Linda was born in Baton Rouge on February 7, 1948 to parents, James Carlos Cobb and Nellie Wilson Cobb Lemoine. Linda was a 1966 graduate of Istrouma High School where she was a member of the National Honor Society. Linda remained close to her Istrouma High classmates over the years, often going to lunch and traveling with the "Indian Princesses." In her younger years, Linda participated in gymnastics and loved to ride horses. An avid sports fan, Linda and her husband, Tim, held season tickets to LSU football, baseball, softball, men's and women's basketball, and gymnastics. Linda and Tim traveled extensively and took many cruises. She truly loved life and was an exuberant, kind, and caring soul. Linda and her husband co-owned Music Time and have provided instruments for bands for over 20 years. Linda also owned and operated Jack of All Trades clock repair service.

She is also survived by her siblings: Clint C. Cobb of Central, LA; Stacy Shirey of Watson, LA; and Lisa Cobb Mullis of Corpus Christi, TX. Linda's niece, Sydnie Shirey, rarely left Linda's side in her final days and was holding her hand when she took her final breath. Linda is preceded in death by her parents and first husband, Carl L. Shaw, whom she loved dearly.
