Linda was born May 17, 1950, in Pueblo, Colorado. She attended the University of Southern Colorado, majoring in Mass Communication and was one semester shy of her B.A. Because Linda majored in Mass Communication, one of her favorite hobbies was to correct everyone’s grammatical errors, especially her children’s. As a devoted homemaker, she enjoyed her being with her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She was talented at making a delicious meal out of very little which she also had a knack at burning and forcing everyone to choke down a wonderfully spiced charcoal briquette. This was usually due to her walking away and forgetting about dinner. It was common to hear her say “Didn’t you smell it burning?” and a reply of “Yes, by then it was too late!” Linda was goofy, loving, imperfect, self-sacrificing and a little bit nuts but she was ours and we loved her!
Linda was a Fundamental Baptist and was a member of Rocky Mountain Baptist Church and was also a member of the NRA.
Linda’s final resting place is in the Beulah Cemetery, in Beulah, Colorado.
