Linda was born on March 26, 1947, in Clinton, the daughter of Myron L. and Lucille (McCubbin) Storey. They both preceded her in death. Linda married Scott C. Harrold on January 12, 1969, in Wapella. He survives.

Scott and Linda have three children, Brian (Monica) of Whiting, Ind.; Greg (Julie) of Clinton; and Brad of Sturgeon Bay, Wis. All survive as well as one grandson, Dylan, three step-granddaughters, and four step-great-grandchildren. She is also survived by two sisters, Pat (Bob) Carter, of Tolono, Ill., and Deanna (Tom) Langley, of Mt. Vernon, Wash., and one brother, David (Susie) Storey, of Lincoln, Ill.

Linda graduated from Wapella High School in 1965 and Burnham School of Nursing, Champaign, Ill., in 1968. She began her nursing career in Brokaw Hospital, now Carle BroMenn, in Normal.  During her career she also worked as office nurse for Dr. Herman Meltzer, the doctor who delivered her as a baby. She finished her career at the Dr. John Warner Hospital, now Warner Hospital and Health Services, in their Family Medicine Clinic, which she helped to establish as the Rural Health Center. She retired in 2012.

Linda’s greatest joy, besides her faith, her family, and her work taking care of others, was the opportunity and privilege to sing with the gospel music group “The Joynotes.”
