Linda’s career was mainly in retail and customer service. Linda retired in 2014. Her 17 years at Costco she had such a positive impact on her co-workers, the members and their families. She had a smile that would light up a room and was so sincere. The love she had for her family was unconditional. Linda cherished every minute she could spend with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Linda loved singing;some of her favorite songs were Tanya Tucker’s Delta Dawn, One day at a time by Christy Lane and Happiest Girl in the whole USA by Donna Fargo, her voice was so beautiful. Through the years Linda and Dewey enjoyed going to many classic car shows in Dewey’s 1949 Ford Coupe. Linda loved to read, knit and do crafts.
Due to Linda’s wishes we will not be having a formal service. We are planning to hold a celebration of life with just family at a later date. Mom, we know you are on the wings of a butterfly watching over all of us. We are heart broken you are gone and will miss you so much. There is no more pain and suffering for you and may the colors you look upon be as beautiful as you.
