Linda Susan Avery


Linda Susan Avery, age 67 of Mazeppa passed away on Thursday December 28 after a long battle with cancer. Linda passed away peacefully at Rochester Methodist Hospital.

Linda was born on April 26, 1956 in Lake City, MN to Jerry and Clara Turner. Linda grew up in the Lake City area, moved to Michigan for years and then back to this area. Linda was always a very hard worker. She worked at Lakeside Canning, Greenway in Mazeppa and Oronoco Gas & Go.

Linda loved spending her time fishing, thrift shopping, painting and creating things with her rocks, gardening, canning, digging up flowers in the ditches around the area and transplanting them in her yard. She had the biggest heart and was certainly known as a funny, crazy character.

Linda is survived by her beloved dog Munchie, her aunts Dorothy Turner of Michigan, Elvina Groth of Goodhue, many other relatives, cousins and friends who loved and helped her over the years. A special thank you to Jim Marx for his home, continued kindness and for taking in her dog Munchie.

Linda is preceded in death by her son David Trost, her parents, sister Sherri Turner, uncles Vernon (Smokey) Turner, Lloyd Turner and aunt Marion Jorgenson.

A memorial service will be held at 11:00 on Saturday January 13th at South Troy Church with Colleen Hoeft Officiating, with lunch to follow. She will be buried later at Lakewood Cemetery, Lake City MN.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the First State Bank Mazeppa for donations to local charities.
