Linda Tubbs, 67, Green Bay, passed away peacefully in her home from the incurable condition of having a heart way too big for her body. Mother to Camilla Tubbs (Pablo Sandoval) and Kerry Nicklaus (Dave Nicklaus), Linda also served as stage mom to countless young dancers, singers and actors throughout the Green Bay area, crafting hundreds of costumes, making stage dreams come true.
Born in Black Creek to Mildred and Dennis Stingle, Linda was always meant for the role of mom. Being in her presence meant feeling totally, selfishly and unconditionally loved which is a tribute to her parents and the childhood that she shared sisters Jean and Melody and brothers Bill and Russell. Linda made sure to pass along those same values to her children, reminding them every day that your family is the most important thing that you have in this world.
In 1975, she married her high school sweetheart, John, and created a beautiful life in Ashwaubenon. And while they ultimately went their separate ways, Linda never stopped believing in love and the importance of forgiveness. And she continued to love his sisters Jane, Janet and Janice as if they were her own.
While being a mom was always her main career, she touched the lives of so many while working a day job. First as a clerk at Osco Drug Store, where her family waited eagerly outside every night to take her home. Then at Good Humor Breyers, where, in addition to reading and responding to countless customer letters, she organized the annual holiday gatherings and company picnics, and curated an office newsletter. And then later at Humana from where she ultimately retired.
In retirement, she fully embraced the role of proud grandma to Noah, Owen, and three boisterous furballs named Zoey, Zeus and Patsy.
In addition to her daughters and grandchildren, Linda is survived by her mother, Mildred Stingle; one sister, Jean (Tom) Banker; two brothers: Bill and Russell (Patti) Stingle.
She was preceded in death by her father, Dennis; and one sister, Melody Stephani.
Visitation will take place at Muehl-Boettcher Funeral Home on Monday, October 3, 2022, from 4:00 p.m. until the time of service at 6:00 p.m., Deacon Rich Matuszak officiating. Burial will take place at St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery in Black Creek.
In lieu of flowers, her family asks that you take a moment today to tell the people in your lives that you love them.
Mom, we love you so much, and we will miss you every day.
