Linda was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church in Centerville for many years. She loved her church family very much and always felt bad when she had to miss a service.
Linda had unconditional love for everyone. It did not matter to her who you were or what you had done. She would stick by your side. She spent her life always trying to be there for anyone and everyone who needed it. There was no getting away from her without her getting her hugs in. It didn’t matter if she just met you, she had to have a hug before you left.
