She was born May 2, 1945 in Hollidaysburg, PA to Emery and Beryl (Detwiler) Teeters.


Linda loved her family and pets.

Linda especially enjoyed taking scenic rides through Washington Park Beach and Indiana Dunes with her husband, Bob. She loved spending time with her beloved four-legged companion, Blue.


She married the love of her life, Robert “Bob” Denow, who preceded her in death.

Also preceding her in death were her parents; one daughter, Lori Popard-Jones; one brother, Russell “Red Bird” Teeters; one sister, Emily “Jean” Hintermyer; and two aunts, Ida Detwiler and Elva “Jackie” Detwiler-Garwick.


Linda’s surviving legacy is her daughter, Lisa (Steve) Wisman of Harrisonburg, VA; seven grandchildren, Todd (Vanessa) Wisman of Ft. Bragg, NC, Tyler Wisman of Richmond, VA, Olivia Smith of Gary, IN, Emily Lucas of La Porte, IN, Megan Lucas of Michigan City, IN, Geneva (Samantha Beck) Jones, Niles, MI, and Abigail (Katelynn Rhodes) Jones of Michigan City; seven great-grandchildren, Lucas, Makayla, Nicholas, Dallas, Emma Rose, Michael, and August; one special cousin, Robin Panasiti-Guajardo; and a host of those who loved her and called her “Maw Maw”.


A celebration of life will be held from 4 – 6:30 p.m., Friday, September 30, 2022 at her home. Lakeview Funeral Home and Crematory, 247 W. Johnson Rd., La Porte (219) 362-3100 will be caring for the arrangements.
