They had 13 great years together and spent their favorite hours fishing the local lakes together.
Linda had many hobbies including crafts, bowling, fishing and especially singing. Through the years, she sang for her family members, sang for the kids on her school bus, sang for the residents at the Morton Care Center and as of late, sang with the Big Bottom Drifters at their jam sessions. Lindas love of sports was legendary. She attended the sporting events of her kids and grandkids. She played and coached softball in the community. She loved the Mariners and the Seahawks and never missed a game!
Linda had many friends in the Packwood community including her Blantons Market family, the Warner family members and especially the Redfield family. She loved all of the people that she served at the store with her big smile and her laugh. She loved you all.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Linda in the new year.
