She attended Pan American University in Edinburg, Texas, and received her Bachelor of Science in Education. She was an educator for all of her life. She taught at Rio Grande City ISD, Sharyland ISD, and McAllen ISD, where she continued substituting after her retirement. She was a dedicated teacher first and foremost. She treasured her students and dedicated herself to their learning. She was blessed to have many friends and co-workers whose friendship she cherished.
Linda Lee was also a loving sister who cared dearly for her brothers, but most importantly, she was Auntie Linda to all her nephews and nieces. Her nephews and nieces were her pride and joy. Though she never had children of her own, she shared all the fun and laughter with them as they were growing up and she treated each one of them special and she was loved dearly by them all. She never forgot their birthdays or anniversary’s and always sent holiday cards and greetings to all. Linda Lee was the aunt with the camera that always captured all of our family’s cherished moments. Her death comes suddenly, but all the memories she created will last a lifetime.
