Linda was an outgoing person always laughing and cracking jokes with everyone.  She was a very sociable person.  Linda loved spending time with her family and she especially adored her grandkids.  She was very thoughtful and was always looking out for her family while out thrift shopping and garage sailing, which was her favorite past time other than keno and slots.  Her favorite person to go to the casino with was Patsy.  Linda also enjoyed making dream catchers which she was great at and was always trying to cut up someone’s leather jacket, lol.  She loved making Fry beard for the whole family, and we will be missed dearly.

Linda is survived by her son, Adrian Staples and daughter, Ashley (Jim) Brown, her grandchildren and great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her mother, Cecelia “Bone” Drouillard, daughter, Jessica “Jess” Staples, sisters, Louella “Anna” Drouillard and Barbara “Punkin” Drouillard.
