Her family and friends will miss Linda dearly.

She was predeceased by her husband Claude, her parents; her brothers, William, Victor, Carl, Albert; and her sisters, Louise, Liz, Martha, and Lina.

Linda was very proud of her Finnish heritage, and was an active member of the Harrison Lutheran Church, and a board member on the Harrison Lutheran Cemetery Association.
