Linda, forever a Maritimer at heart, grew up in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Linda moved to Toronto, Ontario and earned a degree in Home Economics from Ryerson University. Linda had a successful career as a test kitchen manager for Chatelaine Magazine and later became a passionate home economics and kindergarten teacher at Philip Pocock and Christ the King Catholic Schools. Linda and her husband raised their two children in Mississauga, Ontario, later moving to Collingwood, Ontario to enjoy their retirement.
Linda had many passions and lived a vibrant life full of love, laughter, compassion and joy. She was an avid traveller, seamstress, cook and golfer but she will be remembered most for her compassionate and generous spirit toward the family members and friends who she held close to her heart.
