Linda Catherine Parker (nee Whiting)

October 6, 1943 - February 8, 2019

It is with heartfelt sadness that we announce the passing of Linda, at the age of 75, surrounded by her family.

She will be greatly missed by her husband Waverly, of 55 years, her children Curtis (Dianne), Melanie (Jon), Shauna (Jeff) and Todd (special thanks to Jean H, Michelle R).  She leaves her 5 grandchildren: Megan, Melissa, Derek,  Rory and Kelsey. Linda is survived by her sisters: Bobbi (Roy) and Susan as well as Darlene (Morley), Stuart (Denise), Gordon (Dora).  Linda will be greatly missed by her nephews and nieces: Rusty (predeceased), Rhonda,  Warren, Susie, Dustin, Stacey, Evan, Kristin and Brennan.

She was predeceased by her parents Frank and Ella Whiting as well as a very close family friend, Dale Pannebaker. 

Linda was born in Winnipeg in the midst of WWII.  She was the oldest of 3 girls who were raised in Elmwood.  She met Waverly in 1961 then married in 1963. They lived in Winnipeg where Curtis, Melanie and Shauna were born and then moved to Roland on 5th Street in 1970.  Furthermore,  the family grew to be 6 with Todd and then moving to 1st Street in 1974.  Gardening was her passion!  She was involved in the community volunteering many hours with organizations such as: 4-H, CGIT, Cubs/Scouts, church tea/bake sales, Roland elementary school lunch program, she was a member of Roland Curling Club, she provided meals for hockey tournaments, bonspiels and the Roland Antique Tractor Club.  Linda worked at many restaurants throughout her working years including being employed as a carhop at A&W, Linda's Kitchen, Roland Golf Club, Roland Store and then retiring after 25 yrs in the Homecare field. 

Linda will always be remembered for her cute giggles, her selfless gestures, being a gentle soul, always giving and was ready to help. She was a good listener, a nurturer, her love of dance, her amazing Chinese food, her interest/passion in caring for senior citizens, cooking/baking. 

We would like to thank all of the staff at Carman Memorial Hospital  and Boundary Trails Health Center for all their help, love and support for Linda's care in her untimely illness.  To all family, friends and beyond: your thoughts, prayers and visits will always be remembered and deeply appreciated by the family. 

Celebration of Life will be held at 11:00 am at Roland United Church with Shirley McLaren officiating.  Interment will take place at a later date in Fairview Cemetery, Roland.  

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba, Lung Association of Manitoba or Canadian Diabetes Association
