Linda Marie Baughman, daughter of Ora Dean and Freda Fay Carrico was born July 21, 1949 in New Virginia, Iowa and passed away peacefully at her home in Bondurant, Iowa on April 8, 2024. Linda's journey through life was defined by dedication, perseverance, and love, leaving behind a legacy that will forever inspire those who were fortunate enough to know her.

She valued education, graduating from I-35 High School in 1968 and later pursuing her education thru computer training classes to enhance her work skills.

She was united in marriage to Michael "Mike" Baughman on March 7, 1971 in New Virginia and two children blessed this union.

Beyond her professional achievements, Linda found joy in various hobbies and interests. She was passionate about sewing, crafting, and creating and collecting porcelain dolls. Shopping was another favorite pastime, especially when shared with her girls. Linda's unwavering support extended to her family, always cheering on her grandchildren at their dance competitions and various other activities.

As a member of the Bondurant Mothers Club, Linda embraced community involvement and cherished the bonds created during her children's formative years.

Linda was preceded in death by her father, mother, paternal grandfather, Ora Carrico, paternal grandmother, Mabel Estella Carrico and her step-mother, Mildred "Darlene" Carrico.
