Linda Schraufnagel, age 64, of Combined Locks, passed away at her home on Thursday, June 12, 2014. She was born in Milwaukee on November 9, 1949, the daughter of Earl and Margaret (Kiewitt) Hinz. On September 5, 1970 she married George Schraufnagel.
Linda devoted her life to the Catholic education system by teaching young people for over 43 years. The last 28 years were spent at St. Francis Xavier High School teaching Religion and Spanish. Linda's love of learning expanded to herself as she became an expert in the educational software programs used at the school. Over the years at Xavier, she also shared her time and talent with the JV cheerleaders, flag program, dance and drill team, and the National Honor Society. Linda continued to teach Spanish until February 2014. She was a member of St. Paul Parish in Combined Locks.
Linda is survived by her husband, Deacon George Schraufnagel of Combined Locks; mother, Margaret Hinz; daughters: Stacy (William) Newman and Regina (Charles) Porter; grandchildren: Jack and Sarah Newman and Miranda and Alena Porter; her sister, Janet and brother-in-law, Reverend Robert Hinz.
Linda was preceded in death by her father, Earl Hinz and her grandchildren, Benjamin and Anna Porter.
The funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, June 16, 2014, at St. Paul Parish, 410 Wallace Street, Combined Locks, with Fr. Andrew Kysely officiating. Visitation will be at the church from 9:00 a.m. Monday until the time of the Mass. To sign the guestbook, please visit www.verkuilenfh.com. In lieu of flowers, all memorials will be donated to Catholic education in the Green Bay Diocese.
The family would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the community of Xavier, who has provided so much joy to Linda over the years. Though we can no longer hear her lessons with our ears, we will always hear them in our minds and hearts.
