Linda was born on March 6, 1957, in Muscatine, the daughter of Robert and Florence Schaffer Metcalf. She married Michael Johnson on November 15, 1980, at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church.
Linda was a graduate of Marycrest College in Davenport, earning her paralegal degree. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, and played the bells there. She was active volunteering in the community as well, giving her time to Window Box, Impact Life Blood Center, and the Salvation Army as a bell ringer. In her free time, she enjoyed square dancing, yard sales, camping, showing quarter horses when she was younger, and has had lunch dates with her old high school friends since 1975. She enjoyed traveling, including Yellowstone National Park, and going on enough cruises to be an Emerald Level traveler.
Those left to honor her memory include her husband, Michael; her cats, Tanner and Sylvia; siblings, Pam Lane, Mike Young, and Barb young; cousins, Bob Viner and his wife, Judy, Jude Mungor, Jeannine Sarmiento, June Hurdle, and Jim Viner; and her best friend, Jan Phillips.
