I have so many fond memories of Linda and her family. She was an aide at Faribault Manor when I first moved to Faribault, so I got to know her well as I worked the night shift as the RN. Shortly after starting, I became pregnant with my first child, and I was not having any luck finding a day care opening. One night at work she told me about her plan to open a day care in her home and I was thrilled! She provided the best care to my firstborn son, Bryan, and I will always be grateful for her special love for her daycare kids. Linda was such a kind and loving woman, I am blessed to have known her. My condolences and prayers go out to all of you.

Dear Family, We are so sorry to hear of Linda's passing. We got to know her when I was in the Humane Society of Rice County and we were all out trying to save the animals and find good home for them. I know she made lots of people and animals happy when she matched them up together. When my brother Jack passed I got a nice card and note from a friend of mine from Pa, who also I got to know when in the Humane Society. It said "God only wants Roses in Heaven not weeds", well he now has another "Rose in Heaven". God Bless you all. Carl and Jeanie

Linda was a very dear special friend to me. She will be sadly missed. She never had a bad thing to say about anyone. She always saw the good in everyone and she brought out the goodness in the people she knew. I have known Linda and her family for close to 30 years, she did daycare for my sons and we became friends. Linda her family and my family did a lot of camping together, she was a lot of fun. She greatly touch my life with her kindness, understanding and the love she showed to everyone. I was very blessed to have known her and I will miss her. I will truly miss the talks, time together, the camping that our families did together. She may be resting in peace but she will never be forgotten. She taught me a lot and was always there for me. Dale, Joel, Erin I'm here when you need me no matter time of day or night.
