GORING: After a lengthy battle with Alzheimer’s over a 13 year period, Linda Goring (née Carter) passed away peacefully with family at her side in her home on Sunday, December 4, 2022 at the age of 77 years. Born September 4, 1945, Linda later moved with her Mom and brother to Lenore, Manitoba where she went to school both there and in Virden. She met her husband Dennis at a dance in Kenton, Manitoba, and they were married in Lenore in 1965. Linda and Dennis lived and farmed on the family farm all of her life with unconditional love and caring by her devoted husband until her passing. Family was always the first priority for Linda. Sunday suppers, reunions, get-togethers for no reason other than to be together, as well as special occasions were high on her list. Always lending a hand to family and friends alike, she also found the best in every situation and person she encountered. With her kids, she was mother, teacher, mentor, and most of all friend - several wrestling matches with her and her son and daughter were the norm, along with teasing and tickling. Linda was an amazing mother with a deep love for education, but she was not only a Mom and teacher to her children, she wanted to share her passion. In 1988 she began her career assisting teaching children in Kindergarten to Grade Four at Deerboine Colony school until her diagnosis with Alzheimer’s in 2010, leaving her mark on many children who even into adulthood continued to visit her at home. Linda was predeceased by her mother Nora Stanley, step-father Jack Stanley, brothers: Edward, Wilfred, Jerry and Raymond, as well as sisters: Susan and Deanna. She is survived by her loving husband Dennis, son Colin (Katherine French), daughter Lori (Grant) Ash, as well as grandchildren: Liam (Stephanie) Goring, Kevin Goring, Kiara Goring, Cassidy Ash and Jocelyn Ash and great-grandson Greyson. Linda is also survived by her sisters Sandra Takvam neé Stanley (Harvey) and Candice Boxshall neé Stanley (Al). Linda’s family would like to thank Dr. Dhaliwal, Rivers Palliative Care, Rivers Home Care, and Riverdale Health Centre for all the compassionate care and incredible support over the years. Thank you also to Brockie Donovan for their assistance and guidance. A Celebration of Linda’s Life for family and close friends will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations can be made to Palliative Care c/o Riverdale Health Centre, 512 Quebec Street, Rivers, Manitoba, R0K 1X0.
Your smile and presence that always lit up a room, and the love that spread from it will be missed but never forgotten. Love you always.
