Her Life


Linda Jo Sessions, 71, of Hurricane, Utah, died of heart failure on March 13, 2016   She was born October 12, 1944 to loving parents, Earl A. & Frances Thompson Wickham in Pocatello, ID.  When Linda was 2 years old, her family moved to St. Anthony where her father worked on the dry farm in Drummond, Idaho.  Linda’s great grandfather, Earl Montel Wickham, originally homesteaded this farm in 1904.   Linda attended school in St. Anthony, met and married Clinton Bergeson and they had one son, Klett Bergeson, they later divorced,  Linda then moved to Salt Lake City where she attended LDS Business School.   She married Lynn Sessions and had a son, David Sessions, they too later divorced.

Linda was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  She loved her children, grandchildren, her family, her friends and her home town of St. Anthony.  She enjoyed telling stories, making people laugh with her funny, sometimes outrageous sayings that she learned over the years from her mom and dad.  Linda had a beautiful smile, enjoyed talking with people, learning about family history, gardening and crocheting.  As a single mom, she worked hard to support her boys and tried to live as near to them as she could.  She wanted to be part of their lives and enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren. 

Unfortunately, over the years, her health deteriorated and eventually caused her to slow down.  The last few years, she had to leave her receptionist job in Salt Lake City and move to a facility that would help her manage her health issues.  Even with her valiant effort, her passing came as a surprise to her family….she will be missed.

She is survived by two sisters, Bonnie (Gene) Hill, Pocatello, ID and Francine (Tom) Best, Caldwell, ID and a brother, Kent (Linda) Wickham, Windsor, CO.  Also her children, Klett (Kim) Bergeson, Caldwell, ID, David (Misty) Sessions, Hurricane, UT, Clay (Tanya) Shelton, American Fork, UT, Vikki Boyt, West Jordan, UT, grandchildren Brittany Bergeson, Alex Sessions, Cassie & Spencer Shelton, Jeremey, Brittney & Ashley Boyt and 2 great grandchildren, Mya and Krew.  Linda was preceded in death by her parents and a granddaughter, Shelli Brown.
