Linda Kay Popp, age 70 of Genesee Township, passed away suddenly on Saturday, October 5, 2019. Linda was born on March 16, 1949 in Milwaukee to Harold and Ione (Krumbiegel) White. She married the love of her life, Charles A. Popp, on December 20, 1969 in West Allis at Mt. Hope Lutheran Church.
Linda loved the Lord, she loved all His creation and she loved the people He put in it. She loved her family deeply and poured her whole heart into caring for them. She adored her husband and raised her children with kindness, patience and compassion, supporting them in every way. Through all her health issues, Linda’s positive outlook and generous nature never faltered. She was a kind woman and was loved by all who knew her. She enjoyed being active in her church community and would help anyone in need. Linda loved nature and would be outdoors every chance she got. Camping was her absolute favorite thing to do with her family. Linda’s grandchildren were a special light in her life. Throughout her struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, they warmed her heart and always made her smile.
Linda is survived by her husband of almost 50 years, Charles of Genesee; her children, Stephanie (Mike) Jobke of Eagle and Karsten (Jen Crangle) Popp of Franklin; her beautiful grandchildren, Chase, Amelia, Jayme, Jordan and Carter; her siblings, Sally (Robert) Patterson and Craig (Sue) White; her brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, Robert (Linda) Popp, Joanne Wanderer and Carlyn Kraemer; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.
