    Our sincere condolences to Linda’s entire family. Linda had a heart of gold and was always so friendly. When I ( Gary ) would shop at Wal-Mart, I’d go to her cash register checkout just to say hi to her and let her know she was in my prayers while battling that terrible illness! R.I.P. Linda…you’ve earned your wings!

    I’m so sorry for your loss! I never saw Linda without a smile. She will be missed. Sending hugs and prayers for the family.

    I used to bring Linda home from work, when we would work the same shift at Walmart. That is how I got to know her. Such a sweet woman. She is sadly missed.

    I loved working and seeing Linda at Walmart. She always was positive and in a good mood. She will be deeply missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    One of the sweetest ladies ….many memories delivering her mail,and visiting in Kobasic’s Store…she will be sadly missed…save me some wine in heaven, RIP

    Dear Diane, Donna, Debbie, Nadine, John, Colleen & Valerie,
    My heart goes out to you and your families with deepest sympathy. Linda was such a good person. Like so many others … I’d see Linda at Walmart. We grew up in Gladstone in the 1950’s & 1960’s, therefore, knew each other and each other’s families. Our mothers were classmates. My sister, Jeannie, and Linda were classmates. Donna was one year ahead of me in high school and Cindy was one year behind me. There’s a bond there that will always remain. Linda will be missed by so many of us, however, she will be remembered with great fondness.

    I knew Linda from Kobasics I gave her a picture of my son preschool through graduation!! I would also bring her supper(I lived across the street from the store) if I had enough! Rip Linda!!

    To the Marshall Family,
    So very sorry for your loss, Donna, siblings, and families. Always would get in Linda’s line at Walmart so we could catch up on Gladstone news. Since moving to Marquette had not heard that she was ill. Have known Linda my entire life as we only lived a block away growing up and would always walk past Marshall’s corner on the way to school. I was the crossing guard on that corner and Linda would always stop and chat. A good, cheerful person that I am sure will be missed by many. You are in our thoughts and prayers.
