Linda Dorothy Morrison

November 13, 1947 — May 11, 2023

Ottawa

It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Linda Dorothy Morrison, age 75, who passed away suddenly with her husband Bob by her side, on Thursday, May11, 2023 at the Ottawa Civic Hospital.

Linda was predeceased by her parents Brenda and Ernest Winch, and sister Shirley Winch.

Linda will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 26 years Robert (Bob) Morrison of Ottawa. Linda is also survived by daughter Jodi Berget and son Jeff Everett who both reside in British Columbia, along with several nieces and nephews, by sisters Denyse Warren and Wendy Winch (Stan McBride) and friends Kathleen McBride (Woody Huizenga) of Ottawa. She will be especially missed by the many friends and acquaintances she met throughout her career and life.

Linda was born in Central Butte, Saskatchewan and after completing high school she left and studied to become a registered nurse. Throughout her time in Saskatchewan she worked in various areas of the province and her career went many directions. In the early 1980's she relocated to Winnipeg, Manitoba where she enjoyed a career in real estate and administration. In the early 1990's she met, fell in love and married Bob. About that time she decided to return to college and become a pharmacy technician. She was very proud of graduating with honors in her class. Linda loved interacting with the customers she met in her new career and the work took her to various pharmacies and hospitals until her retirement in 2007.

After retirement, Linda and Bob started a new chapter in their lives and moved to Ottawa. Linda loved all animals, especially small dogs and it didn't take long for her to adopt a rescue dog, a little shih tzu named Mooky, who immediately became the love of her life. They were inseparable. She liked to sit on the back porch to watch and feed the birds, squirrels, chipmunks and rabbits that wandered into our yard.

Linda loved playing golf and especially enjoyed the weekends she and Bob would go away to play golf. She took immense pleasure in beating Bob, which she did quite often. She loved to watch curling on television and was very knowledgeable of the strategy of the game and the teams. Playing darts and 5-pin bowling were other activities she enjoyed and had won several trophies. Linda also beat Bob in bowling. She loved going for walks, tending to her flower garden, and barbequing. Linda was a fantastic cook. She loved to watch cooking shows and try out the recipes.

Linda loved to travel to scenic places along the St. Lawrence Seaway and thought the road trips back and forth to Winnipeg along the north side of the Great Lakes was one of their most scenic trips. She particularly cherished a road trip she and Bob took to New Brunswick a few years ago. They had also travelled to Florida and Las Vegas several times.

Linda was an amazing person with an enormous heart. She was generous, loyal, compassionate, a strong-willed person with values that she lived her life by every day. Linda was one of a kind, a very giving person. She will be missed tremendously by all those whose lives she touched. In keeping with Linda's wishes there will be no service, her request was to be cremated and have her ashes scattered together with Mooky's ashes at a place which held special memories for her.

There are no words to express our gratitude to the paramedics, doctors and nurses at Ottawa Civic Hospital who provided Linda with the treatment and respect she so deserved. Thank you to Basic Funerals and their wonderful staff for the kindness and professionalism in making this difficult time more manageable for us. Because of Linda's love of dogs, in lieu of flowers we ask that donations be made to the Ottawa Humane Society in Linda's name.

Linda,

You never said I’m leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before I knew it, and only God knew why. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.  In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. In my heart you hold a place that no one could ever fill. It broke my heart to lose you, but you didn’t go alone. For part of me went with you, the day God took you home. I love you more than you could imagine. Until we meet again.

Love forever,

Bob
