Linda Street

Did you ever know that you’re my hero
And everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle
For you are the wind beneath my wings

Linda Street, a lifelong resident of CK passed away on Sunday, December 12, 2021 in her 78th year at Chatham-Kent Health Alliance. Daughter of the late Joseph St. John and Lulu Suitor (Percy).

She worked at the Bank of Montreal as an account manager on King St for 37 years. After retirement Linda enjoyed bingo, going to yard sales and doing crosswords. She also loved spending time with her grandchildren, tending her beautiful gardens, going to auctions, day trips and shopping. Linda also opened her backyard to the neighbourhood squirrels and stray cats feeding them and enjoying their company. Linda’s family will have a private service for her at a later date.

I have tons of great memories at the apartment on Victoria and the many summers spent in the pool on Michener. I was always welcome at her home and she was happy to beat you at Yahtzee or any other card game.
    I know she was very proud of each of you, especially Shelley who I am sure was her best friend . My heart is broken and I wish could be there to give you a hug. My thoughts are with you, i know you will get through this. Love Karen and family
