    She was a wonderful person and amazing painter. She made many painted shirts for me and my family. Some of my favorite were decorated with the names of my children for me and of my mom’s grandchildren for my mom. Great present for the family. No task was too difficult for her. Praying for her family.

    Linda was married to my cousin, Johnnie Uhiren. She contacted me many times for information about my family when she prepared the history of the Slovak people and I enjoyed all those special moments. She was so talented, so kind and so special. My sympathy, love and prayers to her brother and sister-in-laws, and her family. May she rest in peace. Evelyn Pushkarsky Elgin
