Linda Niederkohr

After a long struggle with renal failure, Linda K. Niederkohr, 77, of Carey, passed away peacefully at 12:10 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 15, 2020, at her residence surrounded by her family.
Born May 6, 1943, in Findlay, she was the daughter of Ira Harry and Edith P. (Tanner) Wickiser. She married E. Wade Niederkohr on June 30, 1962, at the Basilica of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey. Wade survives in Carey.
Linda is also survived by three children, Peter John (Gaynell Troiano) Niederkohr, Pamela Jayne (Todd) Stoll and Patricia Jo Niederkohr, all of Carey; three grandchildren, Tanner Wade, Trennen Eric and Tylinn Jayne Stoll; and two brothers, David Ira Wickiser of Indianapolis, Ind., and Reid John Wickiser of Bowling Green.
She was a 1961 graduate of Carey High School and spent her entire career working as a bookkeeper and accounting specialist. She started her career at People’s Bank/Toledo Trust in Carey for 13 years and continued in banking at Ohio Bank in Findlay. She moved on to work for 12 years at REB Manufacturing in Carey and retired from Automotive Electronic Services in Findlay after 10 years of service. Her keen sense of number crunching landed her many volunteer treasurer positions, Carey Festival for 10 years and Heart of Ohio Tole (HOOT) for 17 of her 36 year membership, just to name a couple. She also served as an auditor for Carey Poverello for many years.
Linda was a very talented artistic painter and was a member of Brushes and Pallets, as well as HOOT. She was a charter member of the Carey EMS. She was also a member of the Carey Mother’s League and the Thursday Night Gab Club. She loved all animals, especially horses. She enjoyed flower gardening with a zest for roses.
Linda was a very busy lady, but always took time to enjoy her family, especially watching her grandchildren participate in extracurricular activities. She didn’t just love her kids and grandkids, but loved every kid that walked through her door and thought of them as her own.
Friends will be received Tuesday, Nov. 17, from noon-3 p.m. at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey. Attendance will be restricted at the visitation based on space to accommodate social distancing requirements. Face coverings must be worn while attending visitation.
A private family service will be held at a later date at the funeral home, with Chaplain Steve Sturgeon officiating. Burial will be in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Carey.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Our Lady of Consolation Trojan Boosters and sent to Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home, 225 W. Findlay Street, Carey, OH 43316.
