LINDA RIEBOCK, who was nominated by Phantom Regiment Hall of Fame volunteer Bill Riebock, first joined the Phantom Regiment organization as a volunteer in 1985 when her daughters became part of Phantom Regiment Pre-Cadets.
Her daughters, Sarah and Becky, would later march in Phantom Regiment Cadets and Phantom Regiment. While her daughters aged out, Linda never did. She has been a volunteer and board member for most of the past 35 years.
In her letter supporting the nomination, Phantom Regiment Hall of Fame cook Becky Nelson, said, “Her dedication and willingness to serve is admirable. She sets an example that would behoove many of us to follow.”
Linda’s contributions over the years are many and varied: head bus chaperone, show coordinator for Show of Shows, member of the board of directors, current medical director as well as a volunteer who does whatever is needed at the moment. Among her highlights was Dollar Days, a fundraiser she created in 1987 with the help of fellow hall of famer Kathy Vigna and the board of directors. Corps members simply went door to door in Rockford asking for a $1 donation. The event raised $10,000.
An additional letter of support was written by Rebecca Fahrney.
In her professional life, Linda is a retired nurse and lives in Rockford, Ill.
