She was a lifelong resident of Fargo, born to Peter Wilbur Lundquist and Frieda Emilia (Unterseher) Lundquist. Linda attended Fargo Central High School and graduated in 1964. She was united in marriage to Harris Dale Scheer on March 20, 1965, at her home church, Elim Lutheran Church, in Fargo. Continuing in the footsteps of her father, Peter, who was a barber, Linda attended New York Hairdressing in 1965 and was a licensed cosmetologist until 1980. She also helped at The Dutch Maid, the ice cream shop her mother owned in downtown Fargo. Linda was employed at NDSU Dining Services, 1968-1971. Her primary employment was with Ben Franklin Middle School in Fargo, as part of the food-service staff. Linda retired (from Ben Franklin) several years ago, after more than 20 years of working there. She and Harris were blessed with more than 45 years of marriage. He preceded her in death on April 15, 2010.

She also organized the annual Elim rummage sale for years. Linda attended her children’s sporting and school events, including Robert’s cross-country meets and other community long-distance running events. She served in leadership positions in the Cubs Scouts and Boy Scouts. She also enjoyed volunteering for the Special Olympics, and the VA hospital. Linda loved her dog, Delta. She enjoyed gardening and flowers. Linda enjoyed music and was a lifelong fan of Elvis Presley. She loved her nieces and nephews from the Curtis family and treated them as her own children after their mother (Alberta) passed away.
