McCurdy, Linda Ann – Age 81, Central Onslow, passed away on December 21, 2020 at home. Born in Debert, she was a daughter of Sidney McCully and Lillian (Geldart). Upon graduating from Acadia University in 1961, Linda married Earl Lindsay McCurdy of Middle Musquodoboit.
Soon after, Linda and Earl were posted to Zweibrücken, West Germany where their first two sons, Dan and Barry, were born. Their third son, Chris, followed soon after when Earl and Linda were posted back to Chicoutimi, QC. As with many military families of the time, the next twenty years were spent moving around Eastern Canada. Linda had her hands full as she raised three boys when Earl was away on lengthy exercises. In many ways, she was the glue that held our family together. Nova Scotia was always home. Her happiest days were spent with Earl, family and dogs at the family cottage on Isaac’s Lake. Mom always kept busy with her knitting, quilting, card play, curling and golfing. Mom was a special person in many lives and she will leave a hole in the hearts of her sons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, Stacey, extended family, friends and neighbours.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Earl; brothers, Everett, Manning, Leonard and Michael; sister, Mae. She is survived by her sons, Dan (Judy Butt), Bonnyville, AB; Barry (Chérie), Cochrane, AB; Chris (Janice), Saint John, NB; grandchildren, Ben, Matthew, Renée, Jessica, Cameron and Cara McCurdy and Sabrina, Gillian Davidson; sisters, Irene Gratto, Priscilla (Eric) Jennings, Donna (Brian) Johnston; sister-in-law, Ruth as well as nephews, nieces, cousins and extended family.
