    Dear family of Linda,
    Frank and I had the privilege of working with Linda for many years at Waverly Community Schools. She was always smiling and helpful when we called or went to visit the administration building. She had a great sense of humor. We were saddened to hear of her untimely death. She will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family during this difficult time. Sincerely, Pat and Frank Klein.
