She worked as the cook for the Snowflake School District for 23 years and was a friendly and familiar face to many of Snowflake's youth. In addition to her work with the school district, Linda was also a devoted homemaker. Her family was her life and she enjoyed seeing to the individual needs of each member of it. She truly was a loving wife, caring mother and fun grandma. She enjoyed camping with her family at various places throughout the state. Linda also was a "hands-on" person and loved her scrapbooking activities, sewing projects as well as canning food throughout the year.

She and her husband, Glen, even served a mission together for The Church in Young, Arizona, where she quickly became a friend to all that she met.
