I met Linda in 1960 when my family moved from Ft. Worth to Haltom City.  I met her at Haltom Jr. High and also at Haltom Road Baptist Church.  Throughout our days in school & church we were close friends.  We both sang at church.  After graduation, we went to different colleges, she to Hardin Simmons and I to East Texas State.  Later, when we were both young marrieds, we re-connected again at church.  At some point, I taught her 2 daughters in G.A.'s at Glenview Baptist.  We both ended up at Glenview again, singing in the choir.  We were roommates for 2 trips (Branson & Washington, D.C.) with the Glenview group. 

Linda was always a person whom I never heard say an unkind word about anyone.  She was a strong Christian, as a teenager & as an adult.  She loved her children & grandchildren and was always smiling.  I still miss her and our long friendship.

Linda and I dated off and on in high school and summers some while we were in college.  She was such a special, beautiful girl.  She married and returned to Birdville schools to teach elementary after graduation from HSU in Abilene.  I can't remember the year, but when Ann, my wife, returned to teaching after having our second son, was assigned to Smithfield Elementary.  It just so happened that Linda Owen Sullivan was also a teacher at the campus, so we got to visit often.  I still see Linda's brother, David, as he is the percussionist for the Texas Girls Choir.

So sorry to hear of Linda's passing,  we were good friends in high school.  Always such a nice person and she had beautiful hair and could do the North Texas push like no other!!  RIP dear friend.

Linda was a dear sweet person who, as I remember her, always had a smile on her face. What a wonderful person to grow up with and to have known. I will always remember her fondly.

I too remember Linda very fondly, from our time in through Jr high and all through high school. But really got to know her as we grew up in Haltom Rd Baptist Church together.  She will be missed. RIP Linda.

One of the nicest persons I've ever known.  Never heard her say a hateful word to, or about, anyone.  Linda lived out her faith in daily life.  She was a friend.  Linda is missed.

What Bill said is very true.  I lived with Linda 2 1/2 years in college.  I never heard her say anything unkind about or to anyone.  She loved the Lord and she always had a positive outlook on life.  And she had been through a lot.  I do miss her.

I miss Linda.  One or two reunions ago, she spoke to everyone, I think with a mic, and I laughed in happiness at the sound of her voice.  Like no other.  Everything sweet--voice, smile, heart.
