She was the beloved mother of five children, Alwyn (P-Wee) Linder (deceased), Angela (Angie) Kirby, Ronald (Jody) Linder (deceased) Kevin (Boo) Linder and Ramona (Mona) Linder.
Salome worked at the VA Hospital for 30 years where she retired. She enjoyed cooking, ironing, sewing, dancing, imitating people, and music, especially Al Green. She was the life of the party and always the center of attention. She was a jokester and was known for her wicked tongue and sarcasm what usually comes up came out. To know her is/was to love her, and she will truly be missed.
