Obituary – Linda Young


Linda Ann Young, of Owen Sound and formerly of Tiverton, passed away at Chapman House in Owen Sound on Tuesday, April 6, 2021, at the age of 52.
Beloved wife of Dave Mackereth of Owen Sound.
Loving mother of Dylan Young of Tiverton.
Cherished daughter of Doris Young of Tiverton.
Fondly remembered by her siblings: Jim (Rose Marie) Young, Bill (Nancy) Young, Brian (Kathryn) Young, all of Tiverton; Roger (Caroline) Young, of Port Elgin; and June (Laverne) Walker, of Fort MacMurray, Alberta.
Missed by her nieces and nephews: Amy (Andrew) Hallman, Corey Young, Ashley (Christian) Droefke, Devin (Rachael) Young, Caitlin Young (Kevin Ribey), Cristina (Colby) Bellan, Brandie (Steve) Bernard, Ryan (Kaitlyn) Young, Samantha (Jon) Hootnick and Jacob Walker, and by several great-nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
Predeceased by her father Ernest Young (2018), nephew Aaron Walker and great-niece Blayre.
Linda will be fondly remembered for her bubbly personality and caring soul. She loved the annual family gatherings and spending time with her sister (and best friend) when she visited from Alberta. She enjoyed spending Sundays with her Mom and going to church. Linda and Dave married three years ago this July and loved each other very dearly. Her son Dylan was her pride and joy; she was very proud and loved watching him grow into the man he is today.
Linda could always be found cleaning because, like her sparkly personality, she loved nothing more than a sparkling clean home. Her infectious smile, excited giggles and beautiful personality will forever be missed by anyone that has ever known her.

“Perhaps they are not stars in the sky but rather openings where our loved ones shine down to let us know they are happy.”

Visitation was held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home in Kincardine from 2 to 5 p.m. on Sunday, April 11, 2021. A family graveside service to honour Linda’s life took place at her final resting place, Tiverton Cemetery, on Monday, April 12, 2021.
