Linda Rust passed July 21, 2012, in the arms of her loved ones. Linda’s caring and generous spirit leaves an impressionable mark on all who love her. As a woman of tremendous strength and courage, her passion for life was endless. Her love for family and friends was apparent to all who know her, shown in actions every day of her life.
Frank and Darlene Johnson welcomed Linda into the world Nov. 5, 1959. Her younger brother, David Johnson, and younger sister, Susan Northey, joined her in their Norton Park home. She graduated from Morgan Park High School in 1978. From then on she is forever known as “Likable Linda.”
Linda worked many years as a supporter in the health-care industry. She made an everlasting impact on those she encountered throughout her years in health care. Most recently she worked for Cardon Outreach, and like everything else in Linda’s life, she shared her remarkable passion for helping others.
As a daughter she filled a family, as a sister she shared laughs, as a wife she embraced true love, as a mother she cherished her children, as an aunt she adored all 37 of them, as a friend she supported and treasured each and every moment.
Linda has left our world to meet with her loved ones left long ago, Grandma Myrt and Grandpa Frenchy, Grandma and Grandpa Johnson, and Dorothy and John Rust.
Linda’s life will continue to be celebrated by her family, husband Phil, daughter Laura and son Mikey.
Linda’s family would like to thank the Cancer Center of America in Zion, Ill., Essentia, Ecumen Lakeshore and Solvay House for their exceptional care.
The family welcomes family and friends Tuesday, July 24, from 4-7 P.M. at The Cremation Society of Minnesota, 4100 Grand Ave. Our celebration of life service will be held at Asbury United Methodist Church, 6822 Grand Ave., on Wednesday, July 25. Visitation will occur one hour prior to the 4 p.m. service. Let us celebrate Linda’s life by wearing bright, vibrant colors.
