Linda was born February 10, 1946 in Decatur, Illinois, daughter of Carter E. and Betty Jane Taylor. She married William T. Paine, who preceded her in death. After getting her childcare degree at Richland Community College, Linda worked for a short time at the daycare at Maranatha Church. She then went on to work at the ABC Preschool for over 30 years where she was loved by kids, coworkers, and the parents. Everyone called her grandma. She would tell anyone who listened, “I love my babies I take care of daily”. Linda had a kind and generous heart and will be missed by so many. Her favorite quote was “do unto others as you want to be done by” and she lived her life that way. She was a member of The Summit Avenue Church.
Surviving are her children, daughter Mindi Cooper and son Andrew Paine; grandson Jeffery Cooper; brothers Lynn Taylor and Racie Taylor of Las Vegas and brother Carter Taylor of Decatur.
She was preceded in death by her husband and parents.
