ELROY—Linda Darlene (Schultz) Siebecker, 73, of Elroy, died Sept. 7, 2019, at Gunderson Lutheran Medical Center in LaCrosse.

Linda was born July 17, 1946, to Marcella and Harold Schultz in Vernon County, Wis.

She was raised in the Elroy area, graduating from Royall High School in 1964. Linda married the love of her life, Ronald “Butch” Siebecker Nov. 6, 1965, at Zion Lutheran Church, Elroy.

She worked as a waitress at various establishments, such as Carpenter’s Supper Club and the Alaskan Supper Club, before being hired at Pleasant Acres in the housekeeping department. After that facility closed, she worked at Sand Ridge in the laundry/housekeeping department until her retirement in 2012.

Linda was known for her keen card-playing ability, her insanely large animated Santa Claus collection and, mostly, for her fierce loyalty and love for her husband, children and grandchildren.

Each year, even when times were tough, Linda found a way to give to those less fortunate. She anonymously donated bikes and other toys to local children during the holidays.
