Linda S. Archer

Linda Sue Archer, age 68, of Bellevue, died July 23, 2020. She passed to the next world peacefully home to her loved ones in heaven. Linda was born July 6, 1952, the daughter of Harry and Velma (Decant) Miller. Linda grew up in Olivet and then met her husband Joe, married 47 years. They moved to Charlotte where they started their family. They then had the opportunity to move the family to a farm in Bellevue and also be close to their dear friends Phil and Dee Vahs. Linda loved taking the kids to the rodeos, camping with friends, sporting events and of course the Eaton County Fair. She would often be seen at the grandchildren’s events and watch them run and show at the Eaton County Fair. Linda loved spending time outdoors. She enjoyed collecting ceramic frogs and decorated her house with them. Linda was known to make great meals and her holiday spreads were always something that everyone looked forward to. Linda’s love, and indominable spirit will always be loved and remembered.
Passing on leaves a heartache that no one can heal, but love leaves memories that no one can steal.
Linda is survived by her children, Lori Briggs (Tim), Tom Archer (Meghann) and Chad Archer (Anne); 7 loving grandchildren, Mikayla, Gabe (Gabrielle), Noah, Nick, Gracie, Teaghann and Cameron. She is preceded in death by her beloved husband, Carl Joseph (Joe) Archer; parents, Harry (Bill) and Velma Miller; and Virgil and Katherine Archer.
