Linda’s most cherished treasure was her family and friends and spending time with them. Linda will be missed dearly by all who were fortunate to be a part of her life. Linda was selfless and silly with an infectious laugh. She was always the first to lend a hand and became a servant to all she encountered. She was creative and many were encouraged by her hand made cards and crafts. She considered her life’s work complete once she had attended her grandchildren’s baptisms at Real Life Church Austin.
