December 21, 1934 ~ April 18, 2022 (age 87)


Susana “Linda” Jantz our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Aunt, and Friend was taken from us on April 18, 2022, in Atwater, California. Linda was born on December 21, 1934, in Winton, California to Katherine and Henry Giesbrecht, the fourth of eight children. When Linda was eighteen she met and married the love of her life, Willard Jantz. Willard and Linda enjoyed 65 years of marriage, raising three children. The marriage lasted until Willard's death in 2019. Linda was quite the entrepreneur. Although she left school after the 11th grade, she was able to use her sewing skills and business savvy to operate Linda Jantz Draperies for over 40 years, a highly successful business that allowed Willard and Linda to provide for their family, buy the almond ranch they always wanted, and live comfortably well into their eighties. Linda was preceded in death by her husband Willard, her mother and father, three brothers, and one sister. Linda is survived by her son Steven Jantz (Kathy), daughter Lynette Way (Dean), and daughter Kathy Van Alst (Bryan Hollon), eight grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. Linda enjoyed gardening, sewing, reading, playing with her dogs, working on puzzles, and many trips to the local casinos. Linda's family would like to thank her caregivers, and the Bristol Hospice staff for the exceptional care smiles, and laughs they provided during the last days of her life. We will always be grateful. A viewing will be held from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 5th at Ivers and Alcorn Funeral Home in Atwater, and graveside services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, May 6th at the Winton Cemetery
