Her parents were the late George Robert Schultze and Elsie Huttick. Linda received her Bachelor’s and Masters degrees in Biology from West Chester University.

She was also employed as a Registration Manager for their Agricultural Products Department. Linda retired form Dupont in 2007.
Linda always loved animals. That led her to become a member of the Tri State Bird Rescue located in Newark, DE. She volunteered to be on call to pick up injured birds and take them to the bird rescue facility for care and healing. Linda told tales of rescuing every kind of bird in this area, from Robins to Bald Eagles. She also participated in the yearly Tri State Giant Yard Sale by collecting saleable donations and running the book table. Linda was also a tireless ambassador for the rescue service, telling friends, acquaintances and strangers about the work of the Tri State Bird Rescue. In 2013, she was awarded the Unsung Hero Award by that organization.
Linda also loved playing the card game Bridge with friends at several locations in the Elkton area and at the Newark Senior Center.
She was predeceased by her husband of 43 years, Richard T. Mullin, her parents, her brother James G. Schultze of Dallas, Texas, and a large number of beloved cats. She is survived by a nephew James E. Schultze of Atlanta, GA.
