She married the love of her life, Ron Samples, on March 12, 1983 at Dobra House of Prayer in Sharpless, West Virginia. Linda was a kind and compassionate woman with a heart of gold. She never met a stranger or passed an opportunity to help others in need. Her smile was contagious and could light up any room. She was an athlete, a musician, and a mother to many over the years on the ballfield. She was a jack of all trades and there wasn’t anything she couldn’t fix. Most of all she was a selfless wife and mother and the pillar of their strength.

Her mother, Patricia Belcher, her stepfather Billy Belcher, her brother Jeff Carol (Lisa), and her sister Donna Dials.
