Linn A. White

February 22, 1952 — October 31, 2023

Green Bay

Linn A. White, 71, of Green Bay and Woodruff, died Tuesday, October 31, 2023, at a local care

facility following complications of ALS. She was born on February 22, 1952, in Milwaukee, to

the late Alan and Patricia (Dybalski) Engler. Linn was a graduate of Assumption High School in

Wisconsin Rapids. She continued her education at UW Stevens Points, eventually receiving her

master’s from Marion University. Linn worked at Arbor Vitae-Woodruff Grade School for many

years as a librarian, computer teacher and later a middle school social studies teacher.

 

She loved her house on Crescent Lake and would speak of it often. She taught religion at Our

Lady Queen of the Universe Catholic Church in Woodruff and was on the board responsible for

building the Lakeland Ice Arena. She also spent a lot of time with a close group of friends, first

as a walking group and later as quilters. She was a wonderful seamstress and could make almost

any clothing from scratch. ALS took away many of these hobbies, but it didn’t take away her

spirit. She worked with the MDA to raise funds and awareness for ALS and other muscle

diseases. She was also passionate about human rights and wrote to many politicians about her

concerns. In her later years at Autumn’s Promise, she enjoyed reading, visiting with friends,

watching the Packers, and spending time with her granddaughters. 

 

Linn loved education and was named the Lakeland Rotary Club’s Educator of the year in 1995.

She genuinely enjoyed being around young people. Everywhere she went she was able to

connect with people and everyone who knew her came away a better human being. She was also

a lifelong lover of traveling. As a child Linn would take long summer vacations with her family

all over the country and she continued this tradition with her daughter and friends.

 

Linn is survived by her daughter, Samantha (Bryan) Olson, Green Bay; three grandchildren,

Annabelle, Alexandra and Charlotte; her brother Donald (Sandi) Engler, Las Vegas; her former

husband, William White, Arbor Vitae; nephew, Christopher (Alissa) Engler; niece, Stefanie (Joe)

Brock; great nieces and nephews.

Thursday, November 16. A second visitation will be held on Saturday, November 18, at Holy
