Following the family’s return to Florida in 1989, Linda worked as an Intensive Care Unit nurse at Florida Hospital DeLand and at Central Florida Regional Hospital in Sanford before becoming ill with Lupus. She was able to continue her chosen career work on a limited basis for a short while in the Home Health field before her illness forced her retirement in 1996.

France and her Husband, James, of DeLand, FL; and by brothers John (Jack) LeFever and Thomas LeFever and sisters Mary Lou Heath and Judy Vail, all of Auburn or Cayuga, NY.; and by the loving nieces and nephews who will be missing their Aunt Linda from near and far.
