Linda and I shared a room once and she was a wonderful roomie. We also gave her a ride back and forth to functions at a WV Steak Fry. She was so very thankful, so much so she bought our Grandson gifts. We were not close friends but in her company, she made you feel as though we were. What a beautiful picture of her on the obituary. She will be missed by all who knew her! So sorry for your loss.

Linda exemplified so many lines of ourJaycee Creed. She made friends everywhere she went and a lot of that was due to her quirky sense of humor. I will think of her every time I wear the lanyard she made for me. Faith in God.

~ Hal and Rita Bowles

Linda was a good friend that always attended every event with the JCI senate. She represented the Canadaian Senate on all her trips and she did it with spirit and dedication. She will be missed.

A well lived life full of good friends and fond memories. Linda will be long remembered.

~ Mary & Earl Sawyer

Linda and I worked together on the evening shifts at a home care office. She was organized, knowledgeable and a "creature of habit".... very particular about her work... which I learned to love quickly (because I'm the same way!). She loved sharing her experiences with travel and friendships, and was so proud of her involvement with the Jaycees. I'm very sorry to hear about her recent passing and send my sincere condolences to her loved ones.
