Linda was born April 28, 1941, in Pawnee, Oklahoma. She was the daughter of James “Plummer” and Veronia Mae (Turner) Younger.

The couple established their first home at Oceanside, California at Camp Pendleton. In 1962, Linda and Jim returned to Oilton where they have continued to reside.

Linda enjoyed listening to country music. She especially loved growing flowers working in the garden and sharing her vegetables with all of her family and friends. Linda also enjoyed going camping as well as going places with her sister Wanda. The two also enjoyed every year making a spook house which was enjoyed by many of those in the community. Trips usually consisted going to see relatives which would sometimes involve a float trip down the Buffalo River. Linda attended for many years the Free Will Baptist Church in Oilton.
