My dear friend, Linda Campbell Collins passed away yesterday (7/31/18). Linda was such a good friend to so many--always fun, always available, always beautiful.  She had a zest for life like no other! She was brilliant--a master of Jeopardy and Trivial Pursuit.  I don't know where she kept all that information, but am told that she was asked to leave the Trivial Pursuit games at her care center in Steamboat Springs because none of the other residents could compete.

I have so many fond memories of Linda.  I first met her in 8th grade cooking class where she tossed pancakes out the window.  Unfortunately, Principal Quincy Tarter just happened to be below.  And so it went...  Our families spent many Thanksgivings together.  The games, especially Charades were always a hit.  Linda was quite an actress, too.

Linda was so proud of her son Michael, her daughter Carole and their families.  My heart weeps for them at this time.  I shall miss you my friend.  Until we meet again...BFF

I remember seeing Linda in the hallways at NCHS. She always had time to chat and had such a kind smile. I could tell she was extremely intelligent but also very humble. I’ll always remember those hallway meetings. She will be missed. My prayers go out to her and family.

I am so sorry to hear this.  Linda was always a fun person to be around.  She could think up more trouble to get all is in.  She will be missed.

Linda was definately a "best friend." I especially remember grade school at St. Anthony's. We always wore our hair alike, and spent so much time together. Her parent's restaurant downtown was often our destination. She and Jeanette came to visit me in the 1990s. Recently, when I heard she was very sick, I sent her copies of a lot of photos of us together, and that brought back so many memories.

I too remember Linda from grade school. She  had a couple of fun slumber parties. She was always fun to be around.

     I too loved Linda.  I am her childhood friend who lived up the street.

Linda was a faithful friend to whom all could turn and receive understanding

and love.  She chose to use her Masters Degree to help people:  families

in crisis and even prisoners.   She was involved with a restorative justice

program and attended a number of conferences.  We went on a couple of

trips together and had so much fun - that's 'cause Linda had a great sense

of humor.  She was extremely intelligent and a champ at crossword puzzles.

I will miss her A LOT!
