Linda loved her kids beyond measure and was there for them every step of their lives with encouragement and support. She was a wonderful artist, great cook (not a task she loved but you could tell there was love in every delicious dish) a fastidious businesswoman and gardener. Mrs. Embrey was old school and a real lady who will be missed and never forgotten by those she loved and loved her. She was a member of the Church of Christ.
