Linda Kay was born April 12, 1944, the daughter of Glenn and MylaMae (Henderson)
Moetsch in New Hampton, IA.  She attended and graduated from New Hampton High
School.  After completing her education, Linda worked in the engineering department at
Oliver Manufacturing in Charles City, IA.  In 1963, Linda began her work in the State
Farm Claims office in New Hampton from 1963 until her marriage to Roger Anderson on
September 27, 1969, at the Little Brown Church in Nashua.  Linda welcomed Roger’s
son, Scott and together they welcomed their two children, David, and Leslie.  They made
their home on a farm north of Lawler where they farmed together and raised their
family.  They later divorced but remained close friends.  In 1991, Linda began working
for Mashek Insurance/Insurance Associates in Lawler.  She proudly worked alongside
John Cuvelier and Bob Vrzak until her retirement in 2018.  Linda wasn’t one to sit still
and even filled in at work throughout her retirement.  Linda was an active member of
the Lawler community.  She was a founding member of the Turkey Valley Education
Foundation and served on the board until 2020.  During her children’s time in school,
she was a member of the Turkey Valley Music and Athletic Boosters Clubs.  Not only was
education important to Linda, but so was the city of Lawler as she also served as Mayor
for many years.  She was also a member of Congregational United Church of Christ in
New Hampton.

Linda enjoyed watching the Decorah Eagle Cam and sewing.  She truly loved sharing her
time with many through volunteering efforts for several organizations.  Her family was
her pride and joy and Linda delighted in spending time with her grandchildren.
Those left to cherish her memory are her children, Scott (Doris) Anderson of Lawler,
David (Maureen Stockman and her daughter, Grace) Anderson of Decorah, IA and Leslie
(Joe) Raymond of Lawler; her grandchildren, Beth, Nathan, Luke, and Annie; her great
grandchildren, Grant and Bodie; and several nieces, nephews and extended family

She was preceded in death by her parents and close friend and ex-husband, Roger
