November 10, 2010 - Dear Editor,

For the past 20 years, hundreds of children have enjoyed trick-or-treating at the haunted house on 77 James St. in. Ortonville. Linda Byorth-Detrio, in her 'Mesmerelda' persona has delighted in providing family-friendly spooky scenes including an alien dissection, a bubbling and creature-filled witches' brew, and a zombie family watching "Nightmare before Christmas." Every year brought more scares as she added fog machines, a casket with a living corpse, and a living scarecrow. Over the years, many of her friends added their own spooky selves into the mix. "I love when the kids follow along with my character and enjoy this as much as I do,"Linda said. "I will truly miss doing this for the kids."

This year was her last in Ortonville. She limited her decorating to the outside yard but still managed to provide a spooktacular evening for all. Linda's next Halloween will be in Texas, closer to her children. She will be greatly missed, especially on Hallo's Eve.

Brenda Timmermans,

Ortonville
