Linda Ball

May 29, 1967 — March 19, 2020

Crookston, MN

Linda Louise Ball, age 52, of Crookston, MN, passed away on Thursday, March 19, 2020 at her home.

Linda was born as Shara Lynn Hulst on May 29, 1967, in St. Paul, MN.  On December 29, 1968, she was placed in a permanent foster home with Leroy and Lois Ball and they named her Linda.  She lived with them in Morris, MN, until 1977 when they asked her to be placed elsewhere due to their advancing age and health.  The Balls were very attached to Linda but they worried that they would not be able to properly take care of her.  She lived at the Fergus Falls Regional Treatment Center for 10 years until being placed at a group home in East Grand Forks, MN.  In 1992, she moved to the REM group home in Crookston, MN, and lived there until her passing.  Linda attended the DAC regularly and loved singing, dancing, being outdoors and swinging.  She would spend all day outside, even sleeping, if you let her.

A graveside service for Linda will be held at 3:00 pm on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, at Oakdale Cemetery in Crookston, MN.
