Linda Anne Powell was the youngest of 5 children. She single-handedly raised two children, Holly and Jamie Powell, and was a mother figure to her nephew, Ashley Powell. She also leaves behind her beloved dog, Scruffie.
Linda was known for passionately speaking her mind and standing up for others; she battled through long term back pain and eye problems, but remained one of the most resilient, courageous and compassionate souls. Linda lifted the spirits of everyone around her and lit up every room with her humour, kindness, support, safety and love, and her passing has left a hole which can not be filled by anyone else.
