She and her husband, Allan, have two adult daughters, Meredith and Jocelyn. The photo is from Jocelyn's (second from left) voice recital in the spring of 2006. Linda is a graduate of Susquehanna University (an ELCA school in Selinsgrove, Pa.) and The Johns Hopkins University (Baltimore).
She began her career teaching high school English, composition and journalism. She hung up the chalk when her daughters arrived.
