I worked with Linda at Black & Veatch. I’ll always remember her smile. I’m sorry sorry to hear of her passing. My deepest sympathy to Jodi and the rest of her family.

I met Linda 58 years ago when I started working at BMA. I remember how sophisticated, professional and attractive she was. We lost touch when I left BMA but several years later, when I was working at Black & Veatch, I saw Linda’s name in the directory. I was hoping she was the same person I knew at BMA...it was and she was still attractive, professional and fun to be around. As we got older, a group of us B&V gals started going to breakfast or lunch to celebrate birthdays. We even took day trips together and planned long weekend trips to Big Cedar (Branson). Linda has been such a blessing to all of us with her positive and cheerful attitude and who modeled humility. I’m counting on seeing her again someday. My deepest sympathy to Jodi, family, and friends. God be with you.

Linda, I will miss you greatly. Your constant cheery outlook on life has been an inspiration to me. Our Tourist Trotter group of retirees won't be the same without you.

Linda was a lady who possessed both inward and outward beauty. It was always one of life's pleasant experiences to be around her. May God be with her family at this time.

So very sorry to learn about losing Linda. My thoughts and prayers are with her family who she loved so very much. She was a great person and friend over many years. We first met at Southeast High School and our paths crossed going through the years. I married J W Jenkins IV (no family relation) 43 years ago and learned he also knew Linda and her extended Jenkins family who he cared, respected and thought very highly of. We had some great times all visiting. She will be missed. Sharon Jenkins
