A 1968 graduate of Glenelg High School in Glenelg, MD, she worked as an administrative assistant with Ohio State Highway Patrol office for 20 years. With a quick wit and a sharp tongue, she was also known to occasionally display a “slight bit” of sarcasm. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, who affectionately called her Nana. Lin was a longtime member of the Marysville Church of Christ, was an avid music lover, enjoyed sewing, fishing and camping, and was formerly very active with the Boy Scouts of America.

On November 29, 1968 in Elliott City, MD, she married her husband of nearly 46 years, Richard G. Herd, and he preceded her in death on August 26, 2014. In addition to her husband and parents, she was also preceded in death by a brother, Ernie Harris, Jr.
She is survived by her daughter, Lori (Brian) Hunziker of Columbus; a son, James Herd of Marysville; and her grandchildren, Brian (Sarah) Showalter, Katie and Hannah Showwalter and Abigail Medeiros.
