Her family moved to Vallejo, Ca in 1950 where Linda resided there until her move in 1991 to Grass Valley, Ca.

Linda retired from Nevada County in December 2017 after 20 years of service where she made many friends throughout her career. She loved life and always had a smile on her face. She enjoyed cooking for her friends and family and loved making sure everyone was fed. She was full of spunk & energy, always running circles around everyone. Her sense of humor & contagious laugh can make anyone smile. With the the biggest heart and warmest soul, everyone was lucky to have had their lives touched by her. She will be deeply missed forever by many & loved by all. Life will not be the same without her. Memorial service to follow at a later date. If anyone would like to make any donations, Linda was a habitual donator to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital or Pancreatic Cancer Action Network in her memory in lieu of flowers.
