She also spent many years training dogs and greatly enjoyed seeing her student’s success.  She always had a good story or two to tell and man did she love sharing those stories with all those grand kids.  Linda was known far and wide for her “cooking out of the kitchen” meals. Some of you may have had that tamale pie.
