Linda accomplished many things throughout her life after raising her family, but she was always known for her cooking.

Surviving are three children: Denise Harvey of Charlotte, NC, Michele Bennett of Jamestown, and William Pickard, Jr. (Karen) of Batavia, NY; six grandchildren: Derek Harney (Brooke) of Charlotte, Jamie Bennett of Jamestown, Nicole Deshner (Marcus) of Sumter, SC, and Andrew, Jack and Noah Pickard, all of Batavia; and five great grandchildren: Bradley Bennett of Jamestown, Dakota Adams of Sumter, SC, Savannah Deming of Brocton, NY, and Dominic and Grayson Harvey, both of Charlotte. Along with her parents and her husband, Bill, she was preceded in death by an infant sister, Donna Houck. Friends will be received from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday, March 26th in the Lind Funeral Home. A private family service will be held at a later date. Memorials may be made to Chautauqua County Hospice & Palliative Care, 20 W. Fairmount Ave., Lakewood, NY 14750.
