Linda Florence Shiers


Born August 8th, 1946, in Shelburne Nova Scotia to Ruth Nickerson and Clifton Stoddard, Linda passed away early October 2 after a brief battle with cancer and is survived by her husband Stephen; sons, Ian, Derek; grandson Mathew, as well as her three sisters Marlene, Loretta and Nancy Ruth. 


Linda was raised in Little Harbour and attended high school in Lockeport. Trading in the quiet life at a young age for the bright lights of Halifax, Montreal and Toronto, Linda experienced big city living working in the heart of Toronto. She had a long career in retail with key roles in Human Resources and Merchandising Management at Hudson’s Bay, Mikasa and Home Depot. After years in Mississauga and Campbellville, the final chapter of life saw her and her husband choosing to return to Nova Scotia's South Shore. Linda loved all things outdoors, her many pets and summers at the family cottage on Lac Des Seize Iles in Quebec. 


Linda will be missed by all and remembered for her smile, laughter, and strength. She will be buried near her mother and father in Woodlawn Cemetery, Little Harbour Nova Scotia.  Arrangements have been entrusted to Sweeny’s Funeral Home, Bridgewater. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Nature Conservancy of Canada or similar outdoor oriented fund.
