Linda M. Erickson, 73, passed away Tuesday, April 18, 2023. Linda passed from her forever paradise home in the arms of her loving husband, Rick Erickson. She was born on December 17, 1949, in Whitefish, Montana, to Richard and Mary Swennes. Linda was an angel of God. She went to be with her Savior to fly with the butterflies, the dragonflies, and make anything beautiful. She was a caring mom, grandma, great grandma, sister, and friend. Linda was the animal whisperer; wild or tame they came from everywhere. Hummingbirds were her favorite. You could find her most of the time in the sun at the lake or Libby Creek, which was her favorite spot. She could float for hours and would have lived in the water if she could’ve. Linda was a very hard worker and put everyone else first. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it.
Linda is survived by her husband Rick Erickson of Libby; children Angela Breniman and family of Washington; Mike Johnson and his wife Janet from Havre, Montana; Laura Johnson Daley and her husband Scot Daley; grandson Tanner Norenberg; son Kevin Johnson of Butte Montana and his children Ashlynd and her husband Chris Wilcox; great grandchildren Huntleigh, Adelle, Kemper, and Quillen; stepson Rodney Erickson; and several friends and cousins.
Linda is proceeded in death by her parents Richard and Mary Swennes; her brother Jay Swennes; and her always loving parents, Helen and Rod Erickson on Dolphin Way.
