Linda Henton, a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and sister, passed away peacefully in her sleep at Wiigwas Elder and Senior Care Home on July 16, 2023. Linda, born on August 17, 1945, was surrounded by her loved ones until her last moments. She leaves behind her husband Donnie Henton, daughter Lana Henton-Sullivan (Gary) Sullivan, grandsons Noah and Jake Sullivan, and siblings June Martin, Randy Martin, and Thomas Martin (Pamela). Linda was also cherished by her numerous nieces and nephews.

In her journey beyond, Linda reunites with her late parents, Ben Martin and Dorothy Tetroe, as well as her sisters Kathy Burns and Darlene Martin, and brother Donny Martin. She will also be warmly welcomed by many close friends whose lives she touched.

Linda’s roots were deeply planted in Kenora, where she grew up with her six siblings on the Ritchie Road. After marrying Donnie, they started their own chapter on the James Road, creating countless cherished memories with family and friends. Linda delighted in fishing adventures with Donnie on Black Sturgeon and enjoyed camping trips on 314 Road and Jones Road with loved ones, including nephew Marty Midgard and his wife Wendy Midgard. Exploring the wilderness and engaging in various outdoor activities with Donnie brought her endless joy. Above all, Linda’s greatest focus in life was always her family. She dedicated herself to raising her daughter Lana and later found immense happiness in spending time with her grandsons, Noah and Jake, who were the light of her life.

Linda’s medical journey began in September 2017 when she was diagnosed with Dementia. She resided at Pinecrest Home for the Aged from February 2018 until December 2018 when she was transferred to Hogarth in Thunder Bay. Linda spent her last 3.5 years at Wiigwas, where she received exceptional care. In February 2022, Linda faced the additional challenge of being diagnosed with CHF, which complicated her medical condition.

The Henton family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the compassionate and dedicated staff at Wiigwas Elder and Senior Care Home, particularly Haydee, Ryan, Marie, Martha, ‘Toni’, Debbie Bye, Theresa Wilson, and Brandi Milko NP. They also extend their appreciation to Cory and the staff at Brown Funeral Home & Cremation Centre for their care and support during this difficult time. A celebration of life in honor of Linda will be held at a later date. Fond memories and messages of sympathy can be shared on the Henton family’s page at http://www.brownfuneralhomekenora.com.
