While working at Westing House in Union City she met the love of her life and her and James Brandt got married on December 17, 1966 in Winchester, Indiana. The couple just recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. Linda was great at everything she did. She enjoyed her family and the grandkids she adored. Everyone wanted to be around her as much as possible cause she made you laugh and offered the best advice. Linda has been failing in health the past couple years but this time the Lord wanted her and it was not in our control anymore. She had fought through what most people would have never survived. She is a true champion and will continue to be our champion forever. Linda enjoyed working outside as much as she could but since health declined she loved to watch Judge Judy and daytime soap operas. She also loved gambling and was loved by all.

There will be a service held on Tuesday, February 14, 2017 at 10:30 AM at Bailey Zechar Funeral Home, Versailles, Ohio, with Pastor Nick Dimmick officiating. Burial will follow in Brock Cemetery, Brock, Ohio. Family will receive friends on Monday, February 13, 2017 from 6-8 PM at the funeral home.
