Linda Mae (Teteak) Breitwisch, age 70, a Plymouth resident, died early Monday morning, September 28, 2015 at Terrace Place Assisted Living, Sheboygan.

She was born on February 23, 1945 in Manitowoc, daughter of Claudia (LaFleur) Kolpin and the late Carlton Teteak. Linda graduated from Two Rivers Washington High School with the class of 1963. She then attended business school in Milwaukee.

In June of 1968 she married Gary Breitwisch and the couple settled in Sheboygan, where she worked as assistant manager at Sheboygan Humane Society. They then moved to Madison where Linda was employed at the UW School of Veterinary Medicine. There she acquired her first of many horses. In 1985 the couple moved back to Sheboygan county and bought a house with land just outside of Plymouth. Linda established Spindrift Stables, featuring the breeding, boarding and sales of fine Appaloosa.

She was very good at the first two but never really mastered the selling part. Linda was a past member of the Plymouth Trail Riders and the Lakeshore Appaloosa Promoters. She enjoyed camping every year at Peninsula State Park in Door County and couldn’t drive past a garage sale sign. Linda also was employed at Acuity Insurance and retired in 2005 after more than 20 years.
