I met Linda back in 1981 when we started rehearsals for City Lites at the Flamingo Hilton. She quickly became one of my absolute favorite wardrobe ladies. She was so fun and had such a quick wit.
She was always so caring and loving.
I kept in touch with her through the years and then of course with the advent of Facebook it became easy to check in.
Many years later she designed some fabulous saloon girl costumes for a corporate event. My company, J & D Entertainment still has them to this day. She new how to make a long lasting costumed.
She was a joy to know and I have many, many fond memories of this lovely lady! God Speed Friend.

I met Linda at many National Costumers Association conventions. She always shared her wisdom with me and other members. I visited her store in Las Vegas. Her unassuming and sweet disposition will be remembered. Rest in peace Linda.

To my Grams,
I was introduced to you 33 years ago by your oldest son, Tim.
Since then, as Tim’s partner in life, you have accepted me as part of your family. You with Papa, have been very kind and generous of your love for me. I will never forget you and our conversations about travel, family and your passion. I love you very much, and so very happy that you and the love of your life, Bobbie Dale (Papa) are now together in heaven, and looking over your Emerson family.
All my love,

Aunt Linda you were my favorite Aunt. You and Uncle Bob were so good to me and included me in activities with my cousins. I remember being proud, you always sewed for my sisters, and then one Christmas you made me that race car shirt and I really loved it. It was very sad when you had to live without Uncle Bob and through the pandemic. I’m happy you together now.
Love Slate

Words can’t describe the gratitude in my heart that the All Knowing Lord chose you for my sister. I am so proud of you and the many accomplishments I have watched you achieve. I wish our lives had allowed us to live in a closer proximity. It feels as though we had more of life to share. I love to imagine you and your true sweetheart Bobbie reunited as well as our loved ones that went before. My Love Forever
