Linda L. (Bauer) Kromer, 84, of Sandusky, passed away peacefully early Monday afternoon, January 8, 2024, at her home after a battle with Alzheimer's Disease.

   She was born on March 5, 1939, in Sandusky, OH to William and Edith (Jeffrey) Bauer.  She was a 1957 graduate of St. Mary's High School and later received her teacher's certificate from St. John's College in 1960. After college, Linda taught at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic School, in Sandusky, for a short time and later taught in the Cleveland Metropolitan Schools. She married Paul A. Kromer in 1961 and they soon took over the family farm where they raised their seven children. They were happily married for 35 years. Linda later returned to work at St. Mary's School for nearly 20 years, before retiring. Her large family was truly her life and she enjoyed quality time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
