Linda was a great neighbor when we were younger and lived next door. She was always so good to my parents also throughout the years even after we grew up and moved away from home. She was a good Christian woman and will be missed by many.
Our Condolences to all of the family and her friends. Prayers for all.

Sincerely, Shirley and Joseph Kocour
