Linda was the eldest of 7 siblings. She was married in 1960 to her high school sweetheart Jerry, until his passing in 2016. They had two children, Dena and Douglas. Linda had many occupations over the years, but her favorite was raising paint horses at her beloved ranch just outside of Bakersfield. The ranch was a favorite of the extended family and all have fond memories of visiting Uncle Jerry and Aunt Linda there. For a short while her ranch, Horse Haven, was considered one of the most beautiful wedding venues in Bakersfield. After Jerry’s passing, Linda moved into town, spending her time gardening and occasionally traveling with Dena and her husband Jeff. Her last big trip was to Egypt for her 80th birthday! Linda loved her family and was able to love on her first great grandson Shiloh born in June 2023.
