Mary Jo Lindeberg Obituary
Lindeberg, Mary Jo

Mary Jo Lindeberg, age 84, died in Ithaca NY on February 12. Born August 3, 1932 in Osceola, WI, to Clara and Iver Hagen, she is survived by her children JD and Magdalen Lindeberg, grandsons Logan Lindeberg, Ronan Perry, and Julian Perry, and brothers Karl Hagen and Paul Hagen.

In 1954 Mary Jo earned a BA in Social Studies at St. Olaf College where she met George Lindeberg, her husband of 56 years. After time spent in Princeton NJ for George's graduate studies, Mary Jo and George returned to the banks of the St. Croix to live and raise a family in Hudson WI. She moved to Ithaca NY in 2015.

Mary Jo engaged in many volunteer pursuits associated with Luther Memorial Church in River Falls WI and children's theater and other activities at the Phipps Center for the Arts in Hudson. She also volunteered as a children's grief group facilitator with Lakeview Hospice in Stillwater MN, an activity which profoundly informed her own end of life planning. Mary Jo enthusiastically joined the natural foods movement in the early 1970s. Her recipes are cherished by friends and family, and her Norwegian crackers beloved by many.

Her family would like to thank Mary Jo's doctor, Lucia Jander, and the staff at Brookdale and Oak Hill Manor for their excellent care during these last two years. A memorial for Mary Jo will be held in Wisconsin in summer 2017. More information will be forthcoming as plans are finalized. Bangs Funeral Home is assisting the family.
