Linda enjoyed working early on at J M Korn Advertising in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, meeting husband Don while riding the train into Philadelphia. She also worked at Hatchell Brothers Construction in Albuquerque as an office manager and as a bus driver for the Albuquerque school system later on. Linda enjoyed her family, visiting new places and meeting new people, almost always forming new friendships along the way. Even in the ICU, her friendly personality had the nurses and doctors looking forward to visiting her room making them laugh with a good story. She also enjoyed gardening and giving "ear rubs" to many cats and dogs over the years. Linda was also quite the artist and while she never pursued this talent as a career, the nieces and nephews always enjoyed receiveing one of her "little doodles". Above everything, she loved her family, always passing on stories of her grandkids "little Mac" and Jake. Linda was an amazing mom to Mike, grandmother, aunt, the best sister and friends to those lucky enough to know her. She will be greatly missed.
