Sept 8, 1956 – February 13, 2023
It is with heartfelt sadness that we, the family, announce the passing of Linda Marguerite Fudge, beloved mother, grandmother, aunt, and loving sister.
Born September 8, 1956, in Sydney and raised in Louisbourg, Linda was the eldest daughter of the late Rita and Harold Fudge.
Linda was one of the first female officers to graduate from the Canadian Coast Guard College in the 1970’s doing so with honors as a navigator. Linda left the Coast Guard to raise her two sons, only to return in later years as a Coast Guard duty officer. From there she was employed by Canada Post and eventually leaving due to her illness.
Linda is survived by her two sons, Daniel (Sally) and Michael; grandchildren, London, Kia, Matthew, and Judah, who were Linda’s pride and joy; the children’s mother, Taylor; loving sister and best friend, Marilyn (Freddie) Brace; her only, nephew, Chris (Robyn) and grand-neice, Morgan (Patrick).
A special thank you to Dr. Ann Frances D’intino, Dr Saneea Abboud, Dr John Ritter as well as all the special nurses and staff at Hospice Cape Breton and An Cala unit at the Cape Breton Regional Hospital.
In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Linda may be made to Hospice Cape Breton or the SPCA.
At Linda’s request there will be no funeral services. Interment will take place at St. Bartholomew’s cemetery with prayers by Pastor Sheldon Chant at a later date.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to the care and direction of Pier Community Funeral Home.
