She married Bobby Gene McLaughlin and later married Thomas Minney. From these unions, Linda was blessed with eight children to call her own. Linda mostly served her family as a homemaker although she spent three years as a laborer for Ford Motor Company.
She was outgoing and funny with a great personality and a wonderful sense of humor. It could even be said that Linda talked a lot.

She enjoyed playing card games especially solitaire, watching television, but more than anything cooking, and spending time with her grandchildren.
