With great sadness, we announce that Linda Daigle, 56, of Labrador City, NL, passed away peacefully, surrounded by family on October 10, 2023, after a 3 year battle with Breast Cancer.
Linda was born on September 27, 1967, in Gander, NL, and was raised on the island of St.Brendan’s along with her 10 siblings, in a very close-knit, traditional Newfoundland family. After college, Linda spent the next 33 years of her life in Labrador City, with her husband, Shawn, raising her family and laying down roots. She devoted her life to her children, grandchildren, husband, friends, and neighbours, and was well-known by all for her kind heart and generosity. Even through her illness, Linda still made her grandchildren her top priority, teaching them lessons in strength that will last a lifetime. She was a very selfless, loving, and generous person who would always choose going without, if it meant helping someone in need. These qualities are what will be missed and remembered most by those closest to her.
Left to mourn with fond and loving memories are her husband Shawn; daughters Ginette and Melanie (Justin); grandchildren Tyler, Adam, and Greyson; brothers Gary and Nick Jr.(Deanne); sisters Madonna (Ig), Shirley (Terry), Maureen, Patricia, Rita (David), Pauline (Steve), and Lori Ann (Bill); and brother-in-law Mike Byrne (Cynthia). Predeceased by her mother Rita Bridgeman (White); father Nicholas Bridgeman; sister Cynthia Byrne; brother-in-laws Wilfred Ryan, Cyril Jr Aylward, Jan Daigle; and mother-in-law Bernadette Daigle. Linda also leaves to mourn a very large circle of nieces, nephews, friends, her special pet companion Halo, and a very special neighbour, Deanne, who was an incredible friend during her battle, providing encouragement, support, companionship, and stopped by numerous times with surprises just to brighten her day. Her kindness will never be forgotten.
Friends may visit Temple’s funeral home on Thursday, October 12 from 7:00pm-9:00pm. Funeral services will be held at the Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church, in Wabush, on Friday, October 13 at 2:00pm, interment to follow at the Wabush Cemetery.
The family would like to extend their appreciation and thanks to the nurses and staff at both the Labrador West Health Center as well as the Oncology Unit in the HSC for the amazing care and compassion that was shown during her time spent in both facilities. As expressions of sympathy, donations can be made to her grandchildren’s education funds, namely Tyler, who is graduating high school this year and will be attending college next fall. Linda was very excited to see him graduate this year and wanted more than anything to be a part of it.
