BURKE, Linda Mary
December 14, 1934 – May 14, 2022
Passed away peacefully at the The John Parrott Centre in Napanee on May 14th. Predeceased by her husband Dr. Nathy Felim (Felix) Burke and her son Kevin. Dear mother to Duncan (Kim) of Napanee, Edmund (Annique) of Mont Tremblant, Qc and Neil (Mélanie) of Wakefield, Qc. Beloved Nana to Jennifer Carr (Ryan), Kevin (Sharla), Shannon, Felix, Émely, Émile, Charlotte and William. Great grandmother to Connor and Brady Carr. Originally from Southend-on-Sea, UK, Linda spent more than 60 years in Napanee, with most of that time on the Long Reach. An active community volunteer, she put her nursing training to good use at the Napanee and Hotel Dieu hospitals. On Sunday mornings, she could be found bringing communion to those who could not attend mass. A talented potter and fibre artist, she was a highly regarded member of the region’s quilting and embroidery guilds and transferred her passion to many students. Any free time was spent in her award-winning garden. Thank you to the staff of the Briargate, the Kingston General Hospital and the John Parrot Centre for their excellent care. As per Linda’s wishes, a funeral mass will be celebrated at St. Patrick’s Church in Napanee at 11 am on Friday May 20th. Interment Patrick’s Cemetery. Arrangements in the care of Wartman Funeral Home – Napanee. Friends and family desiring may contribute to the L&A Hospital Foundation in memory of Linda.
