Linda was raised in the Lawton/Cache area. She attended grade school at Ft Sill, spent several years at Lawton High before moving to Cache and graduating from Cache High School. Linda married David Dupler in 1960 at Ft Sill, and spent the next 51 years as part of the Cache community. She was actively involved in her children’s lives throughout their youth, especially with the Boy Scouts where Linda served as a member of the Black Beaver Board and held the distinction of receiving the Silver Beaver Award, and the Silver Fawn Award.
