In addition to being a homemaker, Linda served as Librarian at the New Baden Library and also worked many years for Hallmark. She spent her spare time scrapbooking, crocheting, and doing needlepoint. She loved going to yard sales with her friends; and her biggest passion and devotion were her grandkids. She spent many days and nights helping family when needed; she was a big influence to many of her children’s friends and never met a stranger. Linda will be missed by all who knew her and will always hold a special place in all our hearts.
