In the early days of The Chamber Linda and I worked on many projects together...
July 4th, Bottom of the Lake, Trade Shows, Ambassadors, really too many to name...doing our part to help this young area grow. Fun, laughter, hard work and then some more laughter. Those were wonderful times. What a beautiful person was Linda Woods and a true friend. Rest In Peace sweet Angel Linda.
With love and prayers, Nancy Wallace

As a news reporter covering Shenandoah I have the great, great fortune to have worked with Linda over many years. I cannot tell you how many times something serious about which I was interviewing Linda devolved into a chorus of laughter wrought from her crazy sense of humor! She was always ready, willing and able to help out with a story or to make a story even better. Linda was a great friend and I was always so very glad we were friends. I know she'll be greatly missed!
