Linda was born to Mary and Robert Ford of Zion, Iowa. She attended Orient Macksburg High School and was an Iowa State University graduate. Linda's career in graphic design spanned the next forty years. She designed newspaper ads, magazine layouts, books and advertising for the Omaha World-Herald, Meredith Publishing, August Home Publishing and DCC Marketing. Linda also spent several years as a freelance graphic designer while she raised her family.

She is remembered by her husband, Kirk; sons, Andrew (Lauren) and William; daughter, Allison (Eric) Lambert and their children, Charlotte and Race; brothers, Jim and Chuck (Angie) Ford; and sister, Rhonda (Scott) Thompson.

Linda's family requests that in lieu of flowers you support, in some way, the battle against this ugly disease. Condolences may be expressed at www.HamiltonsFuneralHome.com.
