    Sandy, I'm sorry for the loss of your Aunt.  It sounds like she had a very fulfilling life and accomplished much.  Too young, very sad.

    I won't be able to watch the Gators, see an orange & blue sunset or take a stroll through Streeterville without imagining Linnea's laugh. My deepest condolences to her loved ones. I was fortunate to know her. Godspeed, friend.

    I am truly numb with grief. Linnea was a dear nursing colleague and University of Florida College of Nursing friend . I treasured seeing her at our meeting and Gator functions or talking on the phone. She was always asking about our mission trips or travel adventures and we shared so many common journeys in life. This last year was so hard with her health challenges, but with tenacity and grit, she was past it all and ready for better days. We were going n a zoom call together 2 weeks before she suddenly passed away and she planned to visit me in northern Michigan this summer. So very sorry for her Chicago family & friends as she loved you so dearly. She had so many loving stories about you. She touched everyone blessed to know her and I will miss her laugh, heart and friendship so very much. I know she is at peace in the arms of our loving Lord, but this world needed Linnea and she will be deeply missed. Prayers for all of her family & May light perpetual shine on Linnea's glowing spirit!

    Linnea was my long-time friend.  I first met her when she was student at the College of Nursing, at UF.  Later we became colleagues and then continued connections over the years as well as a wonderful visit to see her in her beloved Chicago.  I think the obituary captured her personality well; she was generous, friendly, outgoing and knew how to offer her opinions.  She was a friend to many here in Gainesville and to me.  She will be missed by many, by me.  Sending comfort and care to her family; I always enjoyed the many pictures of Linnea with her many family groups.  I know you will struggle to have life without her.  Thinking of you all.

    I work at the building that Linnea lived in.

    She was a wonderful lady and I will miss her.

    I hope that she finds the peace that she deserves.
