Linda was born one of seven children to Eural Hughes and Robbie Edmond Hughes on April 11, 1953 in Amarillo, Texas. She received her formal education and graduated from Hobbs High School in Hobbs, New Mexico. Linda was united in holy matrimony to her high school sweetheart, Ronald Eugene Lee, Sr., and to this union was born three children: one son, Ronald Eugene Lee, Jr.; two daughters, Synetta Michelle Lee and Kristal Lane Lee.
She was blessed with an abundance of talents, those being a meticulous homemaker, seamstress, baker, interior decorator (especially decorating with flowers), and arts and crafts. Whatever idea you could come up with and brought to her attention she would give it a try until it was perfected. Linda was a gracious, loving, caring, giving and helpful person to everyone she came in contact with. As she was blessed she "blessed others."
Linda obeyed the gospel in her teens and obeyed her Lord and Savior's call to come and rest after sixty-four years, when her journey and work was completed.
