Linda R. Schambow

November 5, 1952 — December 17, 2021

Linda Schambow, age 69, passed away on December 17, 2021 at St. Mary's Hospital in Madison of Covid pneumonia. Linda was born on November 5, 1952, in Dodgeville, WI. She spent her childhood on a farm in Stitzer, WI and attended at Stitzer Grade School and then at Fennimore, WI for middle and high school from which she graduated in 1970.

She loved spending time with her family playing cards, going gambling and just laughing and having fun at the lakehouse. She was a dog lover and helped with a neighbor's dog whenever possible. She also loved sports, especially playing softball or basketball, and was an avid fan of UW-Women's basketball and the Brewers. She worked for many years as a secretary for the WI Department of Social Security Disabilities from where she retired in 2008.

Linda is survived by sisters Roberta (Bob) Stanley, Mary (Mike) Prem, and Betty (Ken) Zitka. She is also survived by brother-in-law Larry Wolenec and sister-in-law Pam Schambow, as well as 24 nieces and nephews, whom she loved.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Arthur and Grace Schambow, sisters Elsie Zoha, Jo Ann Wolenec, and Carol Franzen and brother Paul Schambow, as well as brother-in-law Milo Zoha, niece Tammy Walk, and nephew Jim Burns.

A celebration of life will be determined at some time in the future.
