Linda Marie Marshall (née: MacInnis) aged 77 years of Moose Jaw, SK, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, April 19th, 2023 at Crescent Park Retirement Villa after a long battle with dementia.
Linda was born on December 8th, 1945 in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia to Mildred (Rudderham) and Russell MacInnis, the middle of 5 children. She was raised in Cape Breton where she developed a passion for music. Linda took singing lessons as a child and in high school joined the Beinn Bhreagh Chorale singing group which traveled around Cape Breton. The Group recorded a record which they sold locally. Linda moved from Nova Scotia to Moose Jaw in 1972 where her love of music continued. She enjoyed watching musicals and learned to play the clarinet. She joined the Moose Jaw City Band and Military Band, in which she travelled around playing music at different events and in different cities. Later she joined a choir with the Zion United Church of Moose Jaw.
Linda took an administrative course in Nova Scotia and worked in Halifax for a few years before moving to Moose Jaw, where she took up employment in law offices. Later she worked for the Moose Jaw Public School Board of Education, from which she retired in 2002.
Linda met her husband, Arthur Marshall, in Moose Jaw in 1973 and was married in 1975. They liked to travel to places like Las Vegas, Mexico, Arizona, and across Canada. They had one daughter and two grandchildren.

My deepest condolences to Art and Kari as well as Ricky, Rollie, Dean and Judy. It had been many years since I had seen Linda but I have very fond memories. She’s smiling down on all of you now.
Your love and laughter will be truly missed my dear sister.
Linda was such a great friend!! She didn’t judge people and always just wanted to enjoy life! Rest in peace Linda! I am sure the angels’ choir will definitely have you join in!!
My deepest sympathy to all of Linda’s family.
My younger sister, Linda, was a happy, cheerful, person. Music was her passion and hobby. She had unique ways of expressing herself.. as a child…she had her elbow…and…her otherbow! I can hear her voice as I write this. I can hear Mom say..Linda! What are you doing here!? I will miss her and will remember her always. Her family was her greatest joy. To be remembered is to live forever.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time. The kids remember her fondly from their school days.
My Dear Linda…Memories of our Friendship I will Treasure always in my Heart ❤ ❤
I loved my aunt Linda for her joy, her humour & witty sarcasm, her gentle spirit, and caring heart. I felt a special bond with her every time we would get together at family reunions because my mother would frequently say the wrong name when addressing either of us. We became … “Paulinda”. God bless.
I am so very sorry Kari to read about the loss of your mom.
I worked with Linda in the school system for a few years, and we had so so much fun! She was spontaneous, happy and just a joy to be with! She had that twinkle from Nova Scotia in her eye, that kept you wondering what was going to come next. Enjoyed working with her so much, and my condolences to her family on her passing.
Hope you all find comfort in knowing that Linda the one you loved so much is now peacefully at rest with God.
She was a wonderful friend for Marg and me. We great times at church and going for breakfast and coffee.
