When she and Doug were first married, she owned a Palomino horse and later she enjoyed a brief stint as a dog groomer. She also loved to bake and was famous among those who knew her for her banket and fudge. Linda also had quite a green thumb and enjoyed gardening around the house, she especially loved pink carnations. Linda also took pride in her car, an 85 Cutlass Supreme, which she took to many car shows and won several awards for. Above all else though, Linda loved and took pride in her family.
