Together they farmed near Ola, SD until 1978 when they moved to Rapid City, SD where she worked as a medical secretary for Black Hills Eye Institute. She also worked at St. Mary’s Hospital and several clinics in Pierre along with Cedar Shore Resort in Chamberlain. She always enjoyed the special people she met at work. During their 50 years of marriage, Linda and Rodney built and lived in several different houses, served as Sunday School and Bible School teachers and traveled to 48 states and Mexico. Linda enjoyed being a farm wife, the outdoors, riding horses, fixing fences, swimming, boating, square dancing, playing cards, fishing, driving tractors and long walks along the river – all the while raising three children and supporting their activities as they grew up. Rodney Pease, the lover of her life, passed away on March 2, 2009 after a long illness.
