In loving memory, and celebration of the life of Linda Eileen Mende (nee Hipkin), who passed away just after bedtime on Sunday, April 4, 2021. We are grateful to celebrate and remember Linda as a woman who loved unconditionally all her family, friends, students, and colleagues as she spent over 40 years as an educator in the Sudbury Rainbow School District. Linda was an amazingly avid and dedicated hockey mom, literally living in local hockey rinks supporting her sons and all kids and parents living the Northern Ontario hockey life. Linda is survived by her husband Richard, her three sons: Barry, David and Howie and their families, as well as her brothers Alan and Joe Hipkin and their families. Folks interested in leaving a donation are asked to direct funds to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada (1-800-361-2985 | email@example.com). Memories, stories, condolences, or celebrations of Linda’s life may be posted on the Ranger’s Cremation and Burial Services website.
