Linda Jo Foltz
November 27, 1946 – January 21, 2021
After a quiet, private and very courageous battle with breast cancer for over 28 years, Linda Foltz passed away peacefully at age 74 on January 21st, 2021.
Linda was born on November 27th, 1946, to Norbert and Elma in Duluth, MN. She grew up on the Vaux Road in Pike Lake, MN where her family led a simple life and made cherished memories. In 1964, she graduated and attended the University of Minnesota-Duluth and moved from the Duluth area to the Twin Cities to work for the Minnesota Department of Revenue where she held various roles until she retired at age 55. During her time at Revenue, Linda created lifelong friendships and met Jim, whom she married in November of 1976, joining the large and very loving Foltz family. Linda and Jim had two children, Marni and Ryan, and three grandchildren; Natalia, Nico and Jack. Linda spent most of her retirement taking extra special care of all three of her grandchildren, spending time at the cabin and crafting with her dear friends in the Night Owls Guild.
Linda will always be remembered for her kindness, patience, generosity and her ability to subtly share her wisdom with all of us. Her selflessness was always evident. She will be deeply missed by her children Marni (Jose) and Ryan, her precious grandchildren Natalia, Nico and Jack, sister Claudia, nieces Kjirsten (Tony), Erica (Steve), great nieces and nephew, many extended family members and the countless friends she made over the years.
