Linda Jane Tessmer 75, Menominee

After a month long battle with a mystery illness Linda joined her love in Heaven on August 4, 2018. She took her last breath with her children by her side at St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee, WI.
Born on June 14, 1943 to the late Jack and Ethel Bell, Linda grew up in Chicago, IL where she met the love of her life Donald Tessmer Sr. They married on June 24, 1967 in Illinois and built a family of six children together. He preceded her in death in 2014.
They moved to the U.P. in 1978 and settled in the Stephenson area where they raised their kids. In 2003 they moved to Menominee where they spent the rest of their years.
Linda worked several different factory jobs over the years but her greatest jobs of all were Mom and Grandma.
She enjoyed gardening, crossword puzzles, baking, crocheting, reading a good book, and watching her shows. Her greatest past time was spending time laughing, talking and just being with her kids and grandkids. She also never passed on a chance to cook for any one of them.
She is survived by her loving children, Scott (Linda Berg) Marinette, Donald Jr. (Pamela) Menominee, Heather Adams (Cory Sotka) Menominee, Jeffrey (Jenni) Gladstone, Kimberly (Gary) Rachels (her favorite) Menominee, and Eric (Melissa) Menominee. She had 20 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren all of which will miss her terribly.
Per Linda’s wishes no services will be held. Hansen-Onion-Martell is assisting the family.
The family wishes to thank the nurses of St. Luke’s MRICU for the wonderful care and compassion shown to Linda in her final days.
We will miss you everyday Mom.
