Linda was a strong confident woman who could do anything she put her mind to. She began her career in aviation in 1965 as secretary in the Engineering Department for TWA. In early 1980s she went to school at Bakers Aero Mechanics School where she graduated with her Airframe and Powerplant License. She then took a job at Global International Airlines as a maintenance mechanic/inspector. In 1985, she moved to Atlanta Ga where she worked for Flight International.

She retired from FAA in 2008 as a principle maintenance inspector assigned to American Airlines.
Along with her mechanical abilities, working on airplanes or performing maintenance on her car, she also had a variety of other interests. Her love of animals began at an early age when, according to her, a dog followed her home. It was always questioned whether Penny actually followed her home. Whether she had cows, horses, dogs, chickens, rabbits, goats or birds she was never without a pet. She raised Tennessee Walking horses. Her favorite horse, Corey, was shown in Walking Horse Shows across Florida. She took lessons and soloed for her private pilot’s license at the age of 65. She was a talented painter and loved all kinds of needlework. She could knit, crochet, needlepoint, quilt, sew, cross stitch and embroidery. When she got to the point, she couldn’t see to do fine handwork, she bought an embroidery machine to continue her craft. Many friends and family members have been recipients of her embroidery items.
