Linda is survived by her second husband of 24 years, Frank M. Hendricks who lives in Hendersonville, N.C.; a son and daughter from her first marriage, David S.

Linda grew up in Connecticut and Rhode Island and graduated from E.O. Smith High School in Mansfield in 1965. In her younger years, she worked as a chef and a waitress in fine dining establishments throughout Southeastern Connecticut. She then worked for Northeast Utilities at Millstone in Waterford, as a security guard and as secretary of the health physics department.
