Linda Terrel

Indiana United States
(b. 1947 - d. 2014)

Linda (Fennimore) Terrel was born on February 19, 1947 in Kokomo, Indiana USA. On November 6, 2014 at age 67, she passed away in Noblesville, Indiana. In 1972, she was married to Gary Terrel. Together they had one son and two grandchildren. One grandson also preceded her in death. She graduated with honors in 1965 from Kokomo High School and in 1970 she earned a master's degree in Music Education from Ball State University. Linda became an accredited La Leche League (LLL) Leader in 1979 and for 33 years was involved with LLL of Indiana handling various responsibilities, conducting LLL Group Meetings, telephone help for breastfeeding mothers, and in administrative roles for the organization.

Her great passion for music re-emerged during her mid-life and she immersed herself into the world of the performing arts. As an outstanding advocate of the arts, she was responsible for many contributions and accomplishments, and leadership roles with a choir, arts alliance, and musicals. For nearly 20 years Linda was a volunteer grant application writer. She helped secure more than $100,000 in funds for various theatre groups. She was a stage manager, director, box office worker, fund raiser, piano/keyboard player and occasional actress (her career was capped off by winning an Indianapolis Encore Association award as actress in a supporting role). Her greatest joy was attending Epworth Forest Choir School each summer to play inspirational music with folks she termed, "The nicest group of people I have ever met." They seemed to think Linda fit in very, very well. Despite her commitments to the arts, Linda always prioritized and deeply loved her family.

In lieu of flowers, the family requested contributions in Linda's memory may be made to the Cass Co. Community Foundation, P.O. Box 441, Logansport, IN 46947, where a fund is being established to provide an annual scholarship in Linda's name.
