She cherished her trips with Richard to Scottsdale, AZ several times a year to be poolside in the sun. She enjoyed entertaining at her home for friends and was always the life of the party. You would never catch Linda without her beautiful smile on her face. This world will never be the same without her caring, fun loving and amazing soul who put everyone before herself.
