Linda Clough

August 26, 1959 — January 20, 2023


Linda Clough, age 63, a resident of Herman, MN, died on Friday, January 20, 2023, at her home.

Linda Lee Ferrara was born in Long Branch, NJ on August 26, 1959, one of four children born to Carl Francis and Josephine Ann (Joseph) Ferrara. She attended school in New Jersey and graduated from high school in 1977. Linda left home after high school and lived in many states, including, Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin and Minnesota. She met Jim Clough in 1996 and they were married in Sparta, Wisconsin on January 28, 1999. Following their union, Linda and Jim moved to Sleepy Eye and eventually Delta Junction, Alaska in 2003. They returned back to Minnesota in 2006, and have remained here since.

Linda worked as a cook for many years and knew her way around any kitchen she found herself in. When not at work, she enjoyed spending time with Jim going on countless “joyrides” and hooking up the camper and spending the weekend at almost every local campground. She loved spending time with her family, whether it was her family at home, with her dogs: Dozer, Zeus and Sam, or her church family at Victory in the Cross Church in Elbow Lake. She enjoyed telling stories and sharing with everyone she knew about her love of Jesus.

Linda is survived by her husband, Jim Clough of Herman, MN; children: Nicole Arroyo of Glenwood, MN, Jason Arroyo of Herman, MN and Carl Arroyo of Elbow Lake, MN; eight grandchildren and two siblings. She was preceded in death by her parents and one sister, Jeanna Ferrara.

According to Linda’s wishes, no services will be held
