Lynda K. Eirinberg, 68, of Rock Island, formerly of Lago Vista, Texas, died Saturday, March 11, 2017 at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, Iowa City.  A graveside service will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Hebrew Cemetery, Rock Island.  In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made in care of the Figge Art Museum, Davenport.  Wheelan-Pressly Funeral Home and Crematory, Rock Island, is assisting the family.

Lynda was born in Lake Park, Iowa on July 16, 1948, a daughter of John and Margaret "Peggy" Benson Louscher.  She attended Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, where she would meet her future husband, Jeff Eirinberg.  After many years of knowing one another, Jeff and Lynda reconnected and married in Rock Island on September 14, 2016.

Lynda led an extremely active and talented life.  After attending Morningside College, Lynda moved to Europe where she worked in marketing and promotions for the Deutsche Bank.  Her job involved entertaining many top company executives and clients.  Lynda left the bank to come back to the U.S. where she settled in Houston, Texas.  For 15 years, Lynda was Founder and CEO of Des Laurier Perfumes, Inc. 

After retirement, Lynda moved to Lago Vista, Texas where she would spend the next 25 years cooking and serving her community.  Lynda was widely regarded as a gourmet chef who created many delicious and compelling dishes for her community, friends and family.  Her passion for cooking led her and her daughter, Grace Bass, to write and publish a vegan cookbook called, "The Daniel's Fast Cookbook."  This book is sold nationally in Christian bookstores.  Lynda was very active at the Lago Vista Players and several area golf clubs.  She also enjoyed playing golf, was a major football enthusiast and was a fabulous party planner. 

Upon moving to Rock Island, Lynda became very active with the Figge Art Museum.  Lynda and Jeff strongly supported the museum and have also sponsored several exhibits.

Lynda's family considered her to be the most amazing women anyone would have ever met.  She was extremely generous and made many sacrifices for others.  She carried a tremendous level of admiration and regard where ever she was.

Those left to cherish her memory are her husband, Jeff Eirinberg, Rock Island; daughter, Grace Bass, Chandler, Ariz.; grandchildren, Austin Bass, Kaylyn McGowan and Ana Bass; brothers, David (Sue) Louscher, Larry (Mary) Louscher and John (Nancy) Louscher; and many other extended family.

Lynda was preceded in death by her parents and Grace's step-father, Lyle Anderson.
