Linda's beautiful smile, radiant eyes and youthful energy will forever be remembered by her family and friends. Linda embraced life, lived in the moment, and loved to dance!
Linda will be missed by her children, Lisa, Jay, and Greg, their partners, Stephen Myers, Julie Cullen, and Kristy Green, and grandchildren, Eva and Julian Myers, and Oliver and Ellis Lev. She will also be missed by her brother Randy Price and her sister Donna Price, who we are grateful to for her immense support and time spent at Linda's side during her last weeks and days. Linda was predeceased by her mother and closest friend, Norma Price.
Born in Winnipeg on November 18, 1940, Linda was always active and energetic. She loved a good time and would often create one if need be. After moving to Los Angeles with family in her teen years where she attended high school, Linda ventured off to New York City on her own to work and explore. Linda returned to Winnipeg and started a family in her early 20s. As her children grew up, Linda, along with a good friend, started giving tours of Winnipeg to out of town guests. She was a great ambassador for the City. She also managed sales and marketing for many hotels throughout the city.
Linda spent some time in the 1980s as lead choreographer for the Winnipeg Blue Bomber Cheerleaders. She loved her role with the Club and was very proud of her girls. For years, she was an active member of Unicity Tennis Club. Her greatest passion, however, was dance. She danced jazz and tap with various dance companies around the City for decades and made many close friendships along the way. She shared this love of dance with her only granddaughter, Eva. The two developed an incredibly special bond through the years.
Linda's family are thankful for the warmth and compassion shown to them by nurse Janine Peters at Grace Hospice during her final few days.
Linda's family will be celebrating her life in 2021 when family and friends are able to travel.

Condolences & Memories (10 entries)
Jay, sorry to hear of your mom's passing. She always a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes. With her energy and love for life, I am certain she made everyone smile and made the most routine events special. Take care. Madeleine Frost (nee: Brock) - Posted by: Madeleine Frost (Friend) on: Nov 12, 2020
I am so sorry for your loss. We were neighbours on Glenwood Crescent in the 50's and my brothers and I have been sharing memories about Linda, Randy, Donna, Mr. And Mrs. Isidor and Grandma Mrs. Killeen. Those were good times. Our sympathy and condolences on your loss. - Posted by: Marlyce (Kroeker) Swinnerton (Neighbour) on: Aug 31, 2020
A dear and loyal friend. I would imagine St. Peter is off on stress leave by now. Condolences to family. - Posted by: Joe Maguire (friend) on: Aug 31, 2020
Linda was an incredibly special person. My father who recently passed away valued her friendship and I had a great time playing tennis with her. It didn't matter to her that I was just a teenager at the time she treated me as a friend. My deepest sympathies. - Posted by: Jim Clarkson (Old neighbour ) on: Aug 29, 2020
Linda was my first cousin on the Isidor side of my family. My sister Jackie Hodgson and Weldon Ridley, both now deceased, were closer in age to Linda. The last time I saw Linda we had lunch at Rae & Jerry's and she was still the beautiful, classy lady I remembered with a great sense of humour. My sincere sympathy to all of Linda's family at this sad time. - Posted by: Cathy Poole (Cousin ) on: Aug 29, 2020
This is such sad news. Greg, Lisa, Jay, and your families, please accept our family’s condolences. We spent so many wonderful, endless summers with you at the lake, and Auntie Linda never seemed the least bit perturbed by the endless antics. Those truly were the days. Know our thoughts are with you at this time. The Schwartzs - Posted by: Stuart Schwartz (Friend) on: Aug 27, 2020
Lynda and I are saddened to receive from Cathy Poole, the notification of Linda's passing. All of us offspring and descendants of the "Simpson Clan" are becoming fewer. Some info has come from Denise Esterer - thank you! Linda was always a bit of a 'character' and didn't mind telling it like it was. Her Manitoba personalized vehicle licence plate was "WOTEVA"; and I still have her email address "firstname.lastname@example.org" and it is still in my Live Mail 'contacts'. She was also MISS BLUE BOMBER way back when - in case you didn't know. Thankfully, my wife would go back to Winnipeg to visit some of our family and Linda (health permitting) was included in them. Our condolences to all her family - particularly Randy and Donna and of course her children: Greg, Jay, and Lisa. Daniel J. & Lynda M. Dunbar, Kamloops, BC We shall miss her. - Posted by: Daniel & Lynda Dunbar (Cousin) on: Aug 23, 2020
Linda and I were old friends dating back to the 1940s We grew up as neighbors on Bannerman Ave. I have many fond memories of our times together. We always had a lot of fun when we saw each other. - Posted by: Gail Hamanishi (Old friend) on: Aug 22, 2020
My condolences on the passing of your loved one, Linda Lev. My mother is Beverley Isidor. Her father was Russ Isidor. Beverley is currently living in a care home and has dementia but I know she would have wanted to pass on her sympathy. Kindly, Denise Esterer - Posted by: Denise Esterer (Cousin) on: Aug 15, 2020
My condolences to the family - her happy smile will be missed - and thank you to Linda for introducing me to her “Uncle Don” and bringing happiness to my life. She was a very kind person. - Posted by: Diane Merker (Friend) on: Aug 15, 2020
