Linda was the best Grandmother ever. She was so caring and loving every day and every minute. she would always pick me and my brother up after we would get off the bus from school. She would always take us to the park and let us play until our mother got home and then she would take us home. she was amazing and always seemed to know how to make us cheer up.

Linda was the best Great Aunt anyone could ask for. Linda had a heart of gold and family was everything. Some of my fondest memories are as a child going to Dave and Linda’s for Christmas Eve. She was the most gracious host and her house was always so warm and inviting. She would host all 4sisters and their families with everything running so smoothly and never skipping a beat. As I grew up we would chat on the phone and being the person she was, she always knew when something was wrong or troubling me. Whether she was offering her words of wisdom, a shoulder to cry on or just being the wonderful Linda we all knew and loved, I always knew I could count on her. The world lost an amazing woman but her light is still so bright and will shine on in everyone that had the privilege of knowing and loving her. To Dave, Kathy, Billy, The Grandchildren, Joanne, Cheryl and Joyce: Hang on to all of the years Linda made your lives brighter with her laugh, smile, love and encouragement. Her love and light lives on in you all.

Linda was my sister and I will miss her very much. Even though all 4 sisters live in Phoenix, we would meet at McDonald or IHOP once a month or on our birthdays just to stay in touch. I loved this time as we shared something about our kids or family and any challenges we were going through. Family was very special to Linda. Linda had a beautiful heart as it reflected in her life. David as the time goes by, you will value all those special memories of Linda. After 61 years, there will be many. Special Love to David, Kathy, Bill and all the family who loved Linda

My Aunt Linda was an amazing ,kind,sweet lady. She adored her family and always put them first. My 1st real memory of my aunt was when I was really little&kathy jean &I were having a playdate. I put one of Uncle Daves hand weights in the back of a little riding toy &tipped myself over breaking my ring finger. Aunt linda was so caring&attentive. She often had christmas eve family gathering at their house,she sure can throw a party&made the best punch&the house always looked beautiful with decorations ,she also hosted many other celebrations,baby showers,anniversary parties,&alot of other types. Aunt Linda helped alot of people over the years. I was at grandma phyllis house once sleeping alot &when aunt Linda saw me she took me to the doctor&got me on medicine for depression which helped me so much. I have so many memories of my sweet aunt Linda that I could go on&on. She was an angel for sure&we are all better people to have had her in our lives.

My earliest clear memories of Linda were when we moved from California back to Arizona and rented a place in the Creighton School District. Linda would pick me up from daycare after she got off from school and had to take care of me. What a joy for Linda – lol. She was a teen busy talking on our party phone line with her friends. (there were no cell phones and we shared a phone line with two other parties) To get her attention while she was on the phone, I would jump on her bed. She remedied the situation by locking me in the closet so she could talk on the phone in peace. Laughs on her because once Mom found out Linda locked me in the closet, I got a baby kitten out of the deal– lol!
Our Uncle Don worked on a cattle Ranch called the T’s. It was a treat for us when we got to make the long trek to the Ranch travelling the two-lane highway (Black Canyon Freeway/I-17). All the cousins got together, and we would run through the desert playing cowboys and Indians. Linda aspired to be a doctor so she was always our medicine woman (Dr Pigg) and would dress our arrow and gunshot wounds. Because she wanted to be a doctor, she took Latin in high school. And those were her plans until she discovered she fainted at the sight of blood. Later in life, she must have overcome that fear because she gave blood at the blood bank on a regular basis.
Linda liked to watch Dick Clark’s American Bandstand and she monopolized our one black and white TV after school. Pat Boone was one of her favorite singers. Joyce and I wanted cartoons on Wallace & Ladmo so it was a daily battle.
In the ensuing years, Linda initiated our monthly Saturday morning Sister meets so we would not lose touch. Thanks to Linda, it was a fun time of sharing for the 4 little Pigg sisters and kept us connected. For anyone reading this, Linda was an extraordinary lady and will be sorely missed by all those whose life she touched.
Until we meet again.
I love you, Sis!
Cheryl, Sister #3
