Along with Helen, who was the middle child, there was Betty, Edna, Shirley, Peggy, Winston, Collin, Karen, Gerald and Roger. "My mother was quite busy and she was always a homemaker. She always gave us lots of love," she said.
BELLEVILLE – Lise Lindenberg is a drama teacher and considered a local hero to some. Susanne Quinlan, director of operations at Gleaners Food Bank, said in an email to Hidden Heroes that Lindenberg is a hero to her because of all the work she has put into the Gleaners Food Bank. Lindenberg has raised money for their regional warehouse for the last 5 years. Lindenberg's involvement in the community all started out after she began volunteering at the community theatre, Belleville Theatre Guild. She has been involved in multiple productions since 1993.
