It is with great sadness and broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful and precious mother, grandmother,wife, sister, auntie and friend Mary Theresa Linden. Theresa was born on March 3rd, 1946 to the late Roseanna(LeBlanc) and James Benoit In her early years, she worked at Booths Fisheries then met the love of her life. She was a stay-at-home mom for many years caring for her family and a few other children along the way. Theresa spent a few years working for Steamatic and then at the Strait Richmond Hospital. She enjoyed her time there and made some lasting friendships along the way. Our mother also spent many years volunteering in our community. She volunteered for the heart and stroke foundation as well as diabetes, and cancer society. She spent many years as a leader with the Brownie and Girl Guides of Canada and organizing the Terry Fox Run. Our mother also was a volunteer with the Louisdale Lioness Club for many years and she was at the hall and on the phone asking for donations during every funeral helping all the dedicated ladies in our community. There were also fundraisers and community meals and she was always there to lend a helping hand. Her shining moment was receiving the Howard Jeffrey Volunteer of the year award.
