<div itemprop="description">Linda (Pinto) Fernandes passed away peacefully on August 20, 2020 at the age of 87. <br> <br>Predeceased by her beloved husband Leo, Linda is survived by her four sons, Lester, Luan (Donna), Llewellyn, and Larry (Ellen). She also leaves behind seven grandchildren: Samantha, Marc-André, Rachel, Maryse, Colin, Marie-Hélène and Isabella. Linda is one of four children of parents Helen and Louis Pinto, a sister to brothers Leny (Maggie), Rony (Joyce) and Francis (Dolly). Linda will be remembered as a very dear aunt to many nieces and nephews and a friend to so many others. <br>Linda immigrated to Montreal from Karachi, Pakistan in 1964 along with her children to join her husband Leo, who had established himself as a high school teacher a year earlier. Linda too was an educator and spent many years teaching English at St. Pius X High School in Montreal before becoming a consultant with the English Catholic School Board prior to her retirement. Linda's love of literature, poetry and prose and passion for teaching as well as learning are her legacy. Also, her love of music and her graceful piano playing, ranging from classical works to sing alongs at gatherings of family and friends entertained so many throughout her life. <br>Our heartfelt thanks to Rony and Joyce Pinto for their assistance and support with both Linda and Leo with their medical challenges in recent years. The family is very grateful to the Sunrise Residence, Dollard-des-Ormeaux for the kind care that Linda received over the past year and special thanks to Dorothy Laberge for the personal support and friendship provided. <br>Linda will be missed by many friends and relatives in Canada and abroad. In these challenging times a private family funeral service will be held on Saturday, September 5th, 2020 at 11:45 AM at Rideau Funeral Home, 4275 boul des Sources, Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Quebec. <br> <br> In order to view the funeral service of the late Mrs. Pinto, please copy and paste the following link to your web browser. <br>Important - Please note that due to unforeseen circumstances, you are able to view the complete ceremony, but the audio only starts at the 17th minute of the Service. <br>Our apologies for the inconvenience. <br> <br> <br></div>
