I remember a positive spirit and zest for life and the omnipresent smile/laugh when talking with her. Seh was a teacher who not only enjoyed her students. but empowered them i think fondly of her and Tim as in my early years of teaching at GHHS I got to know them socially as friends. A positive influence for many, students, colleagues friends and. family. Folks like her are always missed when gone.

Linda was such a beautiful spirit. She always came to class with a positive attitude and a smile on her face. If I close my eyes I can see her big smile with red lipstick. I was a past student of hers. She was my home economics teacher in 7th and 8th grade. She was always there for me when I needed advice and as a young teen mom . She is the reason I did not quit High school when things got tough she was always cheering me on in the stands. I will for always remember you and how special you were. RIP my friend -Godwin Middle School class 2001

My deepest sympathy to the family. Linda was an awesome teacher when I was their at Godwin Heights. She was a great teacher/ counselor to me. I could talk to her about anything and she would list and give me advice. I and like many others lost a part of our hearts on Sept 13th. God bless u all and Linda, until we weet again on the other side RIP .. Joe Herrera Caledonia

Linda was such a light of hope! I especially appreciate how she made a point of reaching out to my sister when she lost her husband and regularly checked in with her. Linda had the best smile, knew how to love, and truly knew how to live well. I will miss her.
