(nee Nobiss)

Our beloved Mother and Grandmother passed away with family by her side on January 2nd, 2022 at Grace Hospital.  Linda will be lovingly remembered by her sons Donald (Tracey), Jamie (Crystal) and daughter Corralie (Jody); along with grandchildren Kayla (Matt), Maya (Thomas), Emma, Owen (Hayley), Jessica and Erika.  She will also be deeply missed by her brothers Dennis (Phyllis), Lionel (Linda), John, Terry (Donna) and sisters Janet, Joan, Lillian and Barbara (Al) as well as many friends and other family members.  

She was predeceased by her parents Elizabeth & Thomas, her husband Peter, her brother Leonard, and her sister Geraldine, as well as her brothers in-law Clifford, Jim and Bruce.

Linda was born in Stonewall, MB on July 7, 1951.  Linda moved with her family to Winnipeg as a child.  She left school and started working as a teenager to make ends meet.  As an adult, Linda went back to school to obtain her Grade 12 Equivalency Diploma and went on to graduate from the Red River College Community Development program in 1996.  Upon completion of her diploma, Linda dedicated her passion and knowledge to helping Adult Indigenous learners improve their lives and opportunities as an Adult Literacy Instructor with the Centre for Aboriginal Human Resource and Development Learning and Literacy Centre. A proud moment for Linda was in 2013 when she was nominated for the prestigious Province of Manitoba’s Lieutenant Governor Generals Award for her commitment and work within the provinces Literacy sector.

Linda loved spending time with her brothers and sisters, and always made an effort to stay up to date with their lives and current events. Linda loved discussing crafts, attending antique sales with her family and hosting pot-lucks with her grandbabies. Enjoying sunny days out at the cabin with family always held a special place in Linda’s heart. Later on in Linda’s life she developed a special talent and love for sewing, which she shared with many friends and family members in the way of blankets, table runners, bowl holders, bags and many other items that became precious keepsakes to us all.  Linda enjoyed traveling to British Columbia to visit with her family out west. She would often speak of her love of the mountains and would jump at any opportunity to travel that way. 

Linda was a proud Metis woman. She was courageous in life and was always ready to provide direction and share her thoughts and opinions with family.  Linda was a pillar of strength for her family, and gave all of herself to ensure that others were safe and healthy.     

Linda fought a hard battle for the past 8 months, never wanting to cause anyone worry or concern.  She was tough, and carried this innate strength with her throughout her life and within the many roles she assumed. We are at peace knowing she is no longer suffering, and is now safe in the arms of the love of her life, Peter.  

A special thanks to the doctors and nurses who cared for her at Cancer Care and the Grace Hospital.
