Linda was born in Quanah, Texas on September 15, 1947 to her parents Delvin and Billie Ruth Freeman. She grew up in Eldorado, Oklahoma where she graduated from high school. Linda went on to higher education earning both her bachelor's and master's degrees in education. Linda married the love of her life Edward Olson and they enjoyed over 21 years of marriage together until Edward's death in 1999. Linda was a teacher in Altus at Rivers Elementary School for many years until she retired in 1998. She was a longtime member of the Primitive Baptist Church of Odell, Texas and she also was a proud member of the Jackson County Democratic Women and the Retired Teachers Association. Linda enjoyed arts and crafts, watching her brothers baseball teams and she always enjoyed being involved with and attending the Retired Teachers and Democratic Women's meetings, and Linda always took great care of her cats.
