Linda worked for Cigna Insurance for thirty years. She retired as an Accounting Manager in 1993. Linda enjoyed her career and she excelled during her years at Cigna. Her main priority in life was family. Linda and her husband loved spending time with parents, siblings and their families when her children were young. Weekends and holidays were often spent at campgrounds, Linda’s parent’s farm outside New Paris and later, at her parent’s retirement home in Kentucky with her entire extended family. She also spent time with her in-laws and visited them often. As her children grew up, the bond with her siblings remained strong and the activities changed to trips and concerts. Linda loved going to Las Vegas with her siblings and regular trips to Las Vegas became the norm. She was a master slot machine player, and she enjoyed the bright lights, exciting shows and great food. She and her husband, Marvin, also started taking cruises with big groups of family members. Linda loved the Captain’s dinners on cruises, sightseeing, shopping and drinking in Cozumel. Trips to New Orleans were also added to the list after her in-laws relocated there. Linda was an incredible grandmother and enjoyed special relationships with both of her grandchildren, Saundra Schreifels and Alex Schmitt.
