Linda was a beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. Linda spent many years working for Hewlett-Packard before her retirement and was a devoted employee and hard working machine operator. She loved spending time with her family and loved them with her whole heart. Linda was known for her wonderful cooking. She enjoyed listening to her favorites Willie Nelson, Elvis, Patsy Cline and Tammy Wynette while making her delicious Eggplant Parmesan, Stuffed Shells, Chicken Gumbo and Mexican food.
