Linda loved to shop and was always boasting about the bargains she found! She had quite a flair for fashion and always dressed her best. Home decorating was another area that she loved and was very talented at. She was the life of the party and loved music, dancing, and spending time with family and friends. Linda was also a sports enthusiast. She traveled to her son’s and grandchildren’s sporting events and was forever their biggest fan! Linda cared deeply for her family and her friends. She always wanted to dine with a view of the water, and her favorite place to go was The Flying Dutchman. She also loved spending time outdoors. The hill country was one of her favorite places. Visiting her nephew Robert’s ranch was at the top of the list for her. Being in the hill country with her family was her happy place. She leaves behind a legacy of love and a legacy of laughter. She will be missed dearly.
