In 1960 she married James Caldwell of Elwood, Indiana. Her work took them to Louisville, Kentucky in the early 90's. When her husband became ill they moved to the Nashville, Tennessee area to be with their daughter, Mendy Caldwell and then he passed away in 2009.

In 2014 she married her high school sweetheart Danny Welborn.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents; and brothers, Donald McBride of Alexandria, Indiana and Timothy McBride of Anderson, Indiana.

Go rest high on that Mountain, Linda.
