Linda was a loving wife, mother and grandmother. She loved caring for others and spent several years as a nurse until retirement. She also worked as a cook at the K of C Hall in Mount Carmel where she made many friendships. Linda enjoyed being in her kitchen; cooking and baking for others. She was the happiest when she was together with family having family dinners and cookouts. Linda’s favorite place was being at the beach. She loved to sit on the back deck and listen to the waves, and watch the dolphins. Linda also found peace walking the beach and looking for seashells. Linda will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
