She collected Fenton Art Glass and butterflies. She enjoyed going to antique shops to purchase her collectibles. She loved taking care of her family and doing things for them.

Dear Aunt Linda,
Last time that I checked you had a perfect score with regard to thinking of your family on holidays and in times of need. Your nephews, nieces, great nephews, great nieces, and our significant others all know that you epitomized generosity. I will always remember the thoughtful gestures that you made to me and my family. You will live forever in our hearts.
Your nephew, Kyle Murray (and family)

Linda was the most caring and generous wife, mother, and friend a person could know.  Nothing was too much for her to do for you.  She showed it in too many ways to mention.  She will sadly be missed.  If heaven is measured by all we did on this earth she will surely glow in the sky brighter than any star.
Love,
Mike and Joyce Appnel
