Born Nov. 13, 1931, to the late Marvel Kennard and Fred (Irene) Kennard, she was a loving and giving wife, mother and grandmother that placed her family, friends and the Packers before herself. Talented in verse, she was an artist, avid hiker and gardener, loved to travel and fish and caught some whoppers and told a few too. A cancer survivor, she was generous and always said dynamite comes in small packages and if you knew her, you would agree.
She is survived by seven children, Melinda Obey (Karter Gallian), Guy (Cynthia) Lindstrom, Tamara Jo Charron (Adam Dubay), Bryan (Bonnie) Lindstrom and Traci (Todd) Lindstrom, Steve Charron and Meri Lindstrom; fiancé, Ronald Fritsch and his children, David (Debbie) Fritsch, Sandy (Dan) Lundt and Rhonda (Joel) Rudicil, and their grandchildren and great-grandchildren; 15 grandchildren; 21 great-grandchildren; 12 great-great-grandchildren; two siblings, Janith Christensen and Fred "Biff" Kennard Jr. and many nieces; nephews; other relatives and friends.
Including her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Victor Russell Lindstrom; two sisters, Judy Sauve and Peggy Kennard; two granddaughters, Rachel Scherer, and Lisa Lindstrom; two grandsons, Dylan Jacquet and Sebastian Scherer; a son-in-law, Robert Obey and a step-daughter, Lori Daniels.
A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday, Nov. 16 at Lakewood Town Hall from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., with a Memorial Service at 2 p.m. Gruetzmacher Funeral Home of Suring is assisting the family with arrangements. Those attending are asked to wear Packer attire. Donations can be made in her memory to a cancer organization of ones choice.
