Oct 16, 1943 - Feb 16, 2022
Linda Lee Welch was born in Casper, WY on October, 16th 1943 to Rhoda May Fraley and Thomas D. Welch. She spent most of her life living in Casper, WY with her family. She married her first love, Joe Holdren, early in life. With Joe she had 3 rambunctious children, Cindy, Tom and Joe. Sadly, Joe passed away when the children were still young. After his death, Linda and Elvin Munkres welcomed their daughter, Valerie Munkres. Finally, Linda married the love of her life Edward Walter. She and Ed continued to expand their family with the addition of Debbie and Rick. Their family was finally complete and they continued to raise their children until Ed’s death in 2000.
Linda was deeply loved by her family and certainly earned the name of the matriarch of the family. She often spent time with her grandchildren throughout their childhood. Often, she was working hard to keep them in line and behaving. Linda had a deep love for horses and you could regularly find photos, drawings, or statues of horses throughout her house. She also thoroughly enjoyed working on ceramic projects that she also displayed in her home. You could hear her often talking fondly of her rose garden and loved the smell of them and their beauty.
Linda is survived by her children, Cindy Jaure (Dewi), Tom Holdren (Natasha), Joe Holdren (Jill), Valerie Munkres, Rick Walter (Mary) and Debbie Carabajal (Jackie).
