Linda Castle

LINDA L. CASTLE, age 67 of Greenwood, WI, passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2022 while resting at home surrounded by her loving family.  Linda fought hard after recently being diagnosed with Stage 3 Pancreatic Cancer in August 2021.  Linda’s celebration of life will be held at Parkway Pines on Highway 73, in Greenwood Wisconsin, on Saturday May 14th, 2022, from noon until 4 pm.  

Born in Boston, Massachusetts May 3, 1954 to Joseph Siggens and Mary Siggens, Linda was the second born and moved with her family in 1964 to Norwich CT, where she grew up with her four siblings.  Linda graduated from Norwich Free Academy in 1972 and obtained an associate degree from Mohegan Community College in 1976.  While attending college and working to fund her education at a local grocery store, Linda met her best friend, Carol.  Linda and Carol had many laughs, amazing moments, and created heartfelt memories to last a lifetime.  Linda’s passion for bartending brought her to a Local Bar near the Naval Base where she worked alongside and ultimately fell in love with her handsome bartending co-worker Kurt, who was enlisted in the US Navy.  After a year and a half long engagement, Linda and Kurt were married on December 27, 1980, in a small Chapel by the Naval Base in Groton, CT.

Two years later, Linda and Kurt, who recently re-enlisted, moved to Bangor-Poulsbo, WA.  Linda stayed busy working as a paralegal on the Naval Base and welcomed her first-born daughter (Karlie) in August 1982, followed by her first son (Douglas) in February 1985.  In March of 1988, Linda and family moved to Bemidji, MN (Kurt’s hometown) after Kurt joined the Naval Reserves.  While in Bemidji, Linda helped at the Castle Family’s Golf Course (Castle Highlands) and worked as a dispatcher for the Beltrami County Sheriff’s Office.  In 1991, Linda moved to Lake Nebagamon, WI after Kurt accepted an electrician position at the Lakehead Pipeline/Enbridge Energy station in Superior, WI.  It was here that Linda owned and operated her own greenhouse.  Subsequently, in May of 1992, Linda welcomed her youngest son (Matthew) into the world.  In 1993, Linda and family made their final move to Greenwood, WI where they built their forever home.  It was here that Linda worked several years as an executive secretary at Dairy Concepts and, after having some health complications, she began her screen-printing business (Bullish Wear).  For many years, Linda enjoyed working hard for her family, customers, and the community by creating, personalizing, and crafting customized clothing and accessories. Unfortunately, in 2015, Linda suffered a stroke that changed her life and ultimately forced her to retire. 

Linda enjoyed being with her family most; It didn’t matter if she was fishing, hunting, traveling, working in the woods, shooting in archery league, golfing, supporting her children with their activities, or just being in the company of her family.  Later in life, Linda absolutely adored getting visits from her eight grandchildren and could not wait for her children to come home for the holidays.  The only thing that came close to her love for her family was how much she loved mowing the lawn; a self-proclaimed job that everyone knew to not interfere with.  Linda was always willing to get her hands dirty and take on new adventures; be it gardening, landscaping, clearing trees, maple syrup farming, raising farm animals, etc. Linda, along with her husband and family, grew the Greenwood property to what it has become today: something to take pride in and truly cherish for generations to come. 

Linda was known for her meticulous work ethic, tenacity, unconditional love, ability to listen with an open mind, providing unbiased advice, and for being the most compassionate person you would ever hope to meet.  She was a spit-fighter and had the best witty/sarcastic/funny remarks that could turn anybody’s frown into a smile.  Even after her terminal diagnosis, Linda was a pleasure to be around; hospital staff adored working with Linda and often coined her as their “favorite.”  Linda was a devoted wife, supportive mother, caring sister, accomplished daughter, and a loving grandmother.  

Linda will be dearly missed by her children: Karlie (Roger) Samuels of New Richmond, WI; Douglas (Amber) Castle of Farmington, MN; Matthew (Bethany) Castle of Greenwood, WI; her 8 grandchildren; her sister: Donna (Barry) Green of Uncasville, CT; her brother: Joseph Siggens of Preston, CT; her mother-in-law: Dorothy Jean Castle of Bemidji, MN; her best friend Carol (Ron) Ewen of Port Charlotte, FL; and many more relatives and friends.     

She is preceded in death by her husband, mother, father, sister Mary, and sister Karen.
