Linda was a wonderful mentor and colleague. Her beautiful smile, lovely personality, and patient demeanor made her a teacher and friend who will never be forgotten. Her time with us was a blessing. My sympathy to her children and grandchildren, as well as her brother and sisters.

I was so sorry to hear of Linda's death. I taught with Linda for many years in the Upper
Perk School District. She was a great lady and friend. We shared some good times.
