She married (Delmar) Dale Linman in Aurora CO on July 2, 1950. Two children completed their family (Dale) David 1953 and Tina Marie 1955.
Except for a 2-year detour to Corona, CA where Dale served in the United States Marine Corp. Ann was a true Colorado girl. Living in Denver, Grand Junction and back to Crawford where she stayed. Ann enjoyed the outdoors, picnics, camping, gardening, dancing and get-togethers with family and friend.
She loved her role of Grandma to Sarah and Adam Gentzler, Savanna Schreiner and Jarrett Linman; Great Grams to Madison Gentzler, Beau David and Ruby Anne Schreiner. Ann is survived by her daughter, Tina Gentzler (Rich), daughter-in-law, Donna Linman and Robert Dahlberg, her longtime companion; his daughter, Kathy Steckel (Rick) and their 2 children, Erik and Anna; 4 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, cousins and in-laws.
