She directed him in the way he should go and loved him greatly. Linda was a private person, but had an adventurous spirit. She was an accomplished gardener with the skill and talent to grow many beautiful flowers from seedlings and clippings which would flourish and grow in her beautiful garden. Her flower beds were always filled with many colors just like the rainbow. Linda loved animals especially her dogs and found homes for those that had been abandoned. She was a dedicated individual who loved her family and who was passionate about encouraging people to achieve their goals in life, but most of all, to be happy in whatever you do. She is a member of Rock Creek Baptist Church in Shawnee, OK.. A life celebration is scheduled for February, 29th 2020 at Rock Creek Baptist Church, with a reception following.
