Linda was a classmate in the MHS class of 1958 and helped to plan several class reunions. She always supported me in my political endeavors and was a cherished friend, I am very sorry about her passing away. She will be missed

Such a sweet neighbor and friend. Always ready with an encouraging word, and so ready to discuss anything related to flowers and gardening. I feel I learned a great deal from her in the short time we knew each other. Treasured in life. May her memory be a blessing.
