Lindner, Loretta G. (14 JUN 1931 – 27 JAN 2019)

Loretta G. Lindner, 87, Greenwood, passed away on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2019, at Atrium Post-Acute Care in Marshfield. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m., on Thursday, Jan. 31, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Greenwood. Rev. Keith Kitzhaber will officiate and burial will follow in St. Mary’s Catholic Cemetery.

Loretta Gertrude Lindner was born on June 14, 1931, in the town of Eaton, rural Greenwood, to Matthias and Gertrude (nee Scherer) Lindner. She was raised on the family farm and received her education at St. Mary’s Catholic School. At the age of 14, she was stricken with polio and received treatment in Madison and therapy in Eau Claire. After her recovery, Loretta lived at home and cared for her father and mother until they passed away. She moved to the Black River View Apartments and resided there until poor health caused her to move to Atrium Post-Acute Care in Marshfield in 2017. She was a lifetime member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and was a very devout Catholic.

Loretta will be dearly missed by one brother: James Lindner of Greenwood; one sister: Helen (Richard) Esselman of Loyal; and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; six brothers: Joseph, Frank, Edward, Bernard, Lawrence, and William Lindner; and two sisters: Genevieve Budzisz and Eleanor Lindner.
