Sympathy to all the family. I, Dorothy, served the First Christian Church for 27 years as secretary, and during that time was able to meet and get to know both Ed and Linda. Richard also became acquainted with Ed and Linda. They were special individuals, and we were privileged to have their friendship. May they rest in peace. Richard & Dorothy Mahan

Linda's son, Mike, was one of my baseball coaches going through the youth baseball league. Mike was a great coach and still is.

His mom would be at the games quite often to support Mike and us. She was very kind and always seemed to have a smile.

Thoughts and prayers to the entire family. Rest in Peace Linda.

Growing up in Greensburg and the First Christian Church was so special and people like Linda were certainly major reasons why. She always had a smile and a kind word; always would make sure when we were playing basketball that she offered us something to drink; always encouraged the youth of the church and mostly made us always feel so welcome and comfortable. I can remember so many smiles that were so genuine from so many years ago. God Bless the family and take comfort knowing Linda is at peace resting in the arms of our heavenly father.
