She graduated from Iowa State University in 1976 earning a degree in education.  She played in the band at both WHS and ISU, playing clarinet. Her love of music continued her whole life.

Linda was united in marriage to John P. Norris on August 20, 1977 in Davenport.  They have shared over 44 years of marriage together.

Linda retired in 2009 from the Field Support Command Office at the Rock Island Arsenal following 32 years of dedicated service.  Her job took her all over the world, including Korea, Japan, and the Netherlands.  She was also a co-founder of Uncle Norm’s Fireworks, sharing the excitement of fireworks since 2003.

Linda was extremely caring and easy going, but also made sure you knew she was the boss!  She cherished her family, especially her grandchildren.  Linda also enjoyed antiquing and traveling, especially to their home in Ft. Myers, Florida.

Survivors include her husband, John, Davenport; children: Kyle (Amanda) Norris, Eldridge, Lindsey (Kyle) Jubell, Davenport; grandchildren: Emmett, Max, and Claire; step-grandchildren: Kolton, Makayla, and Libby; a sister, Sandy (Bob) Froehlich, Savanna, Illinois.
