Linda had a twin named Louise, who she was very close to. Louise passed away about three years ago. Lynda still misses her and says they were very close. The loss, she said "was the hardest part of my whole,whole life." Lynda fondly recalls during childhood when people didn't believe she and Louise were twins because they didn't look alike at all. Linda was blonde while her sister had kinky, curly red hair. 

Lynda donated a kidney to her brother-in-law, Jeffrey Gotts. He has since passed away but lived another ten years after the transplant. Linda was happy to be able to do that and give her brother-in-law's children ten more years to get to know their father.
