Twenty+ years of that time was spent with Burford Manor Nursing Home in Davis. Linda was an avid collector of antiques, or anything she thought might be an antique. Her collecting led her to spend countless hours shopping thrift stores, gift shops, flea markets and garage sales. She loved sharing her collectibles with her beloved family, whether they really wanted them or not.

Linda loved her family and cherished spending time with them, especially her grandchildren. She was an excellent cook and enjoyed cooking for her family and friends.

In addition to her parents, Linda was preceded in death by her husband, Alfred Allen Goforth in 1999; one daughter, Angela Lynn Thomas; one granddaughter, Alesia Fawn Mefford; and three siblings, George Gosvener, Jessie Gosvener, and Delores Smith.
