The daughter of Raymond Riley and Martha Hendrix Riley was born September 27th, 1961 in Claremore, Oklahoma. She was a life long Rogers County resident. Living mostly between Claremore and Chelsea. As she became older her focus was on raising her family. She did however work as a nurse's aide for several years, and for Zebco, Trece, and Inola Casting.

Linda also had a knack for drawing. She created many wonderful pieces, mostly in the Native American style.
