Linda was the matriarch of her family, but ruled that family with love, honesty, and integrity. The one thing everyone that knew her would agree on, is that you could not be with her and not help to feel good about it. With her great sense of humor she was a joy to be around. This was a woman that put her family before herself with unwavering consistency. Francis of Assist said: "It is in giving that we receive", Linda demonstrated this everyday of her life finding joy in giving, asking nothing in return. Her family and friends will carry her in their hearts for the rest of their days.
