Linda Louise Dimberg, affectionately known as Minnie, gracefully departed from this world on January 10, 2024. She was born on December 19, 1946, in Warsaw, Indiana, to Raymond E Dimberg and Marie K Dimberg. Linda was the beloved daughter of Raymond and Marie and the stepdaughter of Olive E. Dimberg. She was a caring sister to her brother, Larry E Elliott, who was married to Lois G Elliott.

Linda is survived by her nephew Brian Elliott (Michele),  her niece, Elizabeth Cavanaugh (Patrick) and her five great nieces and nephews Katelyn Elliott ,Lindsay Elliott Jack Elliott, Morgan Cavanaugh and Maggie Cavanaugh.

Linda graduated from Holy Cross Nursing School in South Bend, Indiana in 1972. Her pursuit of knowledge later led her to Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois, where she earned an MBA. Linda's professional journey was marked by 33 years as an ICU nurse at Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago, Illinois. Her unwavering commitment to helping those in need extended beyond the hospital walls as she transitioned into Information Systems.

In 2005, Linda relocated to Grand Rapids, Michigan, where she played a crucial role in the implementation of Metro Health Hospital's EPIC charting system. Her contributions to the healthcare field were invaluable, reflecting her passion for making a positive impact.
