She served on the usher board for many years and was employed as a cashier for years with the Walmart Corporation in Waycross, GA.
Linda, as she was affectionately known, furthered her carrier and went on to work at Ware Manor Nursing Home as a CNA and then Satilla Memorial Health Hospital for 17 years as an LPN until she became disabled.
