Linda also worked for and retired from the Louisiana Lottery. Linda was a talented woman with many skills. She had a warrior spirit. A beautiful and petite woman, she was scared of nothing and no one. Her most recent years may have been her happiest. She was a homemaker and loved raising her Grandson Ty Swinney. She loved being at her home with the people she loved. She loved just sitting on her porch with her many flowers and plants that she was always so good at taking care of. Her bird and squirrel watching could fill entire days. She loved her children and grandchildren with great passion.
