Linda Ann Krull of Dillon passed away on Sept. 7, 2020. She was born on July 9, 1947 in Marshall, Minnesota. She and her parents, Percy and Gertrude Faber, lived in Ocheyedan, Iowa, where Linda lived until adulthood.

Linda spent her youth on the farm in the company of her grandmother and cousins, where much of her time was spent outside exploring and being the daredevil she was. Linda was an active member of her church youth group, where she began fraternizing with the young man that would become her husband, Irwin C. Krull. After graduating from Sibley High School in 1965, Linda and Irwin were married that August. It was on their honeymoon that they discovered their love of Montana. They began their married life together in Sibley, Iowa, until the farming bug bit, and soon they returned to their roots to take on their first farm. As time went on, Linda and Irwin bought their own farm and settled near George, Iowa until 1984, when they made the big decision to move their family to Alder, Montana. There they owned and operated the K-Bar-6 Ranch until selling and purchasing their current ranch near Dillon in 2005.

Linda was a jack of all trades. Her days were filled with raising an active family that had grown to four children and working side-by-side with Irwin on the family ranch, as well as being an accomplished tailor, a dental assistant, and a traveling caterer, building a clientele all over Montana and Wyoming. Linda loved to meet new people, charming them with her wit while cooking for them. It was often said that once you had a taste of Linda’s cooking, you were smitten! Linda and Irwin recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary.

Linda is survived by her husband, Irwin Krull; daughters Lana Krull-Gar of Billings and Tina Ramsdell of Gresham, Oregon; sons Chad (Christina) Krull of Bozeman, and Ryan (Faith) Krull of Hayden, Idaho; as well as 11 grandchildren: Cody Krull of Missoula; Kate and Elizabeth Gar of Spokane, Washington; Jared Gar of Seattle, Washington; Jack and Jane Ramsdell of Gresham, Oregon; Landon Gar of Bozeman; Emily Krull of Belgrade; and Wyatt, Weston and William Krull of Hayden, Idaho.

Linda is preceded in death by her parents, Percy and Gertrude Faber.

Visitation was held at Brundage Funeral Chapel in Dillon on Sept. 11, from 12-2 p.m.
