Linda graduated from Cumberland Valley High School as part of the Class of 1962 and from Carlisle School of Nursing with a degree in Licensed Practical Nursing.  She was an LPN at Carlisle Hospital for 7 years and ultimately retired from Susquehanna Valley Credit Union in 2000 after over 20 years of service working as a Member Services Manager.  Linda was a member of Mechanicsburg Presbyterian Church in Mechanicsburg for over 15 years, where she served as a deacon and was a member of the welcoming committee.

Linda loved to travel.  A cruise to Bermuda with her family was her favorite.  Other traveling highlights were a trip to Italy and visiting the National Parks out west.  While at her home in Ocean City, MD, Linda enjoyed the ocean and liked spending time at the beach.  Linda lived for her grandchildren, family, and friends.  She went to every event and activity that her grandchildren participated in.  Linda cherished her family and was a loving wife and a devoted mother.  Her children always felt loved.   She will be deeply missed.
