Linda was a walking angel on Earth to her husband and family, as well as every person she had the opportunity to befriend in her lifetime. She carried herself with such grace as she showed love and compassion to the people she loved and cared for. Linda was a devoted wife who loved and provided for her husband during their 59 years of marriage. She was a strong and loving mother who raised two beautiful and healthy men and taught them how to be loving, tender providers for their future spouses and families.
“God needed a new angel to tend to his flowers, and he chose you. We were not ready, but we will tend to your gardens here until we are called home too.”
