Linda had her own house-cleaning business which she operated until just recently. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and taught Sunday School there when her kids were young. Linda loved to garden; her passion was mowing the lawn! She loved her geese and her cats, camping and fishing. Linda was an excellent flower arranger and did beautiful embroidery work. She enjoyed entering in the county fair’s open class and won many awards for needlework, vegetable gardening and flower arranging.
