She was involved in the Schools Out Program, through the local YMCA. She was also a Girl Scout and Brownie Leader for many years. She loved being around children, but she was most happy when she was with her own children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild.
Linda enjoyed playing solitaire and doing crossword puzzles. She could always find the best deal, whether that be at a local garage sale, or her favorite store: Herbergers.
