Linda Anne Barta was born to Charles and Annie (Halvorson) Belter on October 4, 1936, in Grafton, ND. She attended high school in Grafton where she met her future husband, Donald Barta, of Nash, ND.

Linda raised their six children while performing the duties of a military wife, moving 21 times throughout the United States including overseas in Pusan, South Korea. Their final duty station was in Oshkosh, WI, where they retired. Their final move was to Gold Canyon, AZ, where she lived for twenty-seven years.

Linda was surrounded by music for most of her life, even playing clarinet in the Grafton High School band during the Rose Bowl Parade. She was an avid card player, enjoying whist, pinochle, cribbage, and bridge. Additional pastimes included dancing, bowling, daily crossword puzzles, casino visits, and watching football, often taking her grandson’s dollar in a friendly bet when the Green Bay Packers played the Minnesota Vikings. She was a voracious reader and volunteered for many years at the MountainBrook Village Library.

Linda died peacefully in her home on February 18, 2022, at the age of 85. She is survived by her children,: Paige (Larry) Waalkens, Gold Canyon, AZ; Craig (Candy) Barta, Albuquerque, NM; Pamela (Kurt) Vandermeer, Halstad, MN; Bradley (Kari) Barta, Venice, FL; Bruce Barta of Lafayette, CO. Other surviving family members include her brother Earl, San Diego, CA; two grandsons, six granddaughters, three great-grandsons, and six great-granddaughters.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Donald, their son Conan, her brother, Orvald, and her sister, Violet.

    Miss you Sis. Lots of great memories of car treks to Seattle and Las Cruces. Be in peace.

    The Bartas are among our family’s oldest and dearest friends, going back to
    Beulah days. Our paths have crisscrossed many times since. Last week I was looking through a photo album of our 1980 visit to see Linda and Don when they lived in Virginia. Linda was a great host-after showing us the sights of Washington, DC every day, she provided Happy Hour which included beer and fresh boiled shrimp-we never ate breaded shrimp again!

  3. Dori says:

    Linda had a great sense of humor and always offered a warm hug

  4. Luanne and Ray Johnson says:

    Our heartfelt condolences go out to our Barta cousins and their families. Aunt Linda was so bright and quick witted. I can hear her unforgettable laugh when thinking of her. May all the cherished memories each of you have bring some light and comfort during this sad time.
