Linda was a dedicated employee of Blacksburg Middle School, where she “ran the show” for 25 years. She greatly enjoyed teaching the children religious education as a member of the Catholic Church of the Redeemer. Linda was always crafty; she enjoyed sewing, quilting, dancing, gardening and working outside. She was always the epitome of selfless love; ready and willing to lend an ear to anyone in need.
