On Nov. 17, 2019, Linda Ann Winterholler (Abreu), wife of Gene Winterholler and mother of Alesha, passed away at the age of 62. She was born on Sept. 23, 1957 in Lowell, Massachusetts.
Linda grew up in Westford, Massachusetts, and graduated from Westford Academy High School. After graduating, she moved to Pahaska, Wyoming.
She worked at Pahaska Tepee Resort, where she fell in love with Wyoming and decided to make it her home. Later, Linda moved to Powell and opened a butcher shop, creating wonderful sausage and jerky.
She was an avid outdoors person. Hunting, fishing, gardening, and riding her horses whenever the opportunity arose were her passions. Linda was an amazing cook, crafting delicious pies that she enjoyed sharing with close friends and family. But mostly she loved life with her sweet daughter Alesha.
Linda began a job as a flagger and worked her way up to supervisor. She loved what she did, always considering herself lucky to have found a job that filled her with so much happiness. She looked forward every day to working outside and traveling around Wyoming. Linda formed lifelong relationships with some of the wonderful people she worked with, bringing her joy and peace in her life.
Linda will be remembered for her beautiful smile, quick wit, loving personality and caring soul. She was a wonderful mother, sister, wife and friend, who will forever be held close to our hearts.
