Linda was happiest when she was with children and family, especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She enjoyed walking, gardening, cooking and baking for others, friends, movies, beach, golf, music, and laughing. She was best known for her many desserts and her famous nuts and bolts. Linda was a selfless, giving, loving Mom to many. She is survived by her children, Matt (Becky) Lykins, and Michelle Lykins; her grandchildren, Cory (Molly) Lykins, and Lindsey (Brenden) Robinson; her great grandchildren, Lainey Robinson and Emerson Lykins. She was preceded in death by her husband, C. Dewey Lykins (2007), her parents, and her siblings, Audrey (Beesler) Richter and Chris Beesler.
