  1. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. I am saddened by the news of Linda’s passing. i got to know Linda through the family and she was always taking pictures at family events and I best remember her for all the love she had of her family. She spoiled her great nephews with love and gifts and always took awesome photos. One memory I have of her is at the Food Truck event at the fairgrounds in Lake County and recently at the College of Lake County. You are an angel watching over your family ever after.

  2. I worked with Linda for year in the Library. Linda was very sweet person and a conscientious employee. Sorry to hear of her passing.
    My Deepest Sympathy to Linda’s family.

  3. Linda and I worked in the same department at the College of Lake County. We enjoyed our talks of movies and tv watching. She was so smart and was interested in many subjects. Sitting across from her in the backroom of the library, we would hash out many topics. She would always be interested and wanted to know more about whatever we discussed. She was kind hearted and was the first to donate to good causes. Over the last 9 years, we would enjoy breakfast once a month and continued our discussions. She was a good friend and I will miss her and her perspective and her sense of humor.

  4. I !met Linda when we both worked at CLC library. I admired her intelligence, love of travel and generosity. I was lucky to have enjoyed her friendship and be her travel companion on several occasions. Her enthusiasm and willingness to explore were contagious. She even convinced me to go on a rollercoaster at DisneyLand. I am fearful of ride, so she chose a kiddie one. I still screamed by head off but thanks to her I can say I’ve been on a rollercoaster.
    RIP my friend.

  5. Although Linda and I didn’t work in the same department, we were both long time employees and had many interactions throughout those years. I remember Linda as very sweet and kind. When we worked at CLC it was like one large family. My heart goes out to all her loved ones in their loss. May memories of Linda bring great comfort to her family.
