Linda was a loving, kind, caring and nurturing wife, mother, stepmother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. She was an amazing woman. She loved all animals, especially her horse Brandy, cats, dogs, and birds. She cared for and made sure food was out for cats and birds– in the cold weather. Her and her affectionate husband enjoyed bird watching, especially their hummingbirds that returned each season. She was a Christian woman with a long lifetime relationship with God and enjoyed her fellowship at New Beginnings in Baldwinsville, New York led by Pastor Todd and Pastor Yolanda Reddens.
