Linda Dawn Muirhead
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Linda on January 14, 2023. Linda passed away peacefully in her sleep after a courageous battle with cancer. Linda was predeceased by her infant daughter Kelly, parents Don and Ruth Muirhead, brother Bill, and Step-Mother Shirley McMillan. Left to cherish her memory are her daughter Sally Gerelus (Corey) of Florida, son Kevin Gerelus and grandsons Tyson and Tyler of Grande Prairie Alberta, sister Lori (Chris) Wren and their children Christopher (Cailee), Lisa, and Michelle (Paul), and great niece and nephew Kolby and Brody, as well as Bill’s family in Alberta. Linda was born on April 16, 1955 in Saskatoon. In 1962 the family returned to Winnipeg. Linda grew up in St. James and attended Silver Heights Collegiate. Linda lived in a handful of cities before moving to Grande Prairie Alberta in 2006 to be with her son and grandsons. Linda had a personality that could light up any room. She was warm, caring, generous, and made everyone feel important and loved. Her sense of humor was second to none. Linda made friends everywhere she went. She made many friends that became like family. Linda loved cooking, baking, crocheting, and was a voracious reader. But the lights of Linda’s life were Sally, Kevin, Tyson and Tyler who will miss her tremendously. Linda faced a number of challenges, and met each one with a full heart, positive mindset, and her head held high. Even on her most challenging days, she was making sure those around her were taken care of. The family would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude for the love and care shown to Linda in her final months. Thank you to Jordan, Jen, Nicki and the entire staff at Prairie Lake Hospice. As well, our eternal gratitude to special friends Cindy, Ann, Danielle, Britta and Jancy for their love, unwavering support and friendship.
Mom/Linda, your love and laughter will live in our hearts forever. You were our angel on earth, and we miss you. xoxo
