Obituary for Linda "Lin" Cahill

Linda Joy “Lin” Cahill
The community has lost a true friend. Lin passed away at home in the tender care of her husband John.
She touched the lives of many people. Her commitment to community, unique perspective on life and witty sense of humor will be sadly missed. She was truly a wise woman with many accomplishments and great humility. She knew how to make a dream a reality. She always took a very realistic approach to all the projects she became involved with. She had an ability to see the big picture, inspire people and make things happen. In the late 90’s she was a founding member and helped build the Hubbards Waterfront Development Association. Her flag ship project is the Hubbards Farmers’ Market which she started along with several vendors in a Hubbards parking lot in 1995. It is due to her vision, dedication, tenacity and ability to build community that the market grew to be the success that it is today. Last winter a timber frame pavilion was constructed on the Market property and was named in dedication to Lin at the opening on July 1, 2017. She grew up in “The Sault” and as a young person travelled and worked across Canada finally ending up in Nova Scotia . She studied nutrition at Acadia University in Wolfville where she met John and they began their life journey together. She worked as Library Assistant and was head of circulation at Dalhousie Tupper Library until 1998. After leaving that position she worked with John at Hubbards Electric and as a dedicated community volunteer. She loved to cook, entertain, create, sew and had an amazing talent for interior design. She loved to swim in the ocean and had a keen appreciation for the natural world around her. She had an ability to find a spark of humor in almost everything. Lin has a stepson Tobias Cahill and 2 sisters Lianne Graham and Pamela Fisher and their families who live in Ontario. She was predeceased by her mom, dad and grandmother who she loved dearly. A celebration of Lin's life will be held on Thursday Feb 1, 2018 4-7pm at the Ronald A. Walker Funeral Home, Hubbards. Donations in memory of Lin may be made to S.H.A.I.D or The Hubbards Farmers’ Market. Online condolences can be made to www.rawalker.ca
