Linda loved to travel, was an avid golfer as part of the Women's Golf Association, and sport enthusiast-cheering on the Chief and Broncos.

From the time Linda was one year of age, she and her five older siblings were raised by her single mom in near abject poverty. From this humble beginning, her tenacity and innate abilities made her the mom who would always know what to do in any situation, and a highly valued employee. Her honesty, self-assurance and warm outgoing personality brought her hundreds of long term friendships in the 6 states and 11 cities in which she has lived.
