Linda was a technician with P & G of Lima. Her life revolved around her family, especially her grandchildren. She was an extraordinary person always being positive and upbeat. Because she was such a positive role model, she was asked to give a speech for the Relay for Life Survivor Dinner. People were drawn to her and found her to be very inspirational. She loved animals, enjoyed gardening, working with flowers and landscaping. Other hobbies included reading, being ornery and entertaining. Linda will be missed but would want everyone to remember the happy times and how she loved life.
