Linda Louise Hill Myers, loving wife, mom, and grandma passed away with her dear husband by her side on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 at the age of 75 due to the effects of Alzheimer's disease.
Linda was born April 3, 1947 to Marion and Esther Hill in Sacramento, California. She had a happy childhood and attended Hiram W. Johnson High School in Sacramento. She went on to graduate with a Bachelors of Arts degree with an emphasis in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah. She also earned her teaching certificate and started working as an elementary school teacher at Ethel Boyes in Idaho Falls, Idaho. It was during this time she was introduced to her future husband, R. Brent Myers by her roommate, and Brent’s sister Kathy.
Linda and Brent were married in the Oakland California Temple on June 23, 1973. They continued to reside in Idaho Falls raising 5 children. While the kids were young she switched from being a full-time school teacher to a full-time mother. Love of music and the piano led Linda to teach piano lessons to her kids and other children in the neighborhood. Music and the piano proved to be a source of joy for Linda as she was often heard practicing for choirs she was asked to accompany or just having fun playing a duet with Brent.
Linda was a life-long member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She served in many church organizations throughout her life such as the Relief Society, Young Women’s, and Primary. She shared her talents in various musical capacities and also enjoyed serving in the temple.
She was preceded in death by her parents Marion and Esther Hill, and a grandson, Gavin Myers. She is survived by her siblings Paul Hill, LeeAnne Larsen, Steven Hill, Laura Gray, and Carolyn Clark and her husband of nearly 50 years Brent Myers. She leaves behind a legacy of her five children and their spouses Jeffrey (Jessica), Nathan (Heidi), Heidi Birch (Andy), Scott, Todd (Kaila), and her 21 grandchildren.
The family would like to thank the staff of Foxtail Senior Living Memory Care Unit for taking great care of her during her battle with Alzheimer’s. In lieu of flowers, a donation could be made in her honor to the Alzheimer’s Association of Boise
