On December 13, 1975 she married James Armstrong at the United Methodist Church in Frankfort. They were blessed with three children, Aletha Marie, Kelly James, and Amy Lee. Linda enjoyed spending time with her kids and grandkids, baking, crocheting, watching her favorite TV shows, playing fetch with her dog coco. Linda found great joy in making things for others. She also enjoyed baking pumpkin bread and sharing it with everyone. For several years she would bake pumpkin bread and deliver it to the Marshall County sheriff’s office. Linda worked in the health care system for many years, she even started up her own medical transportation business, she named it Rainbows and Bear Hugs. She always wanted to do whatever she could to help others and for many years she donated several gallons of blood to the American Red Cross. She even received a letter stating that her blood was used to save someone’s life. One of the most rewarding jobs of all is when she started working for USD 380, transporting kids to Head Start in Marysville, and even getting her own bus route three times a day. In November 2001, they moved to town to take care of her dad, until he moved to the Frankfort Care Home.
