Linda’s family relocated to New Castle where she met the love of her life, Maurice True. They shared a wonderful 54 years of marriage together, loving every minute of each other and building their family. Family was the most important thing to Linda.

Linda graduated from Walter P. Chrysler High School in 1969. Shortly after, she married Maurice and moved to El Paso, Texas where he was stationed in the U.S. Army. After Maurice completed his service, they resided in rural New Castle.

Linda managed the JoAnn Fabrics store for many years until its closure and then decided to further her education by receiving her CNA and QMA. She retired from The Waters of New Castle. Linda enjoyed sewing, cooking, camping with family and friends, attending car shows, supporting Maurice in his tractor pulls and being with her kids and grandkids.
