      She was preceded in passing by her parents and her son, Jerry Lee Hurd.

      A visitation will begin at 10 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, 2024, at Frank & Bright Funeral Home in Flora, Illinois. Following this, a procession to Elmwood Cemetery in Flora will take place for a graveside ceremony celebrating Linda’s life at 11 a.m., with interment to follow.

      Memorial donations in Linda's memory are suggested to the Rotary Club of Flora, Illinois, in the spirit of community improvement, and will be accepted through the funeral home.  To share a condolence or memory with her family, please visit

Dear Krystal, Very sorry for the loss of your beloved matriarch. We know that you will miss her. Thinking of you and all of her loved ones.

Dear Krystal, Cyndi, Leroy and others: My sister Ramona sent us a text message on Sunday that Linda was not doing well, and were so surprised that the Lord took her home so soon. Although I was not in regular contact with Linda like Ramona was, I remember she was a painter and found it so interesting that she was a writer as well! I'm sure she looked forward to being reunited with her parents and her son Jerry Lee, but will also miss her extended family and all the grandchildren and so many younger ones, as they all will miss her. Our sincere thoughts and prayers to you all, and may God bless and comfort each of you.
