Linda balanced her long workdays with television marathons, watching all the major networks and the game show channel. Her caring nature extended beyond her employment as a home healthcare aide. Whenever someone in her family was in ill, Linda, would ensure they had everything they needed to stay comfortable and get well.

She looked forward to an annual trip to Caseville in the “thumb” to camp, swim, kayak, and cook out with her family.
