On March 11, 1944, Linda Lou was born to Luther and Flora Mae Bagwell in Seagraves, TX. Linda Lou Bagwell was a drum majorette and basketball player while attending and graduating from Loop High School in Loop, Texas, Class of 1961. Linda attended beauty school in Lubbock, Texas, and after graduation, she worked in a beauty salon in Seagraves, Texas.  Linda married Coach Jim Draper on June 4, 1966, in Loop, Texas.

She loved attending her husband’s football and basketball coaching games, as well as her children’s school, sporting, and 4-H events. After Linda and her husband’s retirement, they moved to Lubbock, Texas, in 2002 and joined the Monterrey Baptist Church. Linda was an avid Texas Tech Sports fan and enjoyed supporting her grandchildren’s, niece’s, and nephew’s activities.
