Linda worked for a time for a local bakery and then with Hewlett Packard until she began to build a family and then became a stay at home mother.
Linda’s family and friends were extremely important to her. She would always be doing things for others by baking and decorating cakes, making quilts, afghans, blankets, cross stitch, children’s sweaters, knitted baby caps for newborns, and more for her friends and others. Linda also loved the Lord and going to church.
