Linda was born October 27, 1950, in Kasson, MN, the daughter of Icel R. and Ella J. (Mulnix) Davis. Her family moved to Iowa when she was very young, and she made Ft. Dodge her lifetime home and took pride in being a true 'Dodger'. She graduated from Fort Dodge Senior High in 1969. She liked animals of all kinds, but especially horses and cats. She worked as a vet lab tech for years and delighted in helping the animals that she loved so much. Later in life Linda took much joy in working alongside her son at their cell phone store. Visiting with the customers and helping them gave her great fulfillment. Linda enjoyed fishing, gardening, art, being outdoors and adult coloring. She also delighted in crafting, cross-stitching, and making beautiful Christmas ornaments that she shared with many family members and friends.
