Mark Mindrum, 77

We mourn the loss of Mark Mindrum of Woodstock and previously of Stoughton, Wis., who passed away peacefully at his home surrounded by his loving family on Feb. 22, 2024.

Born on Nov. 18, 1946, in Stoughton, Mark’s journey through life was one marked by ambition, dedication, and an unwavering commitment to excellence.

High school sweethearts, Mark and Linda were married on Aug. 30, 1969. This date marks the beginning of their nearly 55-year journey together, a testament to their enduring love and partnership. They met in high school in Stoughton after Linda’s family relocated from Beloit, Wis.

Mark was a devoted family man, survived by his beloved wife, Linda; his son, Matthew; his daughter, Kristen; and four grandchildren. His love for his family was evident in every aspect of his life, always placing them at the forefront of his priorities.

Mark’s legacy is not only in the success he achieved in his career but in the values he instilled in his children, the love he shared with his wife, and the countless lives he touched both professionally and personally. His legacy, embodied in his cottage in Stoughton, on Shadyside Drive, was his paradise, open to all family and friends and is a centerpiece to his life.

Mark’s professional career was largely spent at Wallace Computer Services, where he served with distinction as vice president of sales and administration. His visionary leadership and strategic foresight were instrumental in steering the company through periods of significant growth and transformation. Mark was not just a leader but a mentor and a source of inspiration to many, embodying the values of hard work, perseverance, and ethics.

Mark’s absence leaves a void in the hearts of those who knew him, but his spirit will continue to inspire. As we bid farewell to a remarkable individual, we celebrate the enduring impact of his life. Mark Mindrum’s journey through life serves as a beacon of leadership, integrity, and love. His memory will forever be cherished and his legacy will continue to influence future generations.

Mark’s life story is a testament to the fact that true success is measured not just by professional achievements but by the love shared, the lives touched, and the legacy left behind. He will be profoundly missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.

In honoring Mark’s memory, the family requests that in lieu of flowers, contributions be made to either the American Lung Association via the website or The American Heart Association via the website
