I cannot express how blessed I am to have had this beautiful woman in my life. All the times she spent sitting outside while we swam, lugging phone books around town in the box truck and zipping us out to roller skate. She was a mom to all of us, all the friends and all the neighborhood kids. She was an amazing mom. Thank you for sharing her. I'm grateful she is a part of my childhood memories that make me warm and happy. As I am grateful for you, Erin Murphy (junker). Sending you and dad lots of love.

So sorry to hear of Linda's passing. I worked with her many years ago at Security Exchange/Flagship and have so many fond and funny memories of those days. Her office became the after work meeting place for us girls...We discussed everything, nothing, was taboo, and solved all the problems of the World with laughs. Sincere condolences to Bill, Erin and to all who loved her. R.I.P. Dear Linda and Thanks for the memories.

I had the pleasure of working with Linda at the old Security Exchange/Flagship Bank. I still remember the day she announced she was going to have her first baby....we were ALL excited and happy for her and Bill. We shared many laughs together in those days. Condolences to her family. R.I.P. Dear Linda.

Linda and I were friends since childhood. We shared our imaginations as only young children can do - especially growing up in such an innocent time. I will always remember Linda being fun to be around, many talents, smart, engaging personality, courageous, and loved by all who knew her. I am blessed to have been her friend, and I will miss her.
