Linda always had a smile on her face, loved to laugh, and spread joy wherever she went. She worked as a Respiratory Therapist at St. Luke’s and Texas Children’s in the Houston Medical Center, followed by Home Health, where she loved visiting her elderly patients. Linda had a lifelong love of animals, and volunteered many hours at animal shelters, most recently at the St. Francis Wolf Sanctuary in Montgomery. She enjoyed her time on the lake, loved her Houston Rockets, but most especially loved watching her grandsons in all their activities.

Survivors include her son, Jeffrey Ross and wife, Kimberly, of Port Arthur; grandchildren, Noah and Ryan Ross; life-partner, Patricia Walker, of Groves; brothers, Dwight Hansen and wife, Kelly, of California and Ken Hansen and wife, Marsha, all of Iowa; sister, Connie Racs and husband, John, of California; and numerous nieces and nephews.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Virginia and Dwight Hansen.

A family committal for Ms. Ross will be held at a later date, under the direction of Broussard’s, 505 North 12th Street, Nederland.

Linda was the best of high school friends: always kind, full of life and laughter and lover of animals, especially dogs. Her smile lit up many a person's lives. She was always willing to help out a friend--for me that was helping me learn the theorems in geometry in high school.. I would have never made it through without her.. My deepest condolences to all who loved her. She touched so many lives in a positive, uplifting way.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Linda was a good high school friend of my sister, Georgia Thormann Schneekloth. I was younger, but Linda always included me. Georgia passed away five days before Linda. I'm sure they are having fun reminiscing about the good old days!
