Obituary for Linda E. Schachtrup

Linda Elaine Schachtrup of Peoria Heights passed away at 8:25 p.m. Thursday,  October 20, 2016 at the Richard L. Owens Hospice Home surrounded by her family.
She was born April 26, 1949 in Rock Island, Illinois to Roy and Barbara (Brown) Waymack.

Linda was preceded in death by her parents, sister, brother-in-law, and infant son Matthew.
Surviving are her husband of 41 years F. Michael Schachtrup, daughter Laura Schachtrup (Allen) Cullinan of Peoria and son Major F. Michael Schachtrup Jr. U.S. Army, (Ret).
Linda received an Associate's degree from Bradley University and was a dental assistant before becoming a full time mother, a role she cherished and excelled at more than anything else.
Linda was a compassionate and generous woman.  She was a long-time supporter of Easter Seals and St. Thomas Catholic Church.  She worked behind the scenes providing relief to those whose needs were most basic and often forgotten. 
Linda had a keen eye and a great attention to detail.  She was known for her magnificent floral gardens and warm, beautiful home.  She will be remembered for her passion for family and generosity towards friends.
The family invites all friends to attend a visitation from 7-9 p.m. Sunday, October 23, 2016, at St. Thomas Catholic Church in Peoria Heights.  A private funeral Mass will be at St. Thomas Catholic Church, with Monsignor Jason Gray officiating.  Wright & Salmon Mortuary is handling the arrangements. 
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made in Linda’s name to Illinois Cancer Care, 8940 N Wood Sage Rd. Peoria, IL 61615-7828.
