Lorinda Bell (Sexton) Tell

1938 - 2021


Linda was born on a farm near Osage, MN to Ray and Gertrude Sexton. Her family owned and ran the general store in Pinewood, MN in the fifties. She helped out there until her fathers death. After moving to Bemidji and starting college, she met Roger Tell and the rest is history. They remained together, in love, for 61 years.

She raised two daughters and loved her time with family at their lake home. She spent years gardening, long Jeep rides with her honey, reading, Garden Club and politics.

She had strong opinions that she would share with anyone (to the consternation of husband and daughters). She could draw and paint but never thought she was good enough. (she was)

Linda will be missed by her daughters, Laurie and Terri, grandchildren, Dylan (Shannon) Anderson, Alex Buscher, great-grandchildren, Cody, Arlo and her brother, Ted (Carole) Sexton.

Condolences may be sent to Terri & Laurie, 1311 Rodeo Dr. NW, Bemidji, MN  56601.
