Linda was a compassionate and caring lady. She brought a ray of sunshine to all of her patients she cared for while working as a nurse’s aid at Odin Healthcare for many years. Linda was a faithful member of Greenview Christian Church in Centralia. She took great pride in her nails and loved having a manicure and making them beautiful. Linda enjoyed the outdoors and could be found planting flowers to bring pretty color to her garden. Linda doted on babies and was the first to offer her help in holding and loving on the little bundles of joy, threatening to adopt them. She was a true animal lover, having a huge heart for all animals. Linda thought the world of her precious dog and constant companion, Macie Jo. Linda will be remembered by all for her gentleness and loving ways toward all she knew and loved.
