They were able to enjoy 29 years of marriage prior to her passing. Linda loved being a Mom. Her family meant everything to her. She was a mom that knew how to multitask. Cooking, gardening, raising her flowers and vegetables (especially tomatoes), and entertaining guest in her home. Linda did love to travel and always looked her very best whenever she was out or just hanging around the house. She took great pride in her appearance and in everything she did. Christmas was Linda's favorite Holiday. Her decorating skills were second to none. Linda loved her pets (especially her cats) and one Ruffles Anne that she sadly had to say goodbye to.
