Linda was raised in Kalamazoo and graduated from Loy Norrix High School in 1973. She continued her studies at Michigan State University where she earned her bachelor of arts in office administration in 1977. Linda worked with the State of Michigan for over thirty years as an accountant where she also met the love of her life, Bryan Lynn Stewart. They were married in the Bahamas on March 10th, 2000. As an avid golfer, Linda enjoyed spending time with Bryan at a variety of courses around the Lansing area and especially at Highland Woods Golf and Country Club near their vacation home in Bonita Springs, FL.
