Linda was born in Canora, SK on October 14th 1962 to Doreen (nee Spilchen) and Walter Lezon. Linda spent her first 2 years in Invermay living on a farm her dad worked at, then the family moved to a farm near Rowatt and spent 5 years there. At the age of 8 the family moved to Walter's fathers farm near Jedburgh. When she was 13 years old the family, including her younger siblings Johnny and Brenda, moved to Yorkton.
She met her husband Ron Kerr at a Terrier game and they were married on May 19, 1979. Ron and Linda were very much in love. They were blessed with a son and two daughters, four grandkidlets, several grandfurbabies and were adoptive parents to many of her kids friends. Everyone was welcome at the Kerr house. Food was plentiful, she was a fabulous baker, so there were often fresh goodies. And always lots of laughter to be had!
Linda loved her animals, particularly horses. She spent hours in the barn with her "hay burners". Grooming, training and showing many horses throughout the years. She taught all her kids to ride. And was always happy to show guests her horses and take them for a ride!
Linda loved having an open door for her family. And they enjoyed get togethers for any occasion! With her four wonderful grandkids running around, with assorted cats, dogs and ponies! Family time was incredibly important to her and Ron.
She was famous for her funky, delicious cakes, made for many of the special people in her life. Her crafting, her "supper experiments" and her love of bling and colorful funky hair! In her younger years Linda was an accomplished arm wrestler. She was Provincial Women's Champion 4 out of 5 years she competed.
