Linda M. (Widner) Tiger January 6, 1948 – January 27, 2017
Linda (Widner) Tiger, age 69, passed away January 27, 2017, after a long battle with emphysema.
Linda, a Colorado native, was a successful business owner; most recently a resident of Lander, Wyoming, where she and Dwaine ran a successful catering company. Linda was born on January 6, 1948, in Paonia Colorado to Lloyd and Elsie Widner. Linda was raised and attended school in Hotchkiss CO, alongside her 3 brothers and 2 sisters.
Linda lived and enjoyed life to its fullest. She loved to travel and enjoyed being outdoors, whether sitting and listening to a creek rush by, or sitting next to the campfire. When she couldn't be outside she enjoyed reading mysteries and crime novels. When you asked somebody what they liked most about Linda their answer was usually "she was so easy to talk to." Linda cared deeply for people, and was genuinely interested hearing their stories; in what you had to say.
Linda had two children, Gina and Bud Reed, and Three stepsons Preston Tiger, Thomas Tiger, Orville Reed, numerous 'adopted' grandchildren, and great-grand children, as well as many nieces and nephews who adored her. Linda is survived by her husband Dwaine, sister Louis Hutton, brothers Jim Widner and Bob Widner and her son Bud Reed. Linda was preceded in death by her daughter Gina, parents Lloyd and Elsie, brother Ed and sister Ellen.
Memorial services will be March 4, 2017, at 10:30 am at Holy Rosary Catholic Church 163 Leedy Dr., Lander, Wyoming.
