Jean Lindstrom | News, Sports, Jobs




MARINETTE, Wis. — Jean Lindstrom, 81, of Marinette, Wis., passed away quietly on May 23, 2020. 

Born to Anton and Helen (Pahuski) Bilski, on March 6, 1939, she grew up in Norway, Mich., and graduated from Kingsford High School in 1957.

After graduating, Jeanne, as everyone called her, worked briefly at Cutler-Hammer in Milwaukee, and then moved back home to work in the office at Colonial Broach until she was married to Charles (Chuck) Lindstrom on May 14, 1960. Jeanne and Chuck had just celebrated their 60th anniversary this year.

Together, they shared life, children and work.  They spent their early years in Milwaukee, and then settled in Marinette, where Jeanne supported her husband as he started C & R Tool Corp., doing the office work for the business for many years.

They had four children, which had been Jeanne’s childhood hope… to have two girls and two boys… and she devoted her life to being the best wife and mother she could be.

She took great pride in having a clean house and making wonderful meals for her family every day, always trying new recipes from her many cookbooks.

In winter, she was outside with her kids, snowmobiling, ice skating, cross-country skiing… and in summer they would pick berries to make jam, weed the garden together and enjoy eating the things they grew.  Summer weekends, she was often found packing and unpacking for everyone as they headed to the family cottage on Carney Lake.

 A very private, and no-nonsense woman, she enjoyed the simple things in life; walks in the woods, watching the deer and birds, and reading.

Jeanne instilled in her children her great love for animals, with many beloved dogs and cats over the years, and caring for injured birds and orphaned fawns (she raised two orphaned fawns until they were old enough to live on their own).

 As an empty-nester, Jeanne loved to travel, and saw the world with her husband including taking cruises, and trips to Mexico, Italy, Greece, Sweden, Norway and all over the United States, including Hawaii.  She was even able to take a trip-of-a-lifetime to Poland with her sister Sandie. 

After all that traveling, she was happy to start avoiding the snow and cold winters by spending several winter seasons at their house in Florida.

She is survived by her husband, Charles Lindstrom and her children, Terri (Ross) Rhode of Green Bay, Wis., Dr. Paul (Amy) Lindstrom of Niagara, Wis., Dave Lindstrom of Marinette, Wis. and Patti (Andrew) Drescher of Riner, Va.  She enjoyed the special blessing of her grandchildren, Hattie (Matt) Stuessy, Emma JoEllen Lindstrom (Rob Duncan) and Charlie Drescher. In her final years, she was great-grandma to Charlotte, Donna and Maggie.

Additionally, she is survived by her dear sister, Sandra (Tom) DeBakker of Vulcan.

She will also be very sadly missed by her beloved dog, Bree.

She was preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Sam and Larry Bilski. 

The immediate family will celebrate her life with a private memorial.

Hansen-Onion-Martell Funeral Home of Marinette, Wis. is assisting the family.

52nd COVID death marked in county | News, Sports, Jobs




LISBON — Columbiana County recorded its 52nd coronavirus-related death over the weekend.

Laura Fauss from the county health department reported Monday an 87-year-old man who tested positive for the COVID-19 virus has died, He was living in a long-term health care facility at the time of his death and had underlying health conditions.

Of the 52 deaths, 27 have been residents of long-term health care facilities and nine were inmates at the federal prison in Elkton. Following is a breakdown of the deaths by age group:







Nearly everyone had underlying health conditions that put them at risk of contracting the virus, including all nine inmates at Elkton. In fact, three of the five deaths of people in their 50s were inmates, as was the lone person in the 40s age group.

Meanwhile, the number of people in the county with confirmed cases of COVID-19 continues to increase as more testing kits arrive. The number of confirmed cases jumped from 478 on Sunday to 609 on Monday and 660 Tuesday, according to the health department.

Of the 660 people who have tested positive, 130 were hospitalized, an increase of only one over the weekend. These are running totals and not being adjusted when someone dies or as the hospitalized recover and are released.

The health department says nearly half of the positive tests — 310 — were inmates at Elkton, where the federal Bureau of Prisons has been ordered by a federal judge to increase testing so at-risk inmates can be transferred elsewhere or released to house arrest.

Approximately 71 residents to date at long-term health care facilities have tested positive. This means nursing homes/care facilities and the prison account for 58 percent of positive cases in the county and 69 percent of all deaths.

In other news, the county health board held a special meeting Tuesday meeting to approve an agreement allowing Treharne’s Training Center in Middleton Township to resume operations, but in compliance with “Responsible RestartOhio” protocols established by the state health department.

The county health department received a temporary restraining order through county Common Pleas Court barring Treharne’s from continuing to hold equestrian events at its indoor arena off Fredericktown-Clarkson Road.

Treharne was holding barrel racing and other events that were reportedly drawing crowds of up to 300 people in violation of state emergency measures enacted to prevent the spread of the virus by limiting public crowds to less than 10. The owners said these measures were causing them financial harm and jeopardizing their ability to feed and care for the horses in their care.

The temporary restraining order expired Tuesday, and according to the resolution, Treharne’s must enforce the social distancing requirements by limiting the number of spectators until the state health director terminates the social distancing requirement.
