Linda was Radio Disc Jockey and of the Baptist faith. She loved music, sewing and crafts. Linda was full of life and always doing something. She had a great radio voice and personality. They called her “Sunshine” and that became her radio name, “Sunshine”. She loved all her children and grand children, always doing something for them. Linda was smart and great at math, in fact she did most of her children’s math homework. If you needed help she was there. If she had something and you needed it, it was yours.
