For Linda’s love of the visual and performing arts, the Linda Mae Mahon Lema Memorial Scholarship has been formed in her memory and in her honor. Because of Linda’s deep roots in Elk Grove, she certainly had a keen interest in local history, but her real passion was for the visual and performing arts. When she traveled, she sought out and enjoyed all forms of art.
