Family and friends gathered Thursday afternoon to reminisce with
Blue and wish her well in this next phase of her life. Looking back
at her career with the school district she said, “Every day walking
in the halls and seeing children and wishing them a good day or
saying 'Good morning' was a good day.”
She smiled and seemed quite content when asked about her future
plans, "For a while, probably just relaxing and trying to decide
what the next chapter of my life is. I’m looking forward to it.”
Blue mentioned that she began her working career at the age of 20 at
the State Bank of Lincoln. She said she worked at the downtown
Broadway location for 16-17 years. “That was my first set of family
members to work with. I was the youngest at the bank and I met some
wonderful friends that I am still friends with today. I left there
to be with my family in Mount Pulaski.”

Her family in Mount Pulaski currently would be husband, George,
daughter Casie, and grandson Caden. Her son, Terry, lives in Memphis
with his wife, Raquel, and two daughters, Sabrina and Brook.
No doubt as Blue has already adopted the “no hurry, no worry”
attitude, she will enjoy the extra time with family and those trips
to Memphis can be taken anytime now.
Congratulations, Linda, you’ve earned it!
