It is with heavy hearts that we DJ, Gail and Amanda announce the passing of our loving mother on Oct.21.2022. Born in New Waterford, she was the daughter of the late Archie and Mildred Lemoine.
Linda enjoyed life to the fullest. She loved going to bingo and visiting her friends for tea, but most of all she loved being with her family, especially on Sundays when everyone would gather for "the family dinner". She had a heart of gold and would do anything for anyone. She loved going for drives with her late husband Danny, who was also the love of her life.
Linda is survived by her son DJ (Julie) daughters Gail (Billy) Amanda (Tim) Grandchildren Britney (Trey), Dakota, Jessi, Trace, Breann, Ryder, Landon, Layton and great-grandson Rowan. Her brothers Archie (deceased) Victor (deceased) Teddy (deceased) David (Clara) Garrey (Cathy) Bruce and Leo. Sisters Lorraine (deceased) Gail (deceased) as well as many nieces and nephews. Her good friends Ellen and George(brother-in-law) Evelyn, Thelma, Elaine and Jackie.

Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of McLellan's Funeral Home, and a private family gathering will be held at a later date. You may express condolences, share memories and photos directly to the family by visiting the TRIBUTE WALL tab at the top of this page.
Farewell Dear Mother
Somewhere in my heart
beneath all my grief and pain,
Is a smile I still wear
at the sound of your dear name.
The precious word is ‘MOTHER’,
she was my world you see,
But now my heart is breaking
cause she’s no longer here with me.
God chose her for His angel
to watch me from above,
To guide me and advise me
and know that I’m still loved.
The day she had to leave me
when her life on earth was through,
God had better plans for her,
for this, I surely knew.
When I think of her kind heart
and all those loving years,
My memories surround me
and I can’t hold back the tears.
She truly was my best friend,
someone I could confide in,
She always had a tender touch
and a warm and gentle grin.
I want to thank you Mother
for teaching me so well,
And though the time has come
that I must bid you this farewell.
I’ll remember all you’ve taught me
and make you proud you’ll see.
Thank you, my Dear Mother,
for all the love you showed me.
Although you’ve left this earth
and now you’ve taken flight,
I know that you are here with me
each morning, noon and night.
