    I was a board member at the LaPorte City Community School when Linda was board secretary.  Her sense of humor and wit were something to behold.  She was wise beyond her years, and very dependable with a great work ethic.  She always had a smile with never a complaint.  I will always cherish my memories of the times spent with Linda.  My deepest sympathies to the family.

    Our sympathy and prayers to Linda's family and friends.  She was such a classy lady who always had that smile on her face.  Her work at the school was always the best.  Although many people with similar physical challenges might have found it difficult, Linda always charged forward and did not let the challenges get her down. We will miss her greatly!
