Linda was a full time homemaker and her world revolved around her children and family. She was the baby of her family and the only one to leave Missouri in order to follow her dream of living in her paradise of Nassau, Bahamas. She was employed by the resort hotel, Emeral Beach and it was in Nassau were she met and married David.
After nearly 10 years and two children later they left The Bahamas; had a short stay in Missouri where child #3 was born and then onto David's home province of Quebec where child #4 was born. For the next 22 years they lived in a lovely home on the side of Mont St. Hilaire and raised their family. Dave retired at the age of 55 after selling his company when they decided to start a new chapter in their lives together and moved to Baden, ON where they enjoyed their retirement.
