Linda Leslie White

Born ~ December 9, 1953
Date of Passing ~ May 6, 2024

The family of Linda Leslie White is saddened to announce her death on May 6, 2024, at the age of 70. Linda was predeceased by her parents, David and Alice Proctor. She is survived by her husband of 36 years, Dave, her daughter Kathryn Kiddell, stepson Carl White (Shawna), and their children Logan and Vance. She also leaves her sister Jacqueline Ingrilli (Frank), Jacqueline’s children Bernadette Crockett (Glenn), David Wentland (Jennifer), Joseph Ingrilli (Rocio) and Alicia Cheeseman (Ben), as well as many loved great nieces and nephews.

Linda lived most of her life in Winnipeg, graduating from the University of Manitoba with a Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Education, and Master of Arts in History. With an insatiable curiosity for knowledge, she constantly sought to understand the world around her. From the pages of books to the depths of online resources, Linda embraced learning with fervour.

Linda had a love of history; she kept the traditions and stories of the family alive and was always quick to tell a story. This love of history also shaped her professional life. She spent over 20 years working in archives and records management in Winnipeg and Ottawa. Most recently, she worked as an investigator for the Manitoba Ombudsman, Access & Privacy Division from 2013 to her retirement in 2021.

Linda had many passions and hobbies in her life, perhaps none as intently as photography and travel. Linda found joy in immersing herself in the world’s wonders. Her photographs not only documented her and Dave’s journeys but also her love for life and discovery. Linda always shared her passion for photography with her family. She could always be seen at family gatherings with her camera, capturing moments that she would share in her annual family newsletter or calendar. Linda also loved knitting and crochet, embroidery, and sewing. A true crafter, she leaves many unfinished craft projects and bins of yarn.

Linda wanted to thank the nurses of CancerCare Manitoba treatment, who were so kind, and Dr. Rebekah Rittberg for her compassion and understanding. She always listened and never rushed. It was appreciated. Thank you also to Devarshi of Silver Heights Pharmacy, who consistently went above and beyond and made a hard time that much easier.

Interment has taken place. The family invites you to join them on June 17, 2024, at 1:30 p.m. for a memorial service at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Winnipeg, 603 Wellington Crescent. The family is grateful for the services of Hunter Funerals and Dying to Help End of Life Services during this time.

We gratefully decline flowers and ask that, instead, you make a donation to Médecins Sans Frontiers or a charity of your choice.
