Adelinda Eleanora Dishman "Linda," age 82 of Warren, died Sunday, March 31, 2019 at Arden Court Assisted Living in Sterling Heights. She was born October 8, 1936 in Detroit, daughter of the late Domenico and the late Antonia (nee: Delvecchio) Sanitate.

Linda grew up in Detroit and graduated from St. Catherine's High School. In the years following high school, Linda met Patricia's brother William "Jerry" who would be the one to steal her heart. Dating led to romance, and romance led them to the altar where the two lovebirds shared their vows of marriage to become husband & wife in the eyes of family and friends alike. The year was 1957, the beginning of their lives together building upon the comforts of home, raising four beautiful children, and growing deeper in love with each passing day.

The couple settled down and Linda worked for Detroit Edison until her first child was born. She would then become a full time mom, taking care of her family and raising her children. When their youngest child began school, Linda decided to return to work and secured a position with Warren Consolidated Schools where she extended the next 21 years of dedicated service until finally accepting her retirement.

Although Linda worked extremely hard as a mother and teacher, she still found time to enjoy the things she loved the most in life. She enjoyed music and was known to sing along to a variety of songs. Other free time would find Linda sitting in her easy chair in front of the TV being entertained by some of her old, favorite movies. Though life could be serious, Linda chose fun as often as possible,...she was always known for telling jokes. Linda was proud of many aspects of her life, but none so much as the pride she held in her Italian heritage.

Linda loved her family. She was honored to bake and cook for them any time the opportunity presented itself. She was proud to be the mother of her successful children and enjoyed the walks they took around the family cottage in Harbor Beach. Family meant the world to Linda. Not only was she close with the family she and William created, she remained close with her siblings as well.

Linda was the beloved wife of the late Jerry. Dear mother of Larry (Suzanne) Dishman, Jerome (Roseanne) Dishman, Catherine "Katie" Dishman, and Matthew (Janet) Dishman. Loving grandmother of Ellen, Stephen, Jeanine, Caci, Jacob, Domenico, and Rocco. Sister of Mary (the late Jack) Mulhern, Giovanni (Susan) Sanitate, Frank (Terri) Sanitate, Margie (Merrill) Budor, Veronica (Bill) Middleton, and the late Lucy (the late Bill) Taylor.

Visitation for Linda will be held Friday, April 5th from 3- 9 pm, with a 6 pm Rosary Service, at the D.S. Temrowski & Sons Funeral Home, 30009 Hoover Road at Common (12 ½ Mile Rd) in Warren. Her Memorial Mass will take place at 9:30 am on Saturday, May 4th at St. Faustina Catholic Church (formerly St. Edmund) in Warren.

Memorial donations are welcomed to the Capuchin Soup Kitchen, 1820 Mt. Elliott Street, Detroit, MI 48207. (
