So sad to hear of Linda's passing. I worked with her in Trenton, NJ for quite a while and she was an exceptional agent who worked hard every day and was always reliable. She enjoyed her chosen profession and am sure she was ecstatic to be transferred back to SC. Condolences to her family and I will remember her fondly.

It seems like only yesterday that Linda and I were chasing down the bad guys, “fugitives and bank robbers.” As a first office agent, assigned to the Jackson, Mississippi field office, in the early 80’s, she unfortunately drew the short straw and got me as her senior training agent. It did not take me long to realize I didn’t know who would be training who. She was one of a handful of female agents, over my 32 year career with the FBI, I felt comfortable and confident in working cases with, regardless of the criminal violation. She probably is the only first office agent to received a letter of censure, followed by a letter of accommodation in the shooting arrest of a serial bank robber. The letter of accommodation was Deserved, however the censure was on me; but since we were together, the Bureau wanted us to share. Hopefully, the picture, if attached correctly, was taken during the investigation of a major bank robbery, kidnapping and killing of a bank teller, believe it was in 1981. The entire office, especially Linda, worked tiredless 24/7 for 30 dates before subject was apprehended. I was saddened to hear of her passing. She was a wonderful person, who will be missed. My Prayers to her family.

I have such fond memories about Linda when she was assigned to the FBI Jackson, MS field office. She was diligent in her work and treated everyone as a good friend. I will be praying for all her family during this difficult time.

To Linda's Family, My sincerest condolences on the passing of this wonderful person and former servant of the FBI. Linda was my training Agent in Jackson, Ms and co-owner of a townhouse together, when we both worked in the NYO. She taught me so much in BU Life; while I hopefully taught her a little about loving animals and things outside of the FBI 24/7 other than her love of golf. Oh, the stories we could share! As was typical of Linda, she was very close knit about family and friends. Since we both retired, we would stay in touch at Christmas and other events taking place usually involving the BU, but she never once mentioned her illness. Bless you all in this time of grieving, but know that she was loved, respected by not only myself, but many many others! Sincerely, Shelly C. Stuart, Class of 80-17, End of Duty 2005-12 Columbia, TN
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

I am Mak Kelliher, Chairman, Grand Strand Chapter (Myrtle Beach), Society of Former Special Agents of the FBI. On behalf of my wife Barbara and I, as well as the members of our above Chapter, I extend our deepest sympathies to Linda's family regarding her passing. Personally I was fortunate to have worked with Linda for many years after she transferred to the FBI Myrtle Beach office. She was the consummate professional and also a good friend. I had also known Linda when we both worked for the FBI in New Jersey, Linda in Trenton and I in Cherry Hill. We were not aware that Linda was sick (although she attended our chapter meetings) and we were very saddened to hear of her passing. We will miss her.

Debbie, Bruce, and Stuart, your sister was one wonderful person! She made our high school years fun. I happened to see her one night on a PBS program, talking about the art theft at DeBordieu some years ago. It was great to see her again at our last pre-covid reunion. My deepest sympathy to you now.

My thoughts and prayers are with Linda’s family. I met her in 1968 at Winthrop and enjoyed her wit, wisdom and love for life. She truly was everyone’s friend and was a born leader who others migrated toward. I along with so many will miss her at every Winthrop event and annual beach trip. Rest In Peace, cherished friend.
