On Feb. 18, 1943, Willie Frank and Laura Bell (Brackeen) Smith of Harlingen, Texas, were blessed with a baby girl, Linda Kamiel. Linda was educated in the Harlingen school system. After graduation, Linda went to work in her aunt and uncle’s drug store. It was there that Linda met the love of her life, John A. Littleton. John and Linda married Sept. 4, 1965. To this union were two sons, Douglas “Doug” Sean and Steven “Steve” Frank.
Linda had a love for quilting and showed her love through the many meals she cooked for her family. Linda’s greatest love, however, was her family. She was affectionately called “Gee” by her grandchildren who loved her very much.
