JACQUELINE LINDA LIBERTA On January 26, 2019, after a lengthy illness, Jacqueline Linda Liberta passed away peacefully at the age of 77. She was much loved and will be missed by brother David Turner; sisters, Trish Rawsthorne and Cathie Turner; nephew Kristopher Turner; foster son Erik Dalman; and her numerous friends and family members. Linda was predeceased by her parents, Mavis and Ronald Turner, and first husband Anthony Liberta. The eldest of four children, she grew up in Winnipeg, attended school in River Heights, and graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Home Economics. She later went on to obtain a Bachelor and Master's Degree in Education from the University of Manitoba. During the early years of her teaching career, she taught in Fort Frances and then Niagara Falls where she met and married Tony Liberta. After Tony's passing, she returned to Winnipeg where she continued her career as an educator, working in the St. James Assiniboia School Division until her retirement. Linda brought tremendous passion and talent to everything she did. She loved being a teacher and she made a special connection with many of her students, both in the classroom and through extracurricular activities. She was an accomplished pianist, seamstress, and gardener. She was always available to help a friend or family member, and to support causes in her community. She volunteered with the Lion's Club, the Fringe Festival, and Habitat for Humanity. No task was too challenging for her, whether it was designing and sewing costumes for a musical, painting her house, landscaping her yard, or providing a refuge for homeless teens. Linda was a fun loving individual with a wide range of interests; she was an adventuresome traveller, and through the course of her life explored many parts of the world. She loved spending summers at the Sandy Hook cottage with her family. Her nieces and nephews have many fond memories of swimming, canoeing and summer games with "Auntie Lindy". In later years, Linda became a foster mother to Erik, a young man who brought great pride and joy into her life. Linda was a special person whose warm heart and generous spirit touched the lives of many people. She was much loved, and will always be remembered. In Linda's memory, donations may be made to the Lions Clubs International or Habitat for Humanity. A memorial service will be held at a later date to be announced.
