Linda was a dedicated professional with a love of food and antiques.  When diagnosed with cancer in late July 2018, she remained dedicated to our Lord and in her will to fight her illness.  She remained a brave, loving, head-strong woman, even throughout her final months.  She was loved by many.


Linda is survived by her son, Rodney Pennock and daughter-in-law, Shea, two grandsons, Connor and Cole Pennock; her daughter, Angela Fefel (Waites) and son-in-law, Joey, one granddaughter, Lexi; and her brother, John C.
