Linnett E. Williams, age 64, of Mabel, died Friday, March 19, 2021, at her home surrounded by loved ones after a long, courageous fight with cancer.
Linnett was born July 12, 1956, in Spring Grove, Minn., to Irvin and Marion (Soiney) Vickerman. She graduated from the Spring Grove High School in 1974. Linnett married Danny Williams and they later divorced.
Linnett was known for her work ethic. She was a dedicated, hardworking employee at the Hitching Post, Hometown Foods, and the Meadows of Mabel. The Ivy Grove was her last place of employment, where she welcomed customers with her sweet smile.
Linnett loved spending time with her grandchildren and would always make sure to have a baked goodie for them. She had a very special group of lifelong friends that enjoyed going out to lunch, overnight getaways and true genuine friendship that spanned many years.
Linnett’s hobbies included flower and vegetable gardening, mowing the lawn, Ranger rides and time outdoors at the campground where friends and family enjoyed many campfires with her. Linnett was always baking special treats to give to family and friends and loved sending greeting cards to loved ones.
Linnett is survived by a son, Heath (Heather) Williams; grandchildren Colby James, Samantha Ann, Whitney Kathleen, and Lindsey Elaine; her special friend Heath Wenthold, siblings Lois Day, Ronald Vickerman, Curtis (Lisa) Vickerman, Laurie (Al) Wendel, all of Mabel, and Gary (Diane) Vickerman of Canton; and several nieces and nephews.
Linnett was preceded in death by her parents Irvin and Marion Vickerman, sisters Diana Vickerman and Phyllis Waadevig, brother Paul Vickerman, brothers-in-law Clifford Waadevig and Jim Day, sister-in-law Judy Vickerman and infant nieces Kari Ann Vickerman and Jodi Ann Wilhelmson.
A memorial service will be 11 a.m., Saturday, March 27 at the Mabel First Lutheran Church. Lunch will follow at the Mabel American Legion, where the family will join everyone for a time of celebrating Linnett’s life and sharing memories.
The Mengis Funeral Home in Mabel is assisting the family.
