It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Linda, after a brief battle with cancer. Loving wife of 34 years of Grant, daughter of Doris Clarkson (deceased) and John Clarkson, sister of Roger Clarkson (Art), Sheila Cox (Dan), Dilys Arnold (deceased), sister-in-law of John Peart (Brenda), Susan Csaszar (Elmer), Mary Devitt (Richard) and Sandy Freeman (John) and also survived by several nieces and nephews. Linda received a B.A. in Ancient Civilizations from Carleton University as well as her Teacher’s Certificate previously. She had a passion for history, music including playing her violin and singing in the church choir, travel, all things British, cooking, reading and her MGB followed by her Mini Cooper. Linda was a person of strong faith and moral conviction. Linda and Grant had a deep and loving marriage filled with wonderful memories, new experiences and adventures in keeping with Linda’s “why not” attitude. The family wishes to thank the amazing staff in the ICU and the 8th Floor west at the Ottawa General Hospital for their thoughtful and compassionate care and support.
