Linda was full of life and loved sharing her optimism and fun spirit with everyone. She worked as a Teacher and Assistant Principal with Cecil County Public Schools for over 25 years. She loved her work, and was respected by her colleagues, many of who became great friends. During retirement, she volunteered with the Cecil County Youth Panel, traveled to visit with friends and family, and honed her card game skills.

She loved her family and friends dearly and will be missed by them in equal measure
