Linda was a 1974 graduate of Iberia High School.
On February 14, 1994, she was united in marriage to Douglas Grellner in Hot Springs, AR. He survives of the home.
Linda was employed at Maytag in Jefferson City where she met her husband, Doug. She also cleaned houses and until breast cancer and leukemia kept her from working she was employed at Thriftway in Linn. Linda loved to work. She always had a smile for everyone and enjoyed her co-workers.
Linda loved farm life, gardening, nature and being outside. She enjoyed all her dogs and animals but her dog, Lassie held a special place. Linda’s greatest love was her family and cooking for them. She just loved to make people smile and could never say no to Doug buying another Allis-Chalmers tractor.
