Linda Melitta Richter, age 57, of Glenbeulah, passed away on March 7, 2016 after her courageous battle with cancer and leukemia.

She was born in Sheboygan on May 15, 1958, daughter of the late Harold and Doris (Mallmann) Hummitzsch.

Linda attended Grant Elementary, Urban Jr. High, and graduated from Sheboygan North in 1976. She later went to LTI in Cleveland where she studied nursing for two years. During that time she worked at various nursing homes.

In 1980, she married Richard “Ricky” Richter from Sheboygan Falls. The couple moved to Glenbeulah two years after their marriage. Ricky preceded her in death in 1998.

Linda worked for many years at Lakeshore Display until her retirement. She later worked at Home Instead Senior Care, taking care of elderly and disabled clients. During her marriage she was involved in her husband’s business R & R Enterprises.

She was an active person in the village of Glenbeulah, and would often be seen walking one of many rescue dogs she adopted. Her latest was taking care of her feral cats that she fed daily.

She especially liked going to her brother and sister-in-law’s house and terrorizing their pets, but she really loved them.

Linda is survived by her brother: Keith (Dixie) Hummitzsch; and two aunts: Shirly and Julie Mallmann. She is also survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
