To know Linda was to love her, she never met a stranger and was kind to everyone. She was a devoted, loving wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend. She was a grandma (Maw Maw) like no other. She loved her family with all of her heart. She was a caretaker by nature as well as by profession. She loved working with the elderly in various roles as a sitter, CNA, LPN.
