Duchess of Texas Gemini XXXV,
The Duchess of Texas XXXV, Linda Bailey, was born and raised in Eugene, Oregon. It took a long time to get to the South, but when Linda arrived, she knew she was always a Southerner at heart. Although Linda moved with her husband and family to San Antonio, Texas, in 1983, she didn’t understand the meaning of Southern hospitality until she moved to Shreveport, Louisiana. Linda and her husband moved to Shreveport in 2019 and were asked to join the Krewe of Gemini. Her first year to ride was in 2020, just before Covid closed everything down.
Linda is an avid tennis player and has learned to play golf since moving to Shreveport. Linda grew up in the Oregon countryside, riding horses, and raising cattle. She has an artistic side, is a quilter, and enjoys designing baby quilts. In the last couple of years, she has taken up pottery which has become her new artistic passion. Linda and her husband Steven, the Krewe of Gemini Duke of Texas XXXV, celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary last December. Linda would like to thank everyone for allowing her the honor of being selected as the Krewe of Gemini Duchess of Texas XXXV.
