Obituary of Linda Louise Alley
It is with heavy hearts, that the family of Linda Louise (Hebb) Alley, announce her sudden passing. It occurred at her home in New Minas, NS at the age of 68, on January 31. Linda was predeceased by her parents Louis and Edith (Brooks) Hebb, siblings; Leroy, Paul and Katie and her husband Stephen Alley. She is survived by her children John (Jill) and Lynne (Paul). Also, by two grandchildren, Grant and Clark, furry granddaughter Ruby and loyal furry companion, Precious.
Linda was born in Middleton,NS but was raised in Upper Granville. After graduating high school in Bridgetown in 1974, she began a lengthy career in helping and serving other's needs in nursing homes and private care. Helping people was her passion which she did until her final days. She also held various jobs in the agriculture industry along the way.
Linda was a survivor in every sense of the word. She endured many hardships in her life but always battled with the utmost grace and smile to match. She was a force to be reckoned with. A personality that filled the room, an infectious laugh, the biggest bear hugs and a sense of humor that was second to none. Her physical and mental toughness along with an infinite love for her family, friends and fellow humans are qualities that will be sorely missed but carried on through her legacy.
Linda had a "salt of the earth" personality which built a foundation for her to enjoy life's simple pleasures. Often referring to material possessions as "stuff". The little things were the big things to her. She loved chats over coffee, bingo nights/trips with friends, picking berries on a summer day and gardening. She looked forward to trips down south with friends. The beach and the heat was her element and where she was happiest.
Linda will leave a void in many lives and hearts that can not be filled. However, her spirit will live on in those who were lucky enough to know her. She seemed to be everybody's best friend.
In lieu of flowers, a donation can be made to a local SPCA, Valley Hospice or Chrysalis House. Even a good deed or helpful action to someone in need would make her equally as happy.
There will be no visitation or funeral upon her request. A private burial ceremony will be held at a later date.
