Linda is a product of the Memphis City Schools District. She attended Corry Junior High School where she was the class valedictorian. She graduated from The Central High School in 1970 where she was a member of the National Honor Society, Junior Achievement, Quill and Scroll (an international journalism honor society), Mu Alpha Theta (a mathematics honor society) and a National Merit Scholar. After high school Linda attended Lake Forrest College in Lake Forrest, Illinois where she received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mathematics and Economics in 1974. While attending Lake Forrest she was selected as one of thirteen students from across the United States to participate in a summer actuarial program at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania to promote the actuarial profession among Blacks. Her education continued at Kellar Graduate School of Management where she received a Master of Arts degree in 1996. She then passed the Project Management Institute license/certification exam in 2003 making her a Project Management Professional (PMP). Linda's original career goal was to become an Actuary and to realize her dream she relocated to Omaha, Nebraska in 1976 to accept a position with United of Omaha Life InsuranceCompany. She worked there thirteen years starting as an Actuarial Analyst and later as a Marketing Support Supervisor. While employed there she took and passed Actuarial Exams I and II as well as CFP (Certified Financial Planner) Exams I and II. But her passion started developing to become a Project Manager.

After receiving her Master's and PMP license she worked several project management positions with the following companies and clients: Nations Bank, Project Management Services, Inc., Bellsouth, AT&T, Norfolk Southern Railroad, Tufts Health Plans, Liberty Mutual Group Insurance, Toyota, Ajilion Consulting, Wachovia Bank, and Blue Cross Blue Shield. She was also part owner and instructor of CBS Project Management and Consulting with clients that included Georgia Center for NonProfit, Bellsouth, Georgia Perimeter College and AmDocs. After retiring due to health issues, Linda still continued to help others with her expertise and vast knowledge of the business world. She spent the last seven years working as Chief Operations Officer/Project Manager for Blake's House of Independence, LLC.

Linda was united in holy matrimony to the love of her life, Willie Cornell Brooks on June 8, 1974 and to this union two sons were born: Rashard Cornell Brooks who lived only eight days and Jeremye Cornell Brooks.

Linda's presence and love will be missed by many including: devoted husband of 47 years, Willie C. Brooks of Grayson, Georgia; her admirable son, Jeremye C. Brooks of New Orleans, Louisiana; her adoring daughter, Christin Elston (Michael) and sweet granddaughter, Giuliana True Elston of Kansas City, Missouri; one brother, Charles Edward Campbell (Verna) of Brunswick, Georgia; two sisters, Beverly Campbell Cook and Deborah Campbell James of Memphis, Tennessee; one uncle, Willie B. Martin (Yvonne) of Collierville, Tennessee; four sister-in-laws, Addie Mae Austin of Memphis, Tennessee, Nancy Brooks and Eunice Dyer of Boston, Massachusetts, and Louise Brooks of New York; and a host of Godchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many many close friends.
