Offer Condolence for the family of Linda LacknerPrint This Obituary & Condolences
I am saddened by the death of my dear cousin Linda Lackner. We first met upon our arrival to America. Linda’s grandparents sponsored my family which consisted of my mother Tilly, father Joe and sister Trudy. We were fortunate to stay with my aunt and uncle for about 4 months. Linda, her parents Marge and Bob and sister Karen lived upstairs. We had a wonderful relationship with the whole family and learned a lot about the American life and learned to perfect our English while living there. They all were such wonderful people, and Linda and Karen were a big help in getting us accustomed to America and our life in Cleveland. LInda was a very gentle and kind person even as a child and as the years went on she became even more helpful to people around her. Linda rest in peace in the midst of your parents and Grandparents, you are now without pain and enjoying life in heaven with the Lord and your entire family. So until we meet again, please reserve us a place in heaven. May you rest in peace dear cousin and friend, you will be missed. Hilde Lackner Kobetitsch

My time with Linda was always full of fun and laughs. She had a gentle soul and made me feel loved. I wish I could be there to give a hug or hold a hand……Karen, I am sitting there next to you with my arm around your shoulders. Love you all. Terry

So sorry to learn of Linda’s death. I have many fond memories of fun on Blackfoot. I wish I could come and share, but I am out of town.
