With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Linda Popowich (née McPherson), on December 19, 2022, at the Welland Hospital, at the age of 74. Beloved wife of Ronald, for 47 years. Cherished mother of Lana (Derrick) Thompson and Larry (Karen) Lowe. Grandma will always be in the hearts of her grandchildren; Avah and Ellah. Linda will be missed by her brother Doug, sisters-in-law Debbie, Yvette & Ellie, many nieces, nephews, friends, neighbours and extended family. Predeceased by her parents Blake and Evelynn (née Cameron) McPherson, as well as her siblings; Micky, Diane, Bobby, Marianne and Margaret.
Linda loved spending time with friends and family playing cards or a game of bingo. She enjoyed going bowling, baking goodies, puttering in her garden and let’s not forget about dancing.
WELLAND FUNERAL HOME, CREMATION AND RECEPTION CENTRE is honored to be entrusted with caring for Linda and her family.
The angels gathered near your side
So very closes to you
For they knew the pain and suffering
That you were going through
I thought about so many things
As I held tightly to your hand
Oh, how I wished that you were strong
And happy once again
But your eyes were looking homeward
To that place beyond the sky
Where Jesus held His outstretched arms
It was time to say good-bye
I struggled with my selfish thoughts
For I wanted you to stay
So we could walk and talk again
Like we did…just yesterday
But Jesus knew the answer
And I knew you loved Him so
So I gave to you life’s greatest gift
The gift of letting go
