Linda was a member of the Church of Latter Day Saints and loved the many callings she received throughout the years. Linda enjoyed spending time with her friends in the Branch as well as her many friends in SunRiver.
Linda had a heart to help, and Linda’s attitude and outlook on life was much to be admired. She was a beautiful woman of grace, elegance and poise, with a wonderful balance of silliness and humor.
