   Linda was a lifetime resident of Ripon, working for Ripon Unified School District for the past 20 years in the food service department. She was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church and taught Catechism for many years at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Ripon. Linda was proud of her Portuguese heritage and was a member of the FESM and the MRPS where she was crowned little queen at the age of 6 years old and crown queen for a second time in 1987 where her sisters where her side maids. Linda enjoyed crocheting, trips to the coast, visiting her little friend next door Harper and watching movies, especially watching her favorite hallmark movies. Linda had a heart of gold, she loved children and held each of her nieces and nephews near and dear to her heart. Her devotion to family was like no other as everyone felt equally loved and cared for.  Linda will be remembered for her helpful selfless spirit, her playful character and her unconditional love to her husband, son, mother and extended family. She will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her.
