It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Linda Betty Springer, age 65, of Stratford. Linda passed away peacefully with family by her side at Victoria Hospital, London on January 12, 2020. Born in Kitchener, October 14, 1954, daughter of the late Earl and Idula (Brodrecht) Biesel.
Beloved wife for 45 years of Klaus-Peter. Loving mother of Amy Springer (Mike), Erica Baier (Adam). Special Nana of Emma and Cole.

Predeceased by brothers-in-law Earl Roth, Dieter Grapp, Graham Phillips and mother-in-law Kathe Grapp.
Linda’s way of making everyone feel like the most important person in the world was one of her special qualities. Her genuine and heartfelt laugh always brought excitement to any room. She loved with her whole heart and was kind to everyone she met. An example of Linda’s kindness and faith could be found in the fact that she was a chosen Godmother to many. Linda and Klaus brought their example of true love and marriage commitment to everyone around them and were a huge part of the marriage encounter family. Linda worked in the office at Masterfeeds and later as Reception Coordinator with the W.G. Young Funeral Home. She was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Past President of the Woman of Faith. She volunteered at the Stratford General Hospital in the Gift Shop and Coffee Shop for many years. She will be missed by many near and far.
