I have fond memories of Linda. My dad had a farm just down the road from Linda's , ahd he hooked us us. She was a good friend for several summers, then I headed off to Minnesota. I lost track of Linda, but thought often of her. She took me to a revival at her church ( I was probably 16 at the time) where I proudly rededicated by life to God. Linda left a beautiful legacy to her family and friends. Julia Roane Beagan

My condolences to the Echols family. I will always remember the warmth and hospitality of Linda and her husband Paul at a holiday event they hosted in their home. I will carry that memory this holiday season. I worked with Linda for a couple of years before she retired from LA Tech COES.

I met Linda only a few times through the LaTech College of Engineering and Science. She always had a bright smile and was such a warm and thoughtful person who made me feel a tiny bit more joyful from her happiness. I hope all the wonderful memories of Linda will help her friends and family during this period of mourning.

Shane & Amy I am so sorry to hear of Miss Linda’s accident & passing. She was such a wonderful lady whose impact was great on all of us. From those school years with her as a 4-H mom to growing up and having Miss Linda as a Facebook friend from across the miles, I will always have a smile on my face when I think of your mom.

Charles and I are so sorry for your loss! Linda was a special person as you all know! I use to see Linda quite a bit before I went back to work and she could lift my spirits every time. She always knew what I needed to hear! I’d call and say, I need my Linda fix! What a blessing she was with y’all and enjoying life when she passed! We will be praying as y’all develop your new normal in the days to come! We love all of you!
