Linda Lee Sherman was born on June 27, 1943 in Whitewater, the daughter of Leonard and Florence (nee Jacobs) Sherman. She was a 1961 graduate of Watertown High School. On October 29, 1966, she was united in marriage to Peter Van Beem at Immanuel Ev. Lutheran Church in Watertown. Linda had been employed as a Welding Supervisor and Safety Director at Watertown Metals for over twenty years.
Linda’s zest for life, caring heart, and mischievous wit will be remembered and cherished by all who knew her. She loved digging in her flower gardens, garage sales, driving fast cars, and Mallo Cups. A charitable soul, she was a loyal supporter of the Watertown Public Library, volunteered for Rainbow Hospice, and frequently donated to the Watertown Humane Society. Her personal motto, “life is uncertain, eat dessert first,” perfectly sums up how she spent her time on Earth, appreciating each day and living to the fullest.
Linda is survived by her husband, Peter Van Beem of Watertown; two children, Mark (Sandra) Van Beem and Kristin Van Beem; two grandchildren, Vicki Van Beem and Jeffery Van Beem; great-grandchildren, Preslee, Brentley and Shelby Van Beem; sister-in-law, Dien Poot-Van Beem as well as nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. She was preceded in death by her parents; first husband, LeRoy Schlesner, and sisters, Joyce Nass and Madeline Reese.
