Linda worked as a manager at the gaming parlor, The Rabbit Hole.

Linda’s interests were as diverse as they were passionate. She had a love for playing slots, which was matched only by her enthusiasm for shopping for shoes, purses, and decorations. Linda had an eye for style and took great pleasure in decorating her home for every holiday, creating a festive and welcoming atmosphere for all who visited.

Family trips were a source of great joy for Linda, with Orange Beach, AL, Orlando, FL, and Pigeon Forge, TN holding special places in her heart as destinations of memorable adventures. Her culinary skills shone in the kitchen, where she enjoyed cooking and was particularly fond of baking sweet treats for her loved ones. Linda’s generosity and love were most evident in the time she spent with her family, especially her cherished grandchildren, who will carry the sweetness of her baking and the warmth of her love with them always.

Linda’s life was a testament to the power of love, family, and friendship, and she will be remembered for her bright smile, her generous heart, and the unwavering love she had for her family.
