Linda Lee Okrina

Linda Lee Okrina was born on January 6, 1955, in Marshall, to Floyd and Ella (Wendschuh) Okrina and graduated from Minneota High School in 1973. Following graduation, she attended Mankato State University and graduated in 1977 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Consumer Science. She spent many years working at various places which included: Country Kitchen, State Farm Insurance, North Star Insurance, Abra Auto Body, Fabrics Plus, Shopko and the Minneota Manor. Over the years, she was very active in church activities such as the church council, altar guild, choir, and Thrivent. She spent much of her free time creating beautiful sewing projects such as quilts, table runners, seasonal craft projects for family members and friends. Linda loved cooking and baking almost anything. Her treats were welcomed by everyone! She was also an avid fan of all local High School sports and rarely missed an opportunity to attend a game. She enjoyed watching Southwest State University sports, and loved following the Minnesota Twins and Vikings. Linda was always willing to help anyone at any time. Linda died on Monday, September 21, 2015, at the Prairie Home Hospice House in Marshall, after fighting a long, determined battle with cancer which began in 2001. She is survived by her sister Bonnie Van Putten of Wabasha, MN, and brother-in-law Tom Van Putten of Naples, FL, sister and brother-in-law Linette and Bob Nelson of Minneota, and her twin brother and sister-in-law Lynn and Barb Okrina, also of Minneota. She is also survived by her nieces Michelle Meyer (and David) of Wabasha, MN, Kristen (and Corey) Fett of Bloomington, and nephews Jason Van Putten of Wabasha, MN, Michael Nelson of St. Louis Park, MN, and Quyen (and Melinda) Chau of Shakopee. She is also survived by two great-nieces and five great-nephews. Linda loved her family and adored all of her nieces and nephews. Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society, the Prairie Home Hospice House, or Hope Lutheran Church of Minneota.

To Lynn and all of Linda's family. Though it has been years since I've seen Linda, I will never forget the many wonderful memories made by our "group" of friends! May you all find peace in your memories and the knowledge that Linda is now free of the cancer and enjoying eternal life with our Maker in Heaven.

My condolences to the entire Okrina family. Our parents were good friends and neighbors for years. Losing a family member is always difficult, and your family was always there of us. You love and friendships mean a lot to all of us.
