Linda worked as a custodian for the Lemoore Union High School District for 21 years before retiring in 2012. She was proud of her career and made many friends during her time with the District.
Linda was a member of Saint Peter's Catholic Church. Her faith was a strong influence in her life and helped make her the compassionate and loving person that she was.
What Linda was most proud of was her family that she built with her one true love, Thomas Martinez, who is welcoming her into his arms for the rest of eternity. Linda loved to watch her children play softball and baseball and spent so many summers traveling to tournaments, cheering and watching with pride. This pride even grew stronger as she got the chance to share many years with her nine grandchildren and blessed to see two great grandchildren. Linda was the Matriarch of the family.
