Linda was such a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. Her smile lit up the room and people were automatically drawn to her. She had a way of making everyone feel special and loved. Her heart was huge and she was forever doing acts of kindness. She believed strongly in ‘Pay it Forward’ so if you’d like to honor her…this holiday season ‘Pay it Forward.’ She loved her fur babies, friends, family, and Rod and the boys. She was the best sister in law you could ask for. A huge void has been left in our hearts. May you Rest In Peace Linda. We will always love you! ❤️

I am so sorry to hear Linda’s death. I have known Lunda for over 40 years. During this time Linda always had a smile on her face and a fun personality. We had some good laughs over a few drinks discussing some of the people we had to work with. She did a great job of planning our families trips when she was with Travel time. Diane and family members I am so sorry for your loss.

I will miss Linda as she was my liason at the Eden Resort and Suites where I started entertaining in the 80s. She was there starting in 1992 and I always got in touch with her when I needed some answers. Starting in the 2000s, I took our rescued Greyhounds out to see her and she was so estatic about seeing them and petting them. Most recently in 2019, I took our latest Greyhound Pharoah out to see everyone in the office and when Linda sat in one of the big chairs in the office, Pharoah suprised her by backing up and sitting on her lap. I wish I had a picture of the look on her face. She could not believe it. May she rest in peace.

I’m so saddened to hear of Linda’s passing. She was my neighbor at Valleybrook. We shared many laughs and good times. Linda and I were there for our neighbors, Lester & Gloria Miller, when they died. My heartfelt condolences. Rest in peace, my friend…
