Cheryle Jean (Noecker) Linnane, beloved wife and mother, passed away suddenly in her Bluffton home May 17, 2015. A Celebration of Life is being planned for a later date.

She was born in Decorah to Clifford and Eunice (Vail) Noecker July17, 1945. She attended Decorah schools and then married Leo Patrick Linnane of Bluffton, June 24, 1961.

In 1987, they moved to Preston, Minn., where they farmed and she worked at the Preston Care Center as a CNA/TMA for almost 30 years. In 1988, they moved back to Decorah and the family farm in Bluffton. She loved and enjoyed her children, grandchildren, gardening, reading and working jigsaw puzzles. She was proud of her Norwegian and Sioux heritage and attended the annual Nordic Fest held in Decorah.

She is survived by her husband, Leo, of 54 years; her three daughters: Tammet Linnane Jerrow of Colorado Springs, Colo.; Valarie Linnane Lund, of Canton, Minn.; and Paula (Tony) Severson, of Preston, Minn.; grandchildren: Angel (Josh) Cross, Tim (Sharla) Jerrow, Philip Jerrow, Kyle Linnane, Michaela Lund, Noah Lund, Adam Severson, Megan Severson, Jordan Quandahl; and five great-grandchildren; one sister, Elaine (Gaylon) Bolson of Decorah; many nieces and nephews; and beloved sisters- and brothers-in-law.

She will truly be missed by many. She will remain close to our hearts.
