Linda was born in Des Moines on November 13, 1946 to the late Dale and Edith (Carlson) Graham and graduated from Tech High School. She worked at Iowa Credit Union League, Dilley Manufacturing, Mercy Hospital Printing Department and Mercy Neurological Center. She attended the Ankeny Seventh Day Adventist Church and Iowa Credit Union Women’s Supper Club.

She worked in the printing and typesetting businesses for most of her career up until her last job which was working for Neurology in the billing department at Mercy Hospital. She met many great friends along the way and stayed in contact with them through the years. Once a month she met with her friends from the Iowa Credit Union League to have supper and catch up with the latest news they had and just enjoyed talking with each other - which is how it became The Supper Club. She was also devoted to her husband, Terry - her soul mate. They loved just being at home, whether it was watching a movie, working in the yard or doing their own thing, they were there together. When he passed away in 2007, she was devastated and never quite recovered from the loss. She is now with him again - the love of her life. She was an avid supporter of multiple Animal Humane Societies and Organizations and to stopping the cruelty and abuse to animals. She enjoyed crocheting, sewing, doing many assorted crafts and spending time with family and all of her friends. She also loved spending time with her puppy dog, Sage. They were true companions.

She is survived by her daughter, Lori Lockard (Dave); sons by marriage, TG Wade (Annie), Troy Wade and Tim Wade (Rachel); puppy dog, Sage; eight grandchildren, Brooke Northway (David), Makenna Wade, Cody Wade (Paige), Haley Wade (Ky), Ali Justesen, Maggie Justesen, Becky Longcor and Erin Longcor; six great grandchildren; two sisters, Loretta Tilton and Gayla Low; three nieces, and one nephew. She was preceded in death by her husband, Terrell G Wade Jr; and brother-in-law, Don Tilton.
