Linda worked for several ad agencies, prior to fulfilling her dream of starting and running Priority Printing & Marketing in Kansas City, since 1994. Linda was a talented entrepreneur, developing her printing business and investing in several real estate properties. She was also a very creative person. She could paint, draw or sew about anything.
