I didn’t know Jean Linderman’s middle name, but it doesn’t matter. I knew her as my Aunt Jean. When I was growing up in New York, my family and hers lived less than 10 miles apart and we saw each other frequently. Sometimes we’d just drop in on Jean and Herb—and later Nancy, their daughter. She was a gracious hostess, always had some ice cream in the freezer. But the memory I cherish the most is when she asked me to build a small mudroom addition onto their cottage at Wolf Lake. The only previous building experience I had was a woodshed, yet she had the confidence in me that I could build her a mudroom, complete with a corner cabinet and stairs. It came out wicked good. A few years later, I chose a career as a builder and carpenter, which I’m not sure I would have followed if it had not been for her encouragement.

I sat next to Aunt Jean after Nancy’s memorial service and wondered if it would be the last time I might see her. She was like a second mother to me and I didn’t want to acknowledge to myself that one day she might be gone.
