Barbara Ann Lindner, 66, Janesville
JANESVILLE — Barbara Ann (Korth) Lindner, 66, was called to be with her Savior in heaven on Wednesday, Dec. 12, 2018, at her home in Janesville.
Barb was born on Sept. 25, 1952, to Gilbert and Dorothy (Foch) Korth and raised in Juneau. She was a baptized child of God and the only daughter in the middle of five brothers. Barb graduated from Lakeside Lutheran High School and Milwaukee County General Hospital School of Nursing. She worked for many years as a nurse at various hospitals and nursing homes, caring for the needs of others. She married her high school sweetheart, Mark Lindner, on April 6, 1974. The Lord blessed them with four children.
During Pastor Lindner’s ministry, Barb served behind the scenes at their churches in Glenham, South Dakota; Mobridge, South Dakota; Beaver Dam; and Janesville. She raised their children in the Christian faith and enjoyed spending countless hours sitting on bleachers. Barb enjoyed sewing from childhood 4-H, traveling around the country with her beloved husband, and going on outings with her friends, siblings and grandchildren.
Barb now enjoys the glory of heaven with family and friends who have fallen asleep in their Savior. She was preceded in death by her husband Mark Lindner; parents Gilbert and Dorothy Korth; in-laws Elroy and Eugenia Lindner; and niece, Sarah Migacz.
Barb is survived by her children Kathryn (Rev. Steven) Neyhart, Reedsburg, Rev. Daniel (Heidi) Lindner, Minneapolis, Abigail (Jeremy) Drallos, Milwaukee, and David (Sherry), Seattle; grandchildren Madelyn, Aaron, Emma and Bennett Neyhart, and Lily Drallos; five brothers, Richard (Karen) Korth, Arlington, Jeffrey (Sherry) Korth, Watertown, Rev. Steven Korth, Bay City, Michigan, Michael (Beth) Korth, Verona, Andrew Korth, Green Bay; in-laws John and Barbara Migacz, Franklin; and many other family members and friends.
We take comfort in the words that our Lord God gives us in 1 Peter 1:3-4 “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade.”
Funeral services will be held at St. Matthew’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, 709 Milton Ave., Janesville on Wednesday, Dec. 19, beginning at 11 a.m. Visitation will be held at the church on Tuesday, Dec. 18, from 5-7 p.m. and again on Wednesday from 10 a.m. until the time of service.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorials be directed to WELS Home & World Missions and Luther Preparatory School.
The Lindner family is being assisted by Henke-Clarson Funeral Home.
