I knew and worked with Linda both as a student and later as director of college relations at St. Mary of the Plains College. She could outwork anyone and her laughter and sense of humor made even the tough days following the college's closing a bit better to endure. She was gracious, supportive to both students and staff and her smile was a beacon to all. May she rest in peace and may you find comfort in knowing what a delight she was.
