She graduated from Fremont High School in 1961. Following high school she went to Bahner Cosmetology School (now Bahner College of Hairstyling) where she also taught part time. After graduating from Bahner Cosmetology School she taught full time until her future husband was discharged from the Navy. They were married in October of 1964 and lived in Fremont where they raised three children. While raising a family Linda operated a beauty shop out of her home. In 1976 the family moved to Arlington where she opened ‘Hilltop Beauty Salon’. In 1994 she retired, and she and Richard moved to Omaha.
