Linda fought an amazing, courageous battle with Multiple Sclerosis for 32 years. Linda's courage, positive attitude and inner beauty was an inspiration that impacted all she met. Her smile and genuine caring spirit were infectious. Linda was a loving wife, devoted mother, and passionate grandmother.

In 1974, Linda, Anthony and family emigrated to Canada to settle and raise their family in Brandon. Linda's focus was her family, faith and the pursuits of her children including her own love of horses. She was a tireless volunteer and gave back to her community, enjoying her time at the Fleming School Library, church, Virden Pony Club and Brandon Light Horse Society.
