Linda Jo Schmitt

July 16, 1948 - May 6, 2016

Linda Jo Schmitt was born in Salem, Oregon to John and Ardelle Meier.  To those who knew her she was the epitome of endurance, kindness, and love.  One only needed to meet her once to be forever touched by her unwavering smile and optimism.  She had a fierce determination to live fueled by a strong devotion to her faith.  Linda’s path in life included many things; a fashion model, an interior designer and architect, a master wood carver, a teacher of her arts, but most important to her was being a dedicated wife, a loving mother, and finally the happiest of all grandmothers.  She is survived by her husband Mike, son Shane, his wife Crystal and their son Dominic, as well as her daughter Andrea and fiancé Adam, and her beloved pets.  Linda is also survived by her siblings Dan Meier, Janelle Bugni, Nancy Stanley, and Sharon Zielinski.
