My daughter and I were heartbroken to hear of the passing of dear Linda. For several years, we would come to Clear Lake for a week. We met Linda and Joe through an auction, where I got to go on a lake cruise with them. Each year we went back, Linda and Joe would welcome us in to their home and Joe would give my daughter a special rock. What an amazing couple! We will always remember Linda's kind heart and her wonderful smile. May loving memories bring you all peace.

I met Linda at North Side High School and twenty some years later she married Joe, whom I worked with at Mutual Security Life Insurance Company. My heart is broken over her untimely death. My thoughts and prayers will continue to be with Joe and their family and friends. You will be missed at our class reunions, Linda.

Linda was our daughter's babysitter for many years. She cared for Michelle as her own and Michelle called her "second Mom". Linda was a wonderful lady and part of our family until her untimely death. She will be missed.

Linda and Joe were instrumental in showing us the Clear Lake experience. Linda’s hospitality will always be remembered. They accepted us into thier family with open arms. We will never forget the beautiful boat rides and the fun family picnics, and the special dishes that Linda brought to the table. She was truly First Lady of Clear Lake Marina. You will be missed Mrs Driver.
