Linna was a devout Christian and long-time member of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Salem. She enjoyed gardening, her flowers, reading her bible, gospel music and being a mother and grandmother. Linna retired from Tiffany Glass, where she had worked for 30+ years.
She will be sorely missed but her family takes comfort that she is no longer suffering, and she was able to go home to be with her loved ones in Heaven. Gone, but not forgotten. A wife, a mother, a grandma too, this is the legacy we have from you.
