A Paraeducator at Southern Elementary, she was passionate about working and helping “her kids” with their reading assignments. She loved going to the beach, reading a good book and being “Lala” to her grandchildren. Linda would travel any distance to watch her grandkids play their favorite sport, musical instrument, or dance. She was their number one cheerleader. Linda was everyone’s friend and would light up the room with her laughter and smile.
In addition to her mother and her husband of 44 years, she is survived by her daughters, Sara Beth (Josh) Romans-Alexander, Georgetown, Erin Lynn (Danny) Romans, Lexington and Kari Michelle (Matthew) Virse, Stamping Ground; siblings, Susan Beth (Willie) Breen, Georgetown and Barry Lynn (Diannah) Hammons, Stamping Ground; grandchildren, Devin Scott Romans-Alexander, Kylie Nicole Romans-Alexander, Caroline Gail Romans, Daniel Reilly Romans, Mercy Zane Romans, Ryann Elizabeth Virse and Larkyn Nicole Virse; as well as numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her brother, Jimmy Hammons.
