Linda M. Schuh, 69, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2016, at her home in Waukesha.
Linda was born on May 4, 1947 in San Francisco, Calif., to Julius and Elinor Farrell. She grew up in Unadilla, N. Y., where she graduated from Unatego High School. In 1968, she became a certified child care technician at St. Margaretís House and Hospital in Albany, N.Y. where she cared for many chronically ill infants and young children. She met her husband-to-be in 1969 and was married on May 8, 1971, at St. James Cathedral, Albany. Linda enjoyed sewing, baking, ballroom dancing and events where she would wear her many Edwardian period vintage dresses. She very much appreciated the many visits and correspondence in her final months with her family and many friends from Kohls and the Somewhere In Time fan club.
Linda is survived by Allen, her husband of 45 years; and sister, JoAnn Rehm of Danville, Va. She was preceded in death by her natural parents, her foster parents, Arthur and Viola Goebler, and brother, Robert Farrell.
