This was the obituary from the October 29, 2009 issue of the La Canada Valley Sun:


Susan E. Linberg

Susan Elizabeth Linberg, 55, passed away Thursday night, Oct. 22, in La Cañada Flintridge, ending a year-long struggle with brain cancer.

Sue was born April 1, 1954 in San Diego to Eugene and Monica Linberg; the middle child of three girls. She went to elementary school at St. Bede the Venerable, and completed La Cañada High School in three years. She received an associate’s degree in liberal arts followed by an associate’s degree in registered nursing from Pasadena City College. Her first nursing job was as an acute unit RN at Huntington Memorial Hospital. At the same time, she continued her studies and earned a bachelor’s degree in health sciences from Chapman University.

Sue’s life was dedicated to nursing. Her career included employment at Glendale Adventist Medical Center, Glendale Memorial Hospital, Sherman Oaks Hospital and finally the Surgical Eye Center, a job that she truly loved.

When she wasn’t nursing, she was enjoying life. Some favorite past times were dancing, going to the opera, shopping, attending the Renaissance Faire in costume, hiking, taking photos and generally spending time with her friends.

Sue is preceded in death by her father Eugene H. Linberg. She is survived by her mother, Monica Linberg, her two sisters, Jane Zikratch of Visalia, Jane’s husband Tom and son David; and Patricia Anttila of Wilmington Del.; husband Art and daughters Marlena and Ashley.

Viewing will take place Oct. 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Cabot & Sons, Pasadena. Funeral Mass will be Friday, Oct. 30, 2:30 p.m. at St. Bede Church in La Cañada. Interment private. Memorial donations may be made to the National Brain Tumor Society.

Sue was a great person and I was glad to have known her.

Sue was one of the kindest & nicest persons I have ever known. Several months before she passed away, Mimi & I visited her in the hospital. Even though she had had a bad seizure about an hour or  so before, she was still lecturing me about my diet & proper health care for my heart condition. Her enthusiasm for life was contagious. Working with her on decorating the room for our 35th reunion is a moment that I will always remember. Thank you, Sue for showing me how to tie a bow the right way.
