Linda attended Cochrane-Fountain City Schools, graduating with the C-FC high school class of 1974.
She was employed in various departments at TRW in Winona. Her time at TRW spanned 38 years. Following her retirement from TRW, Linda obtained her Commercial Driver’s License and began her personal dream of driving semi, which she did for Silver Eagle Trucking of Minnesota City. Linda was so proud of her purple rig.
Linda enjoyed her time wintering in Mission, TX. Other pastimes included shooting pool, a good night of karaoke, cheering on the Green Bay Packers or playing an occasional scratch off.
Linda’s all-time greatest enjoyment of all was for family. Her heart was full of unconditional love and she will be remembered as the best mom, grandma and great grandma around.
