She attended Ashmore Grade School, graduated from Charleston High School, and went on to Lake Land College where she achieved an associate degree in Secretarial Science. She got her first job at a little restaurant in Ashmore working as a waitress and cook. She went on to wait tables at the Moose in Charleston, and also worked in the factory and drugstore.
Linda enjoyed playing bingo, reading the newspaper, sitting outside enjoying the fresh air, and spending time with her family.
