She was employed at UCIP as a supervisor of the residential department until the facility closed. She then was a home host provider for UCIP. She also worked for Voices for Independence until she became disabled.
Linda was very devoted to Robert, her children and grandchildren. She loved and enjoyed her dog King and cat Shadow. She enjoyed crocheting very intricate beautiful afghans, which she gave as gifts to family and friends. She enjoyed playing bingo. She was a member of the New Brotherhood Motorcycle Club. Linda had the amazing ability to remember everybody's birthdays and would call and wish them a happy birthday. Whenever somebody needed a phone number they would call Linda because she remembered the phone numbers of everybody.
