Obituary for Linda Jean (Ishman) Spieker

Linda (Ishman) Spieker of Cresco, IA passed away on Sunday, September 6, 2020 at the Evans Memorial Home at the age of 72.

Linda was born August 8, 1948 in Morrison, Iowa. She lived with her family on various farms in central Iowa until they finally settled on a farm near Granger, Minnesota.

She graduated from Harmony High School and after high school learned the craft of welding. She worked first at Heco in Harmony as a welder and then at Featherlite in Cresco. She was at Featherlite until she retired in 2013.

After retirement, she enjoyed going on several cruises to the East and West Caribbean and the Northeastern Atlantic coastline. She loved the sound of the ocean and visiting the various light houses in Maine and Canada.  She also enjoyed trips to northern Minnesota to visit her daughter.

After her stroke last year, she still enjoyed the rides back and forth to Lacrosse, Wisconsin where she and her sister, Donna would laugh and joke about the silliest things.  Linda had a great sense of humor and was a great joke teller. She was a hard worker, loyal friend and a wise counselor. She will be missed.
