wonderful mother, wife, and grandmother. She was strong willed and was always willing to give of herself to help others. Linda's grandchildren were the light of her life. She loved spending time outside in her custom-built pergola, enjoying drinks, food, and family. Linda was a wonderful and dutiful wife. She never met a stranger and made everyone feel welcome in her home. She wanted to help, whether it was with a phone call, text, or home visit. Linda was definitely the pilar of strength in the Vera family. She taught her children to carry that strength in their lives. We will always remember her strength, her courage, her endless love to her family and others. Linda had a true servant's heart. The family will never forget the love and fun she created. Linda surpassed many, and she faithfully gave her life to make a better future. Well done, mama. Enter your rest, we love you, we adore you, and your legacy and love lives on, in this life and the next.
