Linda was born on December 10th, 1960 to Julius Stewart and Elsie Augustine (Trent) Stewart in Stilwell, OK. After Linda graduated from Stilwell High School, she went on to study nursing and obtained her LPN license among several other certifications.

In 1977, Linda met Jim and was married on November 22nd at Freewater Baptist Church. Linda and Jim spent 45 years of wedded bliss together. Their love and friendship was rich in affection and commitment. Linda and Jim went on to have three children, Victoria, Walter, and Dana.

Linda spent her time quilting and tending to her flowers. She was a beautiful soul who loved people immensely. Being able to help others was Linda’s love language. She enjoyed being surrounded by her family and by no surprise, sharing her time with her grandbabies whom she loved fiercely.
