Obituary for Linda Sharron Ladyman

Linda Sharron Ladyman

April 10th, 1942 – Feb 20th, 2022

Passed away peacefully under the tremendous care of the staff at The Victoria General Hospital. She was an incredibly strong woman who battled through a number of health issues towards the end of her life with no complaints.

Linda is survived by her husband of 57 years Larry, sons Bill (Lori, grandkids, David, Mathew, Michael), Blair (Nicholas and Sage) and her sisters, Marilyn (Austin), Nancy (Kurt) and Pat.

Linda grew up in a farming family in Belmont, Manitoba. She was an exceptional student, skipping grades in the early years before moving to Winnipeg to attend the University of Manitoba at the age of sixteen. Linda competed a Masters of Social Work and worked in the field for several years before starting a family and staying home to raise her sons. Once her boys were (arguably) able to manage around the home on their own she entered the Certified General Accounting program, graduated, and started her own accounting business overseeing the books for several local businesses, all while continuing to manage the Ladyman household.

Linda was a great seamstress and made an exquisite graduation dress for her sister. She enjoyed cooking and cherished their monthly dinners with the “Gourmet Club”. She was always physically active, a member of the Winnipeg Lawn Tennis Club and enjoyed walking in a club for many years, trekking during her travels and doing yoga. In retirement she stayed close to her neighbours, catching up with them on her daily walks around Wildwood Park. When joined by visitors she was always happy to share the trails that she walked and the details of the Park with them.

She was an avid reader and belonged to a reading club for many years. She had played the piano as a child and took it up again when she retired. She was a talented, creative, and witty writer.

Linda also craved travel. She visited China, South Africa, Equator, Peru (Machu Pichu), the Galapagos, New Zealand, Tibet, Australia, Hawaii, Palm Springs, Scottsdale, Mexico, Thailand, trekked in the Himalayas and cruised the Danube. She was a sports fan, particularly soccer, and travelled to England to see Manchester United play at Old Trafford. She also made numerous trips to watch her children and grandchildren compete across Canada, the United States and most recently Italy.

Linda was warm, empathetic and compassionate. She loved and was proud of her family, managing a very busy household when her sons were at home and always happy to help out with the grandkids when they came along.

When her boys were growing up she was a huge part of the teams they played on. She volunteered as team managers and as the Treasurer of the Winnipeg Youth Soccer Association. She was a fan of competition, never missed her sons or her grandkids games and will be missed on the sidelines.

In lieu of flowers donations can be sent to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Manitoba. A small celebration of life will be held in the spring or early summer for family and close friends. We will miss your laugh, your smile and your love Mom. RIP.
