She taught health and physical education while also coaching many sports teams over time. After 29 years, she eventually retired in 2007 from Milan Junior Senior High School. It was after she retired that Linda often enjoyed reading, canning, gardening, flowers, and volunteering in the community. More than anything, she loved her time with her family and grandchildren.

She was the President of the Golden Rule Club and the Secretary for the Milan Community Dollars for Scholars. Linda was an active member of both the 1954 Museum Board of Directors and the Good Samaritan Hope Chest. As a former teacher, she was also a member of both the Indiana Retired Teachers Association and the Ripley County Retired Teachers Association

Linda was our cheerleader sponsor when we were in High School back in the early 1970s. She taught us a lot about self-respect and the value of a hard work ethic. I loved her laugh! I remember when she and Mr. Baurley first began dating! They were such a cute couple and we girls used to tease Linda! She would laugh and tell us that was enough but she would blush. Linda was a wonderful person. I’ve stayed in touch with her all these years and I have always thought the world of her! I am so saddened to learn of her passing and will keep all of her family in my thoughts and prayers.

In memory of Linda White Baurley.
Fred and I both remember Linda as a friendly and caring person.  Never, in all  our years of knowing her, can we recall any negative or unkind action or comment from her.  The world will be a little less because of losing Linda.
We will keep all of you in our prayers.  Losing a spouse or a parent is always so hard.  God bless and keep you in peace and hope of seeing Linda again.
