Linda was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother who took great joy in spending time with her family. She recently celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary. A great lover of baseball, Linda took many trips to see her beloved Braves play in Atlanta, Georgia. These are memories that her family will cherish forever.
