It is with great sadness we announce the passing away of

our mother, Nannee, sister, auntie and friend on Monday, August 21, 2017 at the age of 59.

Sadly, in 2013, Linda was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s

lymphoma. She braved the disease with great courage

and always had a fun and loving spirit, even in the midst of

utmost suffering. She gave love and laughter to everyone

around her and will be extremely missed.

Shannon (Stephan) Veilleux and Anna (Brian) Zukowski; her beloved grandchildren Jane, Kate, Jacklyn and Nolan Veilleux and Julie and Jenna Zukowski; her sister Kathy Garies; her

brothers Mike (Lucy) Garies, Bob (Rachel) Garies, Jim

(Lorraine) Garies and John (Elaine) Garies; her former

husband Roger Legault and many cousins, nieces and

nephews. She was predeceased by her parents George

and Anne Garies; her two infant sisters Mary and Michelle Garies.
