She loved gardening and was known to enjoy a good book with her beloved cat keeping her company nearby.

Linda leaves behind to cherish her memories her husband of 18 years, David Bernard; daughters, Jessica Thompson and husband, Paul of Vidrine and Tonya Miksza and husband, Michael of Bunkie; and son Robert Guillory and companion, Susan Briscoe, of Watson. Linda also leaves behind her stepchildren, Taylor Thompson of Deville, Tara Mathews and husband, Orey of Marksville, and Nick Bernard and wife, Kennie of Marksville; her sister, Dorothy Guillory and husband, Michael of Ville Platte; grandchildren, Brice Guillory, Daylon Thompson, Jordan Thompson, Steven Miksza, Kaden Miksza, Zane Miksza, Daniel Miksza, Josie Miksza, Camden Thompson, Brinley Thompson, Ashlyn Mathews, Tayton Bernard, and Kooper Bernard; and great grandson, Walker Guillory.
