It is with heavy hearts that the family of Linda Diane Harris announce that she has taken her final flight home. Linda passed away at Headwaters Hospital in Orangeville on Thursday, January 26, 2023 at 76 years old. Linda is survived by her husband Tim Harris, son Brett and his wife Stefani, and her ‘two very special grand-boys,’ Connor and Blake. Linda will be greatly missed by her two remaining siblings Carol Small (Darrell) and Glenn Worrell (Maureen) both of New Brunswick. Linda was predeceased by her parents, Frank and Helen Worrell, brother Larry Worrell and sister Annette (Rick) Saunders also from New Brunswick. Linda will be remembered by her many nieces, nephews, close friends and especially by her dog Baillie.
Linda was born in Baillie, New Brunswick in 1946 and wrote in her high school year book that it was her dream to become a flight attendant. She moved to Ottawa after high school where she worked for the Federal Government. It was here that she applied to begin taking courses to achieve her dream. Linda flew for Air Canada for 38 years, flying internationally and completing multiple flights to Europe with her favourite being to Germany. She flew her last flight before retirement with Brett on board. Destination: Germany. Retirement found her travelling ‘up north’ to the cottage she and Tim built on Georgian Bay. For a person who said she did not want to cottage, she sure loved it especially in the most recent years realizing how peaceful, serene and safe it felt there. Ever the hostess, no one arrived at the cottage or to Linda’s home without having a glorious spread of snacks, a home-cooked meal and an array of beverages to pick from. Linda knew how to make everyone feel at home and like they were a part of the family.
‘A flight attendant never passes away, they just fly higher.’
