Lisa M. Linhart, born May 11, 1973 to Lyle Linhart and Karen Linhart (Rustad), passed away on April 16, 2018 due to complications from cancer after fighting for more than two years.
Lisa (Ma) Linhart was a loving woman who made almost everyone feel welcome in her home, even if it was often a mess. It did not matter if you were family, friend, or a friend of a friend, Lisa’s infectious smile and laugh would make you feel welcome and at ease. Lisa graduated from the Ellsworth Sr. High School in 1993, has a very large family and many, many friends.

She is survived in life by the man she considered her husband Lonnie Dunn, her daughter Cera Dunn, her Mother and Step-father Karen and Mike Rustad, her Father and Step-mother Lyle and Carla Linhart, sisters Lorina Simich and Lauri Peter, Nephews Josh Steele and Kaleb Swagger, and one Niece Kayla Linhart-Reyes, many aunts, uncles, cousins, and many great nieces and nephews as well as many friends that considered her to be family.

A Memorial Service for Lisa will be held at 12:00 p.m., Saturday, April 28th at CrossRoad Community Church, W7562 US Hwy. 10, Ellsworth, WI. A Celebration of Her Life will continue until 2:30 p.m.

O’Connell-Benedict Family Funeral Home and Trusted Cremation Provider of Ellsworth, WI is assisting the family.

Tributes (5):

  • Lonnie,

    I got to meet you, Lisa and Cera at the River Falls Assembly of God Church. You guys blessed my heart and I hope that we as a church blessed yours. It has been sometime since I seen you all. Last time was when you had an accident outside of Beldenville by the bridge. I will keep you and your daughter in prayer. Lisa is no longer suffering and in a better place.

  • I am so sorry to hear of your great loss. Recently I lost my dear mother,
    and found great comfort in the Holy Bible, like at Isaiah 25 verse 8 –
    “The Sovereign Lord will swallow up death forever, and wipe away
    the tears from all faces.” Also at Revelation 21 verse 4, we find God’s
    promise to remove both pain and death. For more comfort, I turn
    to the website at: (Search: Comfort)

  • Lisa, you were my friend, my sister, my ma. You helped me through the good times and the bad. You were there for not only me but my kids, and that puts you in a very special place in my heart. We shared so many stories. We laughed and cried together. You were part of my family. Nothing will ever be the same without you but I know that you’re watching over all of us, protecting us, guiding us, still loving us. I can even hear you scolding Lonnie from the other room. We love you Ma. We will miss you, and never forget how you impacted each and every one of us. For well, my dearest friend.

  • Lisa, I don’t know where my life would be without having known you, Lonnie, and Cera. I do know that you helped to shape me into the man I am today. My heart goes out to those you’ve left behind. It saddens me to know that I couldn’t be there for you more in life. No matter what ever happened in the past, you will always be my extra ma. I wish everyone peace and strength in this sad time. Lisa, you left an impact on everyone who ever knew you. May we all be better people for having had you in our lives.

  • You have always been a mom to me. I have so many memories with you. You always knew how to make me laugh and smile. You are always going to be in my heart no matter what. You are my mom even in heaven. You are just my angel now. I hope you heard my prayers the other day when I had a break down. I miss you so much momma. I wish I could of heard your voice once more and be able to hear your laugh just one more time. Gave you a hug one last time. I was talking to my mom about coming up there to see everyone and I told her I neeed to go see you! Now it’s going to be so hard to come up there and not be able to give you a hug and tell you I love you. It’s going to be hard moving forward without you by our sides and to help us always smile and laugh. You always knew how to do that to anyone. I love you so much mama Lisa! I miss you with all of my heart. Help me through life and give me a sign your always with me. I love you sooooooooo much!
    Love your other baby girl Alicia Marie ❤️
