Linda worked at Heartbeat of Lima for 14 years and was executive director for the last 12 years. She was scheduled to retire in one month and was looking forward to spending time with her husband of 43 years. She spoke in front of thousands of people each year as a champion for the preborn.
She was a member of the Journey Assembly of God Church. She had 50 years of Sunday school and teaching experience and so loved working with junior high-aged children.
She enjoyed participaing in many different outreaches at the church. Her biggest desire was to share the gospel and help people to come to know Christ.
Some of her fondest memories were the many trips and vacations that she and her family had the chance to experience. Many of the vacations were planned around returning to her southern roots and the state of Kentucky, which she was so proud of.
Above all else, she loved spending time with her grandchildren and considered them her greatest treasures.
Memorials may be made to the Journey Assembly of God Church.
