On the evening of January 21st, 2024, our beloved Linda Lee passed on from her mortal journey with her eternal companion by her side. She finally received the hug she needed from her Mother and Father in law- both of whom passed while she was sleeping.
Linda was born on July 1st, 1958 in National City, California. Her family resided there while her father was stationed in the Navy in San Diego. She grew up in Centerville, Utah where she developed her love for horses. Her favorite horse was Misty, who she rode all the time, with Jeff’s help.
Mom was very musically talented. She played the piano beautifully, sang in the choir, and also played the guitar. Believe it or not, Linda even used to love sports and she excelled at them. She loved to play softball and basketball, and she played actively with her church groups growing up.
Mom was one of the most intelligent people any of us knew. She was always buried in a book (or 10). She would regularly go the library and bring home a stack of books, and just devour every one of them. Education was important to her. She was always learning something new, and loved sharing knowledge with her family and friends. She was the trivia champion.
After a whirlwind romance, she married the love of her life on November 9th, 1979 in the Salt Lake City Temple. They dated for only two weeks before they got engaged, and just recently celebrated their 44th wedding anniversary. Their home was blessed with four beautiful children, who eventually made her a grandmother. She loved doing things with her family. Family was absolutely the most valuable thing in her life. She loved hiking together, going to concerts, camping, and traveling. She said her favorite trip was when her and Dad took their trailer to Northern California. Mom was the definition of a supportive and compassionate person. She was the best listener- she never judged anyone or their circumstances. Her service and generosity to others was immeasurable.
Linda is survived by her husband Brad: children, Adrienne (Bryant) of Lehi, UT, Shannon (Jeremy) of Morgan, UT, Joey (Andrew) of Brattleboro, VT, and Shon (Kaytlin) of Bountiful, UT; six grandchildren- Taydan, Mateo, Olivia, Preslee, Annistyn, Rowyn; with another grandchild and her first great grandchild on the way! She is also survived by her Father Rex Beazer, siblings Keri, Sheryl (Marty), Jeff (Kelli), Holly (Greg), Jen (James), and Greg (Lisa). She was preceded in death by her Mother Patricia Beazer, her Father in-law Max Dutson, and her grandparents.
