Linda Luella Maxey was born December 14, 1948 in St. Paul, Minnesota to Robert and Viola Miller. Even at a young age, Linda had a deep love for animals of all kinds. Her family owned some farm property on the East Side of St. Paul where she learned to ride horse and competed at various skill events in the area.

One of her favorite places to escape and spend time with her family was at the family cabin on Big Sandy Lake in northern Minnesota. Linda endured though several health issues in her life, but was always willing to help those around her. She will be deeply missed.
