"Linda was always such a friendly face when our dad was in the care center. She always took the time to visit with him and made us feel that she truly cared. I am sure her gift of caring was felt by many. "

"Linda was a classmate at Titonka High School. Linda was always very friendly and never knew a stranger. I enjoyed catching up when I came back home and visited relatives at the care center. You are now "completely" enjoying your retirement in Heaven! My deepest condolences to her family! Treasure your precious memories!"

"RIP Linda. Worked many years with Linda. What a faithful person. Always remember on Sundays when she was working, Linda would call home to make sure her family was up and ready to go to church even though she wasn't able to join them. Faithful to God and those she cared for."

"So very heart broken to hear of your loss. Working with her at the care center was fun. I always looked forward to seeing her. I loved that lady. God bless each of you & may you find comfort & peace. "

"I remember when Linda was a teenager and she would spend a week or so on our farm. I so looked forward to her visits. No matter if we were working, playing, or having a cup of coffee (not tea), I always enjoyed doing whatever she was doing. One summer while we were swinging from an old elm tree, we decided to make various geometric patterns while we were swinging. Unfortunately, Kathy got in between the board of the swing and the tree. Kathy needed several stitches and because Linda was there, Kathy got the scolding for not paying attention. May God be with you Linda and your family."
