Linda was known to close family members as "Bitsy" and others simply called her "Granny Linda/Grandmama Linda". Bitsy never met a stranger and would open her door to anyone in need. She loved working with children which led her to become a pre-school teacher for many years. Granny Linda left a lasting impression on every child she met. Some of her favorite hobbies included traveling, reading and showing off her authentic culinary skills.
