Linda attended the University of South Carolina and had a successful career in the banking

family, and she had a special talent for making every occasion just “perfect”. Linda’s greatest
joy in life came from being a mother to her devoted girls and being a “Gramma/Cha-Chi” to her
grandchildren, whom she absolutely adored. She leaves behind a legacy of love, generosity, and
selflessness. She will forever be missed.
