From Jeanette Bennett on March 22nd, 2019
Linda and I were best friends! When I was on South Africa on my exchange year (1969) we kept in touch. When I got home we picked up where we left off. During the 1970 year we skipped school a lot. We went to the St. Paul library, and to a murder trial downtown! We went to Moorhead State College in 1070. She was so intelligent and a talented artist. She helped me a lot when we took philosophy together! We shared a dorm room together that year. Then we moved back to the twin cities, and ended up going separate ways. We kept in touch occasionally. I was devastated to hear of her death. It continues to be difficult at times. She was always there when I needed her. She was an amazing friend!!
 
From Stephen Phillips on March 21st, 2019
Linda was a brilliant, beautiful person whom I'd known since we progressed through our grade school years, together.

Along with Lucia Fellows and Jim Landkamer, we were "drafted" together in our sixth grade class as a four-some, to participate in Hamlin Hagander's masters thesis  - a program that was utterly invalidated and futile, as he merely handed out the extensive materials and never followed through with the group meetings and discussions that were mandated). 

Quiet, reserved, she was nonetheless brilliant, with a wry sense of humor.

Several years after graduation, I tried to look her up - only to discover to my abject horror and devastation, that (at the age of 23) she had passed on January 22, 1975 - the victim of her "husband", who took her life before ending his own.

I often reflect on that tragedy, and will always wonder if things might have been different, had I kept in touch...

Linda, you are sorely missed and much loved by many.

John was my best friend growing up just a couple of doors down from our house.  They moved in around 4th grade and we spent many hours and days playing football, baseball, golfing and swimming at the beach.  One of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet, he always had your back.  I still miss him to this day.  RIP old friend....
