  • Linda was a dear friend. Got to know her when we both worked for Patented Products in Danville. I was a part of our sister-hood card club ladies that have been together for 50 plus years.

  • To my cousin, Steve, and to Linda’s daughters and families.
    Linda was a true lady: gracious, kind, clever, and witty. We have been blessed to know her these last several years and will miss her sunny smile and gentle ways.
    Our sympathies and love.

  • My heart is so very sad and goes out to you Kelly, Mandy, Edith, Steve and all your families and friends that loved Linda as did I. She came into my life in the late 60’s and we shared a special friendship forever. Having left Mt. Vernon 20 years ago we weren’t able to see each other but loved sending each other ornery Birthday cards as our birthdates are just 2 days apart. Her Love of Life, Laughs, Family, Friends & Food made her so Special and she will be missed by so many.
    Our Deepest Sympathy,
    Pat & John Gibbs

  • Dear family of Linda,
    Linda’s delightful person brightened our church, her smiles generous and her presence fun. Special Chinese meals with her and Steve when Sandy and Hans Lenz came to town could be rollicking “ catch-up” as time was limited, but there was no doubt about the fondness in her eyes for friends. I enjoyed knowing her and was blessed by her years among us.
