Linnette “Lynn” Sattler, age 63 of Chilton, died on Tuesday, April 18, 2017 at her home in Chilton. She was born May 21, 1953 in Fond du Lac, daughter of the late Lawrence & Anna (Durben) Diedrich.

On August 7, 1976, Lynn married Dexter Sattler at Ebenezer United Church of Christ in Chilton. Through the entirety of their marriage, Lynn & Dexter made a great team raising their sons, treasuring time together with their grandson, and taking care of their great nephews. Lynn & Dexter also enjoyed each other’s company, especially on the many travels they took together.

Through most of her working career, Lynn proudly worked at a local medical facility where she was able to showcase her greatest talent and joy: Caring For Others. Lynn was a person whose genuine care and compassion was self evident through her generosity toward others and constantly looking for ways to be helpful to the people around her.

She was a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church and in her free time, Lynn enjoyed hunting for special antiques to collect, fashioning creative projects to decorate her home and to give away as gifts. She also looked forward to the end of October when she could put out all of her favorite Halloween decorations and share in the fun and laughter at her annual party. Lynn’s warm smile and her loving kindness will be greatly missed by all those who knew her.

Survivors include her husband: Dexter; children: Zach (Katie) Sattler, Chris Sattler; grandchild: August; her sisters: Ginny (William Gonzales) Johnson, Jeanette (Don) Kartheiser, Lorrie (Tunde) Awoyinka; her father-in-law and mother-in-law: Don & Diane Sattler; a sister-in-law: Donna (Don) Pingel; and a brother-in-law: Darren Sattler. She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Lynn was preceded in death by her parents; her step-father: Bob Hein; a brother-in-law: Dwane Sattler; and a sister-in-law: Cheri Sattler.

Funeral service will be at 12:00 Noon on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Good Shepherd Catholic Church (54 E. Main St.) in Chilton with the Rev. Ryan Krueger officiating. Friends may call at the Wieting Family Funeral Home (411 W. Main St.) in Chilton from 9:00 am until 11:30 am on Saturday, April 22, 2017.

Lynn’s family would like to thank Lynn's dear friend, Jackie Ausloos, the entire staff of St. Vincent Oncology Department and everyone with the Calumet County Hospice for the loving care that was given to Lynn and shown to her entire family.

Dexter and family. You have our sympathy. I just read about Lynn today while on vacation in Fla. Lynn was wonderful at putting one in better frame of mind while recovering from whatever was your problem. She will always be in my thoughts.

Dexter & Family,
Our sympathies to you during this, the most difficult time in your lives. Lynn had such a quiet, gentle, unassuming spirit full of love for all. The bond she grew & nurtured between your family was one of the strongest most unconditional examples of love between all of you. Her legacy of caring & love & helping others will live on forever inspiring all with her kind deeds. She fought a battle noone should have to & she did it with all of her strength & quiet dignity. Her soul is at peace leaving behind beautiful memories of a wonderful life filled with happiness & love.

Dexter and family, We want to extend our sympathy to you all on the passing of Lynn. She was one special person. One of the best nurses CMC ever had. Always making the surgical patients feel more at ease before and after surgery with her wit and humor. That was more healing than anything. She was a special Florence Nightingale! I once mentioned I admired her artistic talents and a set of ghosts she made and painted and before I knew it I had a set which now I will treasure more than ever! May God Bless you all during this difficult time!

Jim and Kathy Muenster (Chilton friends) - Apr. 22, 2017

Dexter, Chris, and Zach,
I can't begin to tell you how sorry I am. Lynn was a bright light to all who had the privilege of knowing her. The grace and dignity that she showed while going through her cancer journey was truly an inspiration. She lived her life to the fullest surrounded by you all and her beloved grandson and nephews. You are kept her fighting with every ounce of strength she had.

Your love and support meant the world to her and she would often talk about how much you love you all. We had many great talks about just every day things and how much she treasured doing the little things that most people would just dismiss.

Everyone became aware that Halloween was her favorite holiday of all and she would show us pictures of your house all decked out in it's Halloween finery. We would marvel at the hours and hours that she must have spent doing the decorating! We will all treasure the Halloween pieces she gave us that last day when you came to see us all at the clinic.

Lynn's ( and yours too Dexter) generosity knew no bounds. From the homemade treats, to fruit and veggie trays from Festival, to home grown produce from your garden... it was all appreciated.

We will miss our dear friend and mourn with you and your family as you comprehend this loss.

Thinking of all of you! Sending healing prayers your way.

Risa RN, Tina RN, and the rest of Dr. Tammela's staff
