NATION WHYTE, Linda (née Lewis) Nation Whyte -
March 2, 1942 - September 23, 2023
Passed away peacefully, sleeping beside her loving husband, Tom, of almost 60 years (October 5, 1963).
Daughter of Geoffrey and Eleanor Lewis; much-loved by her children, Peter (Lana) and Alison (Robert); and her grandchildren, Sophie, Emily, Colin and Duncan.
Linda studied nursing, graduating from the Wellesley School of Nursing in 1963 and practicing before raising her children.
Linda worked alongside her husband in the family business, creating and providing instructional resources for Canadian schools. Linda loved her summers with the family on Lake Temagami, where she was able to spoil family and friends with her incredible hospitality and cooking.
An avid walker, exercise enthusiast and always keeping an eye on nutrition (must have three different colours of vegetable on the plate), Linda kept us on our toes and Tom on the move. Linda loved to sing and was a long-time member of the Harmony Singers. Song and the choir at her church, St. George's on-the-Hill brought her great joy.
Her involvement at St. George's on-the-Hill gave her great spiritual comfort and allowed her to fulfill her natural propensity for helping others.
A service of remembrance will be held at St. George's on-the-Hill Anglican Church, 4600 Dundas St. West, Toronto, ON M9A 1A5, on Thursday, September 28, 2023, at 11:00 a.m., with a visitation in the church one hour prior.
In lieu of flowers, donation to Sleeping Children Around the World would be appreciated.
