Linda was preceded in death by her beloved baby son Johnny Carl Ehlers; and her two handsome husbands; and many other special loved ones.
Linda enjoyed spending time with her family, smiling, laughing, dancing, singing, walking marathons, baking Snickerdoodles and making Lefse. Linda was a caretaker and made lasting impressions on all the people she came across.
