Linda and I taught together at St. Mary Elementary. We made a great team and I learned so much from her. She was a gifted individual and would do anything for her kids and peers. I remember the tool lessons that her parents helped with, trading classes for PE so we could have a free minute every other week, and talking together about how to best help kids. She will be missed.

Linda was an outstanding teacher with a true heart for Christ. She touched the lives of countless students, parents, and fellow staff. Her gentle but firm resolve made her one others turned to for counsel and inspiration. Her snicker and genuine smile betrayed her harmless, mischievous humor. The Lord has truly blessed each of us for her being in our lives.

I met Linda at the farmer market ! When she came to me wanting to buy some beets. She was so happy when I told her I would get her some . I asked her how much do you need. She Smiled and said a bushel and a bushel for the next week after that! I asked her what she was going to make! She said Pickled beets and eggs for her family. She said that her family loved them and she loved making them . She said that they would fight over them. She told me in September when I took her the last of the beets. That it would be the last time she would need any. RIP My friend so glad we meat and share so many memories!

supercalifragilisticexpialidocious, monster cookies, monkey bread, stories at the loft, fun with science, and the fact that everyone should know what basic tools are and how to use them are just some of the many memories. Thank you Miss Zahm for all of the wonderful memories you helped create, you will truly be missed.

Absolutely my all time favorite teacher. Taught me so so so very much. Loved all of us like her own.
We had a reading loft. Mailboxes of our own. You could recycle your homework until you got an A. She read books to us a chapter or more a day like Moby dick and I could have listened to her read forever!!! She had movie Fridays where her parents brought in slides from their vacations and we ate popcorn and had Pepsi and life was fabulous!!! She was funny and interesting and kind and one of the most beautiful persons I will have ever known.
What a loss to so many...what a gain to heaven🙏❤✌
I respected her so much that I told her all this years back and that I could never be her FB friend bc I respected her so much I would never want her to see a word out of my mouth she would be disappointed in. We had a laugh and that was that.
Fly high angel❤❤❤
Thank you Linda for 3rd grade at St Mary's Catholic being a grade I didn't want to ever leave❤❤❤
Love, Cindy(havent spelled it that way since I was 12.....for you...there's that little girl Cindy in me being who I was)

Ms. Zahm was the best 3rd grade teacher anyone could ask for!
I have so many fond memories of her. (Teaching her students the main tools in a toolbox really was helpful in life.)
Sorry to hear of the loss of such a wonderful woman. Sending thoughts and prayers to the Zahm Family.

Linda was the greatest teacher I ever had because her spirit was always high and she was always so helpful in every situation. She always had a smile on her face. I will never forget you. You made second grade fun by giving us monopoly money to buy items in an auction every Friday when we would get a good grade on homework.
