Linda loved the outdoors, animals, world-travel, but ultimately she was a wonderful mom. She grew up in Yorktown Heights, NY, and attended Lake Forest College and graduate school at Northeastern Illinois. In 1962, she married James. She was always busy: working, volunteering (Ryerson Woods, Archer School, Sierra Club), chattering (Lordy she could talk!). She is dearly loved and missed.
