In addition, to taking care of her family, Linda worked in delivery and merchandising for Frito-Lay for 26 years; she was looking forward to retiring very soon. She was a proud member of the Woodville Community where she chose to live and raise her family for over 40 years. She also had a great appreciation for the outdoors and was a member of the Arbor Day Foundation. Linda enjoyed kayaking, gardening, and taking naps under her gazebo at home. Her greatest joys were her family, she enjoyed drives to the lake with her mom, spending time with her husband and children, and lunches with her close friend Barb. But it was her grandchildren who affectionately knew her as “Mema” that she loved spending time with the most.
