Linda (“Linnie”) June Greinke (Pesch), age 71, of Round Lake Beach, passed away Friday, October 28, 2016, at her residence. She was born June 4, 1945, in Chicago, to Jack and Olga (Glenane) Pesch.
Linda worked as a secretary for the majority of her life, having been blessed with incredible skills in the office place. She started her administrative career at a packing company and moved on to the transportation office at the Round Lake High School and then onto Briggs Manufacturing.
Linda dearly enjoyed attending concerts with her many nieces, baking, drawing and writing fun, witty poetry for her family and friends. Linda loved her family and enjoyed many great moments with them, always adding an extraordinary element to the mix that will be greatly missed. She raised many cockatiels over the past 25 years or so, tending to each and every one of them with great love and the best of care. Linda was also very passionate about her beloved dog, Nikki (“Nikki Noodle”) — his memory always put a smile on her face and a song in her heart. Linda was a member of The Lutheran Church of All Saints.
Linda is survived by her daughter, Pamela Sherman; three grandchildren, Mark, Jonathan and Linda; five great-grandchildren; her sister Lois (Frank) Haring; her uncle George Glenane and several cousins; many nieces and nephews; several great nieces and nephews; and her former husband and friend, John “Jack” Greinke.
She was preceded in death by her sister Jacqueline Berger (Pesch).
