Wendy Linder, of Magna, Utah; formerly of Braham, Minnesota, passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 15, 2021 at the Cambridge Medical Center.  She was 69 years old.

A celebration of Wendy’s life and luncheon will be held on June 12, 2021  from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at the Braham Moose Lodge with all family and friends. A private ceremony for family will be held at the Rice Lake Cemetery.


Wendy was born in Braham, Mn to Edward & Darlene (Schmakel) Mattson on August 18, 1951. She grew up in the Braham area and lived in Minnesota until moving to her daughters in Utah about 7 years ago.

Wendy was married on January 11, 1968 to Vern Linder , they later divorced and she has 3 children with her former spouse.

She worked at Blue Fox Tackle in Cambridge, Mn for over 20 years and she really enjoyed her job making fishing tackle. She finished out her working years with Allina Clinic in Cambridge, Mn where she worked in the charts department before she retired.

Wendy was the Minnesota Vikings #1 Fan, her favorite player was Adam Thielen. She enjoyed watching them play each week and re-watching old games as well. Other hobbies she enjoyed over the years was bowling on a league in Braham and also going out dancing with friends and family but her favorite hobby was household painting whether it was a wall, cabinets, dressers, etc.

Wendy was known for her fun loving and giving heart, she was so caring, she would help anyone in any way she could, she was kind and made countless friends over the years. She loved each one of them and they were not only her friends but became family too.

She was most proud of her grandkids and great grandkids and loved watching them grow up. She would brag about them any chance she would get. She was an awesome grandma to her furry grandkids too. We know she is up in heaven having her bologna and cheese lunches with Kenny and sneaking Joey treats off her plate too!

She is preceded in death by her father Edward, mother Darlene, her brother Eddie and many beloved family and friends.

She is survived by her daughters, Julie (Damone), Jill (James); son, Adam (Terri); Sister, Sandy (Bob) and Brother Gary (Linda); grandkids, Ashley, Jeff, Tyler, Brandon, Alyssa, Trisha, Travis, Tyler, Aiden, Maddie, and Emma; great grandkids, Teagan, Jake, Tony, and Riley and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and a very special man in her life

  6. Wendy, I am having a hard time, I was so excited to meet you for lunch this year, to swap stories of our kids and grandkids. I was just thinking about how our lives were identical years ago, being first time gmas, to beautiful little girls, all the time we spent together in Braham, how much you helped me thru rough times, I knew I could talk to you about everything, you would never judge me.

  8. Wendy, I cannot even express my thoughts. It makes me sad that we can no longer hear your voice or see your face except for in photos. :( Sending hugs to heaven. ❤️

  9. Wendy, Wendy…you left far too soon.
    Such good memories of when we lived in the trailer court and spent time with our 4 kids at least 5 days a week. Cannot believe that was 49 years ago.
    So glad Kenny and I got to see you in October, didn’t know it would be the very last time.
    You were one of the kindest, nicest, funniest, caring people I ever had the pleasure of knowing. The world seems a little darker and sadder without you.
    Tell Sandy and Bob Tipp hi from us, will you? As Roy Rogers would say…”til we meet again”.
