Linda married the love of her life, Richard, on September 27, 1981 in Fort Bridger, Wyoming. The family home was a mad house and there was never a dull moment, as they raised a large blended family, earning her the esteemed title of Master Fly Swatter Ninja. 

Linda enjoyed playing darts on the Bridger Valley Dart League and going to Bingo. No matter what she did, it was generally a family affair because she loved spending time with her children, grand-children and friends and had a way of making each and everyone of us feel genuinely loved and special.
