Linda Taylor

Linda Taylor was born October 4, 1952 in Chamberlain, South Dakota to Louie and Mary Jane Hieb. She was called Home on March 7, 2014 in Fort Vermilion, Alberta, Canada. Linda spent her early years growing up on a farm in South Dakota and attending a one room school house through 8th grade. Her family moved to the Bitterroot Valley in Montana where she attended Darby High School, graduating in 1969. She spent the next 30 years living in the Bitterroot, guiding, farming and raising her two children, Leo James Taylor Jr. and Stacie Ann Taylor. She decided the Bitterroot was getting too crowded and went to Canada in 1999 to live out her lifelong dream of homesteading and farming in rural Alberta. She was actively involved in the Canadian Pony Club and was growing her own herd of purebread Canadian horses. She was adventerous, honest and hard working. She loved to share her knowledge of horses and animal husandry with others and was able to touch many lives teaching others. She will be fondly remembered by all who knew her. She is survived by a brother Jacob Hieb, sisters Mary Ann Hieb and Sara Goetke, son Leo Taylor, Jr, daughter Stacie Heiner, grandson Luke Taylor, and grandaughters Celeste Ingersoll, Cierra Ingersoll, and Ashley Taylor. A celebration of Linda's life will be held in July in Fort Vermilion, Alberta. A beloved mother, cherished grandmother, loyal sister and faithful friend; always loved, forever missed.
