Linda M. Springer, age 76, of rural Pearl, IL passed away on Tuesday, June 18, 2019 at her home with her family around her.  She was born on October 24, 1942 in Pittsfield, IL to Lyndle and Dorothy Holmes Lippincott.  She married her husband and partner in life, Robert “Bob” Springer on November 25, 1959 in Louisiana, MO, and he survives.

Linda graduated from Pittsfield High School in 1960, and then worked as a soda jerk at Miles Drug Store in Pittsfield.  She went on to work as a legal secretary for several lawyers in town including Judge Burrows, Bill Lowry, Jack Alsup, and Bryce and Brett Irving.  Linda then began working on the farm participating in every job there was to do, from feeding the livestock to planting to harvesting to doing the bookwork. She thoroughly enjoyed working and no job was too much of a task for her to take on.  Linda also liked to take care of everyone, feeding them daily meals as they worked.  She was a member of Greenpond Christian Church.  In her spare time, she enjoyed needlework and watching Julie dance in recitals.  She also loved her animals dearly.  Linda and Bob went together like brick and mortar, building a life and working next to each other daily.  She enjoyed their Sunday jeep rides, and even helped take care of his antique tractors.  Linda was the matriarch of the family, and always acted as caretaker.  Her positive attitude, strong will, and faith in God was unreal and she will be greatly missed.

She is survived by her loving husband of almost 60 years, Bob Springer; her children, Mark (Lisa) Springer of Pearl and Corinna (Ron “Hoss”) Mountain of Pittsfield, IL; four grandchildren, Lyndsie (Levi) Rosentreter, Jared (Beth Scott) Mountain, Bryttnie Springer, and Julie (Alec Boylen) Mountain; and a special niece and nephew, Kirk Carter and Stacy Reynolds.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lyndle and Dorothy Lipincott; a grandson, Jason Mountain; and a sister, Ruth Ann Lippincott.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, June 22, 2019 at 10:00 AM at Niebur Funeral Home in Pittsfield.  Interment will follow at Greenpond Cemetery near Pearl.  Visitation will be held on Friday, June 21, 2019 from 4:00 PM to 7:00 PM at the funeral home.  Memorials are suggested to American Cancer Society or Pike County Animal Shelter.  Online condolences may be left to the family at  Niebur Funeral Home is handling the arrangements.

So sorry to read of Linda's passing. I'll be praying for your family during this difficult time. Bob and Linda were friends of my parents, Don and Jane Smith, for as long as I can remember. My parents had the most special friends that just stayed friends forever. I smiled when I thought about my mom greeting Linda as she arrived to her eternal home.
