Linda Jonah

Theresa “Linda” Jonah of Ottawa, Ontario passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 6 at her home in Ottawa. 

Linda was born in Fredericton, NB on February 23, 1954, daughter of the late Amos and Edna (Beek) Pratt.

She is survived by her daughter Lisa (Omere) Gagne of Ottawa, Ontario. She was a proud grandmother of Alexandra O’Shaughnessy and Dawson Gagne. Both of Ottawa, Ontario.

Linda is predeceased by her husband Robert Jonah, son Dwayne O’Shaughnessy and brother George Pratt.  She will be missed by many family and friends.

Although Linda’s final residence was in Ottawa so she could be close to her grandkids, she always called Doaktown, New Brunswick,  her home. Her family and friends of that beautiful community have always been dear to her heart and she thought of you all daily.


Linda’s family would like to thank the Meals on Wheels volunteers for the kindness and compassion they showed to Linda during the last 6 months. Their daily visit was the highlight of her day, during a time when visits were limited.


For those who wish, memorial donations can be made to Meals on Wheels, Ottawa. 

A memorial service will be held in Doaktown later in the year when the current restrictions allow.  Arrangements are in the compassionate care of Cole Funeral Services, Ottawa, Ontario.
