Linda was born on October 31, 1943 in Halliday, ND to August and Martha (Stern) Riegel. She grew up and attended school in Halliday and graduated from Halliday High School. On December 5, 1965 she married Elmer Sailer at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Halliday. The couple resided north of Zap, ND, where they raised their three children, Kevin, Kenny and Kathleen.

Linda was the head cook at Zap School for many years until it closed. In 1994, Linda and Elmer moved to Beulah where she also cooked at Beulah Public School, as well as at Cenex, Knife River Care Center, Southside Diner and many catering events. Cooking was Linda’s passion and she greatly enjoyed feeding others.

Linda also enjoyed making cards, stamping and sewing. She liked to attend Homemaker’s club and play pinochle and Bunco. Linda had a wonderful collection of cookbooks and also collected salt and pepper shakers. Above all, she enjoyed time spent with her family, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
