She worked several jobs during her life at Blue Bird Body Company, Briggs and Stratton, and Trane but the job she loved the most was being a wife to Lewis and mother to her two children Darryl Lewis and Helen Renee. She had two sisters, Wendell Cox (James) of Tampa, FL and Teresa Jarvis (Gary) of Helen, GA.  She and Lewis had 5 grandchildren Ashley Frye, Emily Frye, Ady Hobbs, Noah Hobbs, and Aaron Hobbs.

She spent her life working hard and taking care of her family. She loved nothing more than spending time with her children, grandchildren and her husband. She was always there for them for anything they needed and was a devoted and loving mother, grandmother and wife until her dying day.

Lewis and Linda spent a life of love and laughter together. They always loved camping with their dog "little Bit". She loved to dance and was always singing or humming a tune. She loved her life and would not have changed it for anything.

She leaves behind a cherished legacy of hard work, love, and caring for her family. She spent a lifetime loving and giving to her family. She will be sorely missed and always loved. She will always be "mama".
