Linda S. Stum, 57, of rural Lebanon, passed away on Thursday, May 18, 2017, at Witham Memorial Hospital in Lebanon, after a courageous 15-month battle with inflammatory breast cancer.
She was born on Dec. 1, 1959, in Lebanon, a daughter of Harry B. Bing and Ann Stum. Linda was a 911 dispatcher for over 20 years.
She had started with the Zionsville Police Department and then worked at the Boone County Dispatch Center. For the past 13 years, she worked dispatch for Clinton County, retiring in January 2017. She twice received the Indiana Sheriff's Association Dispatcher of the Year award, once for Boone County in 1997 and the other in 2009 for Clinton County.
She was of the Methodist faith, and through the years, had attended Whitestown United Methodist Church, Milledgeville United Methodist Church and Salem United Methodist Church. Linda loved all animals, especially cats. She loved reading, watching her favorite television shows, and mowing the grass.
The family would like to thank each and every one who supported Linda throughout her courageous battle. Survivors include her parents, Harry B. and Ann Stum; and a sister, Brenda L. Stum, all of rural Lebanon.
Visitation will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday, May 23, at Myers Mortuary, 1502 N. Lebanon St., in Lebanon. Services will immediately follow at the funeral home, with Pastor Gina Kirkland, officiating. Interment will follow services at the Zionsville Cemetery in Zionsville.
