She was pre-deceased by her parents, Joseph, and Rosella George; husband, Lorne Doll; brother and sister-in-law, John, and Ann Lynn George; and nephew, Jayson George.
Linda was born September 28, 1950, to Rosella and Joseph George in Eatonia, SK where she grew up attending school, babysitting, and figure skating. She was even Carnival Queen in 1965. She met and married Lorne Doll in 1971. They moved just west of Dodsland to the old Pool House just south of his parents’ home. Linda was very involved with the farming activities and learned all about gardening, canning, raising pigs, chickens, turkeys, and cattle. They raised four children on the farm too. They welcomed their first child in January 1973, a daughter, Jennifer. Their second daughter, Janice, arrived in March 1974. A third daughter, Darlene came in July 1977. And finally in December 1978, they welcomed their son, Darcy.
Life was never dull. Depending on the time of year there was always something going on. During the spring and fall, she was very involved in the farming activities. She managed to fit in running with the kids for school and extra-curricular activities, such as 4-H (where she was assistant leader to the Craft Club), and football practice and games. Winters were often filled with figure skating (which she taught for a few years), and more 4-H. Summer of course was tending to the garden, and as every mother knows, trying to keep the kids busy. Throughout all of this, Linda remained very active in the LWML.
The kids grew up and moved away from home. That started the expansion of the family. First she gained a son-in-law, Sheldon, who married their oldest daughter Jennifer in August of 1996. In January 1997, Darcy met Deanna who had a son, Tyler. Another grandchild, Joshua, arrived in April 1997 to their daughter Janice. In a matter of a few months, she was blessed with 2 grandsons. But soon another grandchild was on the way. Another boy, Cory, was welcomed in March 2001 and a precious granddaughter, Catherine, arrived in September 2002. Darlene met Tom in May 2020. Cory met Olivia in August 2021 and they will be wed this May!
Lorne passed away in 2013 and she moved to Weyburn, SK with her oldest daughter and son-in-law until she moved to Edmonton, AB in 2021 with her daughter, Darlene. She took sick in January and passed away 6 weeks later with loved ones by her side.
Funeral arrangements were entrusted to Kindersley/Kerrobert Community Funeral Home. The service was held Monday, March 14th, 2022, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church in Luseland, SK at 1:00pm and officiated by Rev. Robert Gout. Pallbearers were Clint George, Joey George, Kevin Weenk, Charles Doll, Derek Doll, and Shaun Loeppky. Honourary pallbearers were Jayson George and all that shared in her life. Luncheon immediately followed. Internment was after that at the Dodsland-Druid Cemetery just outside of Dodsland, SK.
