To Linda's family - I worked with Linda from 1972 until she retired. It took awhile to get to know her, but once you did she was an unforgetable character.  So full of life, hard worker, always willing to help.  Loved her family very much.  I respected her and appreciated our work friendship very much.  Missed her when she left.  Please accept my deepest sympathy on losing such a special perosn. I will remember her fondly.  

Sincerely, Pat Willis

I was so sorry to read about Linda's passing. We worked together at Pepperidge Farm for many years. I have lots of memories of laughing & having fun with her. She was a real character. I left there in 1988 but I often thought of Linda & remembered the good times we had. I hope her family finds comfort in the good memories that they have, too.
