Obituary for Linda Mae Belongia

LINDA MAE (PRESL) BELONGIA After a courageous fifteen-month battle with lung cancer, Linda Mae (Presl) Belongia passed away surrounded by family on September 7, 2011. Linda was born on July 30, 1955 in Marinette, Wisconsin to Robert and the late Margaret Presl. She married her high school sweetheart, Thomas Belongia, on June 14, 1975 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Oconto, Wisconsin. Linda faithfully served the City of Oconto for 23 years as elected Clerk-Treasurer and most recently City Administrator. Linda’s dedication to the City was uncompromised and she continued to work up until the time of her death. Her municipal knowledge was second to none, as demonstrated by her service to the Wisconsin Municipal Clerk’s Association, including a term as President. Linda was an avid runner and has completed four half marathons and countless other running events. She most recently completed the Cellcom Half Marathon in May and the Bellin Run in June. She also enjoyed being outdoors, working in her garden or the yard, and spending time in the kitchen. Linda’s greatest joys were times spent with her family, especially her two grandsons. Her cooking and hospitality made family events and holidays memorable. Survivors include her husband Thomas B. Belongia, Oconto; daughter Heidi Belongia, Milwaukee; son Andrew (Emily Green) Belongia, Green Bay; grandsons Drew and Alek Green-Belongia, Green Bay; father Robert Presl, Oconto; two brothers and two sisters, Robert Presl, Oconto; Mike Presl, Green Bay; Karen (Allen) Lefevre, Oconto; Kathryn (Aaron) Jarvey, Oconto; and nieces and nephews. Linda was preceded in death by her mother Margaret Presl. Linda is also survived by her faithful Scottish Terrier, “Scottee.” The family will receive relatives and friends at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church from 4 to 9 PM Sunday, September 11th, with prayer services by Deacon Walter Kaszynski at 7:30 PM. Visitation will continue Monday, September 12th, from 10 to 11 AM. Mass of Christian Burial will be Celebrated 11 AM Monday, September 12th, with Rev. Joel Sember officiating. Burial will be at Oconto Catholic Cemetery. On line condolences may be expressed at www.gallagherfuneralhome.net. Special thanks to CTCA, Green Bay Oncology, and Unity Hospice. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given for a scholarship to be made in Linda’s name.
