Obituary for Linda M Hirte (Sanchez)

Linda M  Hirte (Sanchez)
Linda "Lu" Marie Hirte (nee Sanchez), age 63, passed away January 31st, 2021 after a 26-year long battle with Scleroderma. Linda was preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Shirley Sanchez and her brother, Jim. She is survived by her high school sweetheart and husband, Martin; children Tony (Ciara) Hirte and Christine "Bean" (Nick) Boisen; grandchildren Landon, Cody, Lola Belinda and Bennett Boisen; sister Jodi (Tom) Davis; and many relatives and friends.
Linda was born in St. Paul, Minnesota on August 21, 1957 and was a lifelong resident of South St. Paul. She fondly remembered growing up with her brother and sister and her 12th Avenue neighbors. Linda attended Roosevelt Elementary School and danced at Mary Vavro Dance Studio for many years. She went to South St. Paul High School where she participated in multiple activities, developed lifelong friendships, met the love of her life, and became a proud graduate of the class of '75.
Linda then went on to attend Winona State University and earned Bachelor of Science degrees in both Education and Physical Education and Health. Linda's kids loved hearing stories from her and the Winona ladies about their college shenanigans.
Marty and Linda were married shortly after college and moved back to South St. Paul after a brief time in Rochester, Minnesota. She was able to stay home with their twin children. Later she went on to teach reading and math at Washington Elementary School and Kaposia Education Center with students and colleagues she loved dearly.
She loved shopping, shoes, and Caribou Coffee. She enjoyed summer most of all and heat was a “beautiful thing.” She was sure to be found next to the pool or watching the Twins play at Target Field. Every year she looked forward to Hockey Tourney time and the Minnesota State Fair. The family’s homemade “No Fair State Fair” this past summer will be a cherished family memory. She very much enjoyed Facebook; it allowed her to see joyful and happy adventures of old and new friends and fun family times.
From class reunions to vacations and birthday parties to weddings, Linda was always eager and willing to help organize a good time. Decorations, signs, calligraphy, and toilet paper were her specialty and she voluntarily contributed her art to family and friends.
Linda enjoyed traveling and was fortunate to see many places including parts of Europe with Marty. She went on multiple girls’ trips across the country and was able to visit/volunteer at MLB All-Star Weeks in Kansas City, Miami, San Diego, Cincinnati and Minneapolis. Her favorite travels included trips to Mexico for the weddings of her children (to her favorite son-in-law and favorite daughter-in-law!).
Marty and Linda continued to enjoy rides on the bicycle-built-for-two and taking trips to wineries across the state. They liked to share how their first date was prom of Linda’s sophomore year and that they had actually been together longer than the 40 years of marriage they celebrated in the fall.
Most of all, Gramma Lulu adored her “tootsie babies.” She was a one-of-a-kind grandma and never failed to make them feel special. She delighted in attending their sporting events, school activities, dance recitals, and celebrations both big and small. She made the best banana bread and gave the biggest hugs.
Linda had a sparkling, generous, strong-willed personality and will be most remembered for her ability to stay positive and selfless in the face of such a devastating disease. We have faith she is watching over us and dancing with all our angels at a well-organized, well-decorated, and color-coordinated shindig.
Per her wishes to keep everyone safe, a private Mass of the Christian Burial will be held and streamed Tuesday, February 9th at 10am. The stream can be found on the Kandt & Tetrick Facebook page and taped delayed on the church website stbeagan.org. Interment to follow at Oak Hill Cemetery in South St. Paul. There will also be a celebration of life at a later date. Don’t forget to wear your pearls.
Memorials Preferred to the Scleroderma Foundation or the South St. Paul Educational Foundation.
