I was saddened to learn of Linda's passing. I have known Linda since 4th grade at Bunker and in fact, she was my first girlfriend in 5th or 6th grade. While working on the class reunions, we re-connected and it was fun knowing all of the place that she had visited, as she was a world traveler.

This past October (2022) my best friend and classmate Jeff Keay, visited Muskegon and stayed with me. Jeff was recovering from some health issues and wanted to meet with our other best friend (Jim Hall, who attended Catholic Central) and married to our classmate Pam (Clark) Hall and two classmates that sent him notes of encouragement as he was recovering. They were Star (Heiser) Grevious, and of course Linda. We had a GREAT afternoon and shared some stories of the good old days. I am pleased that we made time for our old friends as you never know when it will be the last time...

Linda was always energetic and willing to help. Her big smile will be missed. RIP my friend.

Linda was an approachable, sacrificial, beautiful human being. Her ability to include others was a wonderful aspect of her relational style. I still she her in a band uniform with a welcoming smile on her face. She maintained that emotional gift relationally into her senior adulthood. A lovely friend.

I had worked with Linda in getting her Family bench on to the bike path many years ago.  When we were asked to move the benches , I got them moved to the DPW building for storage while deciding on a location . Linda wanted to keep the bench in Lakeside , so it did not go to the PM park. I worked with new Director of DPW  and suggested a place at the launch site at Lake shore  and McCracken that was in Lakeside. I asked if the bench could face the sunset and be placed near the bike path near the chalet . The DPW installed a slab and the bench was placed . Linda and Nic saw the bench location for the first time this last summer when here for the reunion. Linda was so thrilled with the location 
She  said her parents would have loved that site.

 I have known Linda since Bunker, long before MHS. Her mother was my Brownie Troop leader. We re-connected after graduation through our class reunions, most particularly the 50th. She was instrumental in compliling hundreds of pictures into a video that we all enjoyed at that event. She was extremely artistic and talented and just a joy to be around. I'm so sorry to hear of her passing.

I ,however, never stoped loving her to this day and the days to come. I hope her family is doing well. goodby Linda you will be missed
