Linda was always ready for dancing and greeting all the other dancers. Most of the regulars were acquainted with Linda's friendly greetings and genuine caring spirit. Even when not as healthy as she preferred, she tried to dance and enjoy the moment but she knew when it was time to head home.
She loved to pick pecans from her yard and share with her friends. We will miss her spirit for life.
Our sympathies to Mike and her family. She loved and spoke of you often. Even when she griped a little, she loved you unconditionally for loving her so much that her heart was full of joy.
