Linda M. Bergstrom

Linda M. Bergstrom, 80, of Bloomer, died peacefully at home on Thursday, June 1, 2023, surrounded by family and under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice. She was called home to her Heavenly Father, secure in her faith and with gratitude for a lifetime of blessings here on earth.

Linda was born November 24, 1942, in Chippewa Falls to Henry and Alvina (King) Blank. She graduated from Chippewa Falls High School in 1961. In 1975, she met Gary Bergstrom in Grand Portage, MN and they married in 1978 in Dane County, WI, while she was living in Watertown. Shortly after they moved back to the Bloomer/Chippewa Falls area.

Over the years Linda worked various jobs in the different towns where she lived. In her youth, she served in the national V.I.S.T.A. service program, assisting with voter registration and as a community organizer in rural Kentucky. She also worked at Radisson Inn in Grand Portage, Bethesda Lutheran Home in Watertown, AmericInn in Chippewa Falls, and Hardee’s in Bloomer.

An artist at heart, Linda was gifted at painting, wood carving, spinning and knitting wool, and other intricate crafting.  She loved baking, gardening, playing cribbage, and was a passionate advocate for animals of all kinds.

Those blessed to know Linda best will miss her thoughtfulness, generosity, and razor-sharp wit.

Linda’s standard advice for coping with difficult times was always to “Treat yourself really well. Do something that’s just for fun. Bake yourself something chocolate.”

Linda is survived by her husband, Gary; daughter, Sarah (Kevin Hite) Bergstrom of Bloomer; sisters, Connie Blank of Tilden, Mary (Don) Frazer of Bloomer, and Emogene Marquardt of Bloomer.

She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Clara Blank; brother, Delmar Blank; and brother-in-law, Richard Marquardt.

A memorial service will be held at 6:30 p.m., on Friday, June 9, 2023 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 1504 Vine St., Bloomer with Rev. Robert Otto officiating. A private interment will be held at Eagleton Cemetery at a later date.
