Linda was a wonderful daughter, sister, mother, grandma, great grandma and aunt. She had an unwavering love for her family, and no matter what was needed, she was always happy to help out. Linda not only raised her own children, but she was a caretaker for her mother and father for many years, and she helped raise her nieces and nephews, and all of her grandchildren. Linda faced a lot of challenges in her life, and yet, she managed to keep her priorities straight. Nothing was more important to her than showing her family unconditional love and keeping her faith. This s a wonderful example to follow. Keep focused on what is truly important, not only when life is easy, but when it’s difficult too. Linda loved visiting the mountains, watching HGTV and she loved collecting angels. Linda will be dearly missed and was deeply loved by her children, their families and her sisters and brothers.
When Linda’s health allowed her to, she attended Trinity Church of God of Prophecy.
