Obituary for Linda Hensch

Linda  Hensch
Linda Gail Hensch, 68, passed away on Tuesday night, at 10:25 p.m. at Milton District Hospital. What she would want you to know, was there was a beautiful, full moon outside her window, and she went on her own terms, which was, and always will be, the definition of Linda. Linda was the beloved wife of Ken, mother of Jodi and Tammi, sister to Dianne and Karen and sister-in-law to Jean. She will be remembered fondly and with pancakes in mind, as Oma, by her two grandchildren Travis and Maeve. The family would like to extend their thanks and gratitude to her family doctor Sam Schachter, and all of the health care professionals at Milton District Hospital. Linda was a teacher-librarian, who cultivated a love of reading in hundreds of lucky kids. As a book-lover, Linda leant books whenever she had an opportunity; her own personal library having more circulation than the public one. As an educator, Mom instilled in students the drive to achieve whatever their goal was in life. In fact, I was lucky as her daughter to be a part of this same tutelage. My Mom loved playing games, from golf to pool to bridge. Her competitors knew her for her keen mind, bold moves and drive to win. Her family knew to keep their cards concealed if they sat in front of a window. Her attitude, was if the reflection showed the cards, 'that's was your loss, not hers'. Travelling was a passion shared by Ken and Linda. Their journeys led them from China to Turkey, Tanzania, Costa Rica and beyond. Ken and Linda stayed at a hotel in Cuzco, listening to mangos bang off the roof, which sounded like guns. The guns were saved for Bolivia however, where Lind and Ken needed to backpack out of Bolivia on Inca trails during a national strike. Linda, I was blessed to be your daughter, and to have you in my life. Anyone who knew you, would have been touched by you and could say the same thing. Love you, Mom.
