  • Linda was well Linda. She was a very outspoken person but had a huge heart. She did a lot for people and went out of her way. She and her late husband Chuck went above and beyond and helped my parents are few years ago when they were in need and I could never thank them enough for what they did, and I will always consider them family.

    I met Linda @ the MT. Vernon colt football field. I had the pleasure of having Jordan on my cheer squad. Linda was always there & eager to help in any way she could. She had a way of making your feel like you’ve known her all your life & feel comfortable talking to her about everything. R. I.P. Linda you will be missed by many.

  • So sorry to hear about Linda. Enjoyed knowing her when she worked at StRt 95 as a waitress. My late husband Don enjoyed teasing her. Last time I seen Linda was at Don’s viewing. She will be missed.

  • Jordyn,

    Sorry to hear about the loss of your grandmother. I met you and Linda when you attended Head Start in Centerburg. It was a fun time; your grandmother was always there for you! I am glad to of known your grandmother personally outside of the classroom. I am glad to have taken time to be her friend when she needed it. You remind me so much of your grandmother. How awesome!!!
