After being diagnosed with a chronic illness she decided to become a home care provider with her daughter in their home. She was always helping others whenever she could. Linda loved country music and, boy, could she sing. Linda was the mother of the world and loved helping and caring for others it was her passion along with her excellent cooking. She is going to be greatly missed by so many people that she has touched throughout the years, but she is in a better place now and her suffering has subsided. Her spirit will continue to live on through her one and only confident, her daughter who has been by her side every day. Linda was also a very savvy shopper, if there was a deal to be found, she’d find it. She loved coupon shopping and clearance sections. Linda loved to cook. It gave her great pleasure to know that people enjoyed her food. She also enjoyed crocheting afghans for local raffles and other events. She also had a passion for VW bugs.
