Linda Marie Sherrill, June 30, 1951 — Dec. 12, 2011
Long time and beloved resident of Moose Pass, Linda Marie Sherrill died Dec. 12, 2011 at her home in Moose Pass. She was surrounded by her family.
Linda was born in Belleville, Ill. on June 30, 1951 to Wayne and Betty Thompson. The family then moved to Portland, Ore. before settling down in Anchorage in 1968. She met her husband, Wes Sherrill, fell in love and was married for 34 years. They moved to Moose Pass in 1981, where they owned and operated the Moose Pass Inn. This was the place where she filled the stomachs, and warmed the hearts, of many people who came through their door. Linda enjoyed life and friends. She could light up a room with her smile and humor. She loved the simple things in life such as, feeding the birds, taking care of her flowers, and most of all, spending time with her family. Linda was also very passionate about slowing the traffic down, to the speed limit in Moose Pass, for the safety of her community. After she found the Lord, Linda was a long time member of the Moose Pass Community Church. She enjoyed the fellowship and worship that she shared with her Christian brothers and sisters.
Linda is survived by her husband, Wes Sherrill; her three children, Wesley, Troy and Willow; son in law, Tripp; grandsons, Clarence and Harry; mother, Betty; and siblings, Greg, Shelia and Jeff.
In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Moose Pass Community Church, P.O. Box 111, Moose Pass, AK 99631. A celebration of life will be arranged at a later date.
