LINDA LOUISE MCARTHUR
Linda will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by her daughters, Jennifer (Cory), Jill (Ted), and grandchildren, Haley and Kole. She is survived by her beloved sister Marge, two sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law, as well as many nieces and nephews. Linda was predeceased by her husband Chuck, parents, Daisy (Hunt) and Elmer Peeler, brothers, George and James.
A caring, kind and supportive daughter, sister, wife, Mom, Grandma and friend put everyone's needs ahead of her own. With her generous heart and kind soul she made everyone feel special and welcome. She was truly an amazing lady. We will cherish many joyful memories, her silly charade antics with the kids, as well as the funny things she would say without missing a beat. Dear to Haley's heart will be the summers spent in Souris with Grandma and Grandpa, while Kole will remember all the special smiles and squeezes meant just for him.
Linda was born November 30, 1944 in Birtle, Manitoba where she spent her early years helping her mom around the old farmhouse and getting into mischief with Marge, George and Jimmy. After Grade 12 in Birtle, she went on to nursing college at St. Boniface Hospital in Winnipeg. In a recent hospital stay, she shared with one of the nurses her favourite part of nursing - the "operating room". After receiving her nursing degree, she married Chuck McArthur in 1965 - also of Birtle. They moved to Souris, Manitoba in 1966 where Linda nursed at Souris Hospital, raised two daughters and built a community of friends. Linda's dedication, work ethic and pride were evident in all that she did. Her 37 years spent nursing and her many friendships are reflective of that. She loved to bake, garden, read, travel and spend time with family and friends.
The family wishes to thank all those who visited Mom and supported us through this difficult time. Special thanks to Wendy, Dr. Lambda, his team and all the healthcare personnel for their exceptional care.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Linda's memory to Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or to the Canadian Cancer Society.
In accordance with Linda's wishes cremation has taken place. A memorial service was held Thursday, October 3, 2019 at St. Paul's United Church, Souris, Manitoba. Interment was in the Birtle Cemetery.
