Linda was born April 29, 1945, in Madison to the late Elmer and Marie (Paull) Cullen. She grew up on the family dairy farm in Ridgeway and graduated from Dodgeville High School. She attended Madison Business College before moving to Plover where she worked at Hardware Mutual Insurance and the Rice Clinic. For 30 years, she worked alongside her husband's family on the Isherwood potato farm. Later in life, she worked as a front desk clerk for the Elizabeth Inn in Plover.
Linda married Robert Isherwood on October 21, 1967, in Ridgeway. He died October 20, 2004. She enjoyed her home in Plover that they remodeled and made their own together.
Linda was a faithful member of the Buena Vista United Methodist Church where she taught Sunday School, prepared and mimeographed the weekly bulletin and was a Women's Circle member for many years. Later, she became a member of the River Falls United Methodist Church. She enjoyed staying connected to friends and family, golfing, cross-stitching, collecting cardinals, playing Scrabble and Words with Friends, playing cards, baking and cooking.
