Linda Carole Williams

Linda Carole Williams, 81, passed away peacefully on April 7, 2024 in Pocatello, Idaho.

She was born on August 3, 1942 in Twin Falls, Idaho to Edwin and Audrey Elquest Hayworth.  As a young child, Linda moved frequently as her father was a welder and the family traveled for work all across the western states.

On May 28, 1960 she married Logan Williams.  They resided in Mackay, Idaho where they worked hard to provide for their family on the ranch.  Linda worked side by side with Logan and still found time to cook three square meals a day.  It was said that she made the best sourdough pancakes around on the old wood burning stove. 

Linda was a longtime resident of Mackay and was actively involved in the Order of the Eastern Star, Ladies Aide and the Historical Society.  She enjoyed crocheting, reading and spending time with her family.  She was known to make wedding and birthday cakes for the neighbors and for the community.  She was also famous for her donuts and homemade baked bread.

Linda is survived by her husband, Logan Williams, to whom she was married to for over 63 years; her son, Dusty Williams (Sharon Sterns); her daughters, Jan Machidon (Cristian) and Leann Bywater (Kurt); a son-in-law, Bill Ainslie; twelve grandchildren and twelve and a half great grandchildren.  She was preceded in death by her parents, one brother, two sisters and a daughter Jalene.

A Celebration of Life service will be held on Monday, April 15, 2024 at 11:00 a.m. at the Mackay Community Church with Pastor Mike Winters officiating.  Arrangements are under the care of the Anderson Family Funeral Home.

  1. Will miss Linda. She was as tough as nails, yet had a very soft side to her. Hard work was every day for her whether it was taking care of her family or working the ranch with Logan. She will be missed.

  2. Linda was a sweetheart! I knew her and Logan through Garth and family! Met then when I was just 12! Was always welcome to their rustic, beautiful Big Sky and mountain life! My grandson is named Logan. I will truly miss her sweet smile and the big hug she always gave me any time we met! ⛰️🌷🙏
