Linda Besecker inherited land from her former teacher Ruth Henry.

Henry, Besecker’s third grade teacher, inspired Besecker to become a teacher too.

They taught together at the former Barrett Elementary School.

As Henry aged, Besecker took care of her and when Henry passed away she willed her land to Besecker.

Five years ago the land became Paradise Lavender farm in Cresco.
