LINDA DEL JOHNSTON
March 19, 1944 October 10, 2020
Del is predeceased by her husband George, her sister Billie, and her mother Wilma. She is survived by her first husband, Tom, her two sons; Tom and Sean and her three grandchildren; Devon, Kelly and Rhean. We also can't leave out her dogs.
She loved all dogs and they all loved her. She bred Shelties and her home was always a dog's paradise.
For this reason, we ask that in lieu of flowers, please donate to your favourite pet shelter. Or, just give your dog a little pat on the belly, a scratch behind the ears, a run at the park, or a hug and tell them it's from Del.
We love you mom.

We are sorry to hear of Del’s passing. We lived across the street from Del and George on Cherokee Bay. She loved watching our boys play in the front yard from her kitchen window. We always enjoyed our chats with each other and Del even brought home some scotch for Bill on her trip to Scotland. They enjoyed sharing a drink of fine scotch together. Our thoughts are with her family. - Posted by: Cindy and Bill Gammon (Neighbours) on: Oct 23, 2020
Sincerest Sympathy to all who loved & had the privilege of knowing Del. I idolized her from childhood & looked up to her always. I will forever cherish the memories I have of her & her family. She was definitely a shining star in my world. - Posted by: Cathy Olive (Dunwoody) (Friend) on: Oct 18, 2020
I grew up living beside Del and her family in a duplex on Harbison Avenue for many years. Wilma and my mom became very good friends and I maintained a close relationship with Billie for many years. I have a lot of fun memories from those years on Harbison and the pranks my brothers played on all us girls! I remember Del’s children as young boys and I wish to extend my deepest sympathies to Tom and Sean for the loss of their Mom. - Posted by: Marcia (Former neighbor ) on: Oct 17, 2020
