  1. I am so sorry for your loss! I loved Linda and so enjoyed going to the polka festivals with her! Prayers For all! Love , Teri Watson

  2. Linda was known as “Mom” to me and actually seemed like my 2nd Mother. Often she was up for an adventure, so we went on a Marble Dig. As Brenda, Kelly & I dug , Mom insisted on inspecting and carrying the booty. Linda will live on in our hearts, thru all knew her.❤️❤️🌈

  3. Mom was a real trooper. She was open to even crazy adventures. She was front & center digging for old marbles at the Marble King factory! We had 2 hrs to dig & find!! She left a family just like her, kind, funny, learning new things every day. I am blessed because I knew her & cherish her family.❤️❤️🎶 Sarah Fox
