Linda and I met in a class sophmore year.  I can't remember what the class was, but I remember is was on the first floor over in West Hall.  She and I hit it off.  Linda and her boyfriend Don (class of ’63, whom it appears she later married, or maybe there is more than one Don Sikorski out there!) and my boyfriend Bud double dated a few times.  The four of us always had such a great time.  Unfortunately, Linda and I lost touch at some point, and when I saw her name on the In Memory list, my heart ached.

What a sweet, lovely person she was. Always a smile and a kind word. Gerald and I saw Don at the '63 reunion this October. They were married 44 years! It was very sad to see him without Linda at his side.

This is killing me.  Linda and I met at Nichols and had several classes together in highschool.  We shared family tales of woe.  She had a wonderful, gentle way about her but you didn't want to mess with her!  I am so glad she found the love of her life - she deserved the very best of everything.

Linda and I were good friends in high school.  We worked together (part time) for JM Mock & Associates, a family-owned company who did medical billing for anesthesiologists, for two years (Jr & Sr year in high school).  Linda actually got me the job.  Our boyfriends those two years, Don & Ray, were also good friends so we often double-dated.  I remember once, when Don had just bought a motorcycle, that Linda was afraid to ride on it at first so, she rode in the car with Ray and I rode on the back of Don's bike.  She was a gentle, kind soul.  I am sure that her family misses her greatly.

Linda and I were good friends starting in 5th grade when I moved from Oakton to Dewey School.  In 7th and 8th grades we walked back and forth to Nichols School, hung out together, and spent time at each other's houses.  I remember camping with her family and spending long summer days playing tennis in the morning at ETHS, riding our bikes, and then sitting on her porch in the hot afternoons drinking lemonade and playing Canasta.  Other memorable times include playing on a soft-ball team I think was called the Alley-Oops, and lying on towels at the Evanston beach, listening to the latest songs on a transistor radio.  The last time I saw Linda was when I visited her and Don at their place in Sarasota where they lived next to a golf course. 

Linda was a great friend--beautiful, kind hearted, athletic, and a lot of fun.
