On Dec. 8, 1972, Linda was united in marriage to Terry Beighley in Sioux Falls, S.D. She was a very talented individual who could transform something very simple into something very unique and beautiful. Linda had a love of animals and was always surrounded by them. She enjoyed the years she worked for SEMCAC and the people she served. Linda and Terry and their family devoted many hours each year planning and setting up the Rendezvous. They enjoyed spending weeks at Bancroft Park demonstrating to the young people the life that was led during this time and doing anything necessary to make the Rendezvous a success. She was an accomplished seamstress and enjoyed helping people transform their plain rooms in their homes to rooms of beauty.
