Her love for those special individuals at the Utah State Developmental Center showed as she returned as a volunteer worker in her later years. She was a loving mother and an even better grandma. Linda’s heart was broken when she had to bury two of her children, however she had a perfect knowledge of the plan of salvation and she knew that she would see them again someday.
