Linda was employed at Radiology Fond du Lac in the business office. Linda enjoyed traveling, trap shooting, and especially time spent with her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her many friends. Following the death of her first husband, Linda eventually re-married to Lawrence H. Poppe, a mutual friend of both Mike and Linda.
