Faribault, MN

Linda M. Krogh, age 80 of Faribault, MN passed away unexpectedly on Friday, January 20, 2023 at her home.

Linda Marie, the daughter of Oliver and Eleanore (Tonjum) Noble was born on July 13, 1942 in Chicago, IL.  They moved to Faribault and she attended Faribault High School and graduated with the class of 1960.  Linda always stayed in touch with her classmates and loved them dearly.  After high school she attended the Minnesota School of Business and earned her Associates Degree.  On September 19, 1970 she was united in marriage to David Nelson.  He preceded her in death on June 5, 1996.  Linda later met Ken Krogh and they were married in Las Vegas in 2002.  In 1987 Linda began a 20 year career at Mercury Minnesota, retiring in 2008.  In retirement Linda went to work at the Faribault Animal Center in 2012.  She absolutely loved working with her coworkers and customers as they were all family to her.  They remember her for her infectious laugh and say if you ever asked Linda a question it was if you were the only person in the room.  She adored working with her puppies and she did adopt her beloved baby boy Riley from the Animal Center.  She retired from the Animal Center in 2019.

Linda loved all things that included family, friends, dogs, traveling, flowers, food, art and being where the laughs were!  Linda was always up for lunch or dinner with family and friends and also enjoyed going for long rides and seeing new things.  Linda was also a world traveler and collected many pieces of unique art.

She is survived by her husband, Ken Krogh of Warsaw, MN; by her siblings, Sandra Reuvers of Wilmar, MN and William (RaLynn) Boyd of Faribault, MN; by her stepgrandson, Alex Tello; by her beloved dog Riley and by many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her first husband, David Nelson, by her brother, Clifton Noble, by her sister, Susan K. Noble, by her stepchildren, Kory Krogh and Kelly Krogh and by her stepgrandson Marcus Krogh.
