Linda and John were high school sweethearts who were happily married for 56 years. Together they had many adventures, including living in seven states, raising their three children and many cats, and traveling extensively. We will remember Linda's ready laugh, her enjoyment of people, her intelligence, and her unconditional love for her family. Linda loved spending time with her family, traveling the world with John, and beading and needlecrafts.

Linda held bachelor degrees from the University of Minnesota in Home Economics ('66) and Electrical Engineering ('91). She spent much of her career at Medtronic as a Software Engineer and held one patent. A celebration of life service will be determined at a later date.
