It is with great sadness that the family of Linda Diane Warren, 66 of Blue Rocks, announces her passing on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at Fishermen’s Memorial Hospital, Lunenburg.
Born in Lunenburg, she was the daughter of the late Robert Daniel and Frances Shirley (Tanner) MacDonald.
In her earlier years, Linda stayed at home to raise her children. Linda always enjoyed taking care of others so, as her children got older, she decided to start taking care of numerous elderly folks in her community by cooking, cleaning and running errands for them. She also worked at the Knot Pub for over 20 years until her illness no longer made that possible.
To those that knew Linda, she enjoyed the simple pleasures of life and found the greatest enjoyment spending time with her family who will miss her dearly.
