Not only was she a devoted mom, grandmother, and military wife, she loved to help and serve others in the community. She opened her home to women in recovery for book clubs, parties, sleep-overs, tea parties, and you could always count on her to cook plenty of food.
Linda served countless hours at the Southeast Alano Club, diligently doing service work, as well as attending Sunday Worship Services. She enjoyed cooking for dances, special events, and was known for her famous peach cobbler. It was so famous that she was featured in San Diego Voice and Viewpoint for “Linda’s Peach Cobbler and Mo”. She was also actively involved in Celebration of Women Conferences and Family Tree events, this made it possible for others to receive experience, strength and hope. She used these gifts not only in the community, but also at work as an LVN in her professional career for many years as a caregiver.

She was baptized July 28, 1989 at South Bay Pentecostal Church in Chula Vista and attended church on a regular basis. She enjoyed gospel music. Linda loved the Lord and often shared her faith by encouraging others. She loved and enjoyed helping people, but her husband and family were her biggest joy in life. Making sure the family always came together to fellowship with one another throughout the year and on Holidays made her very happy. .
0On several occasions she would remind us of the importance of family and to keep God first in all that we do, no matter what happens He will get us through! Linda also believed immensely in the power of prayer and would encourage us to talk to God through prayer. She enjoyed bible study and her daily devotions. She will be deeply missed but remembered for eternity.
