Linda has fond memories of being Queen and enjoys showing her grandchildren her scrapbooks from her year as Miss German-America. Being German is a large part of Linda’s identity. She takes great pride in the fact that all her grandchildren call her Oma.Twill Current 2


One of Linda’s fondest memories of Queen was while traveling to Germany as a Goodwill Ambassador. Linda was able to sit in First Class, here she met a gentleman who paid for her parents to join her in first class for their return trip!


Twill-CurrentLinda’s advice for future courts is “It’s a wonderful experience that will have a lifetime effect and expose you to things many have not experienced. Enjoy the journey!”
