Linda Gayle Forsythe – 72, Truro. It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Linda Gayle Forsythe on Thursday, March 14, 2024. Linda was born in Moncton, New Brunswick and passed peacefully at her Truro home surrounded by her loved ones. 

Linda was many things to many people, always there to offer help whenever and wherever needed, both to friends and strangers alike.  

During her lifetime, Linda had a variety of jobs from banking to management, but none were as important to her as her role as wife, mother and grandmother.   

Linda is survived by Philip, her husband of 54 years; daughters, Michele (Jeff Knowles) Forsythe and Tammy (Gary Richard) MacKenzie; grandchildren, Michael MacKenzie, Emily Lycett and Andrew Lycett; great-granddaughter, Bailey Harris MacKenzie; nieces and nephews, Denise Forsythe, Brian Nutter, Sean Nutter, Jennifer Nutter, Tim Terry; brother-in-law, Gary (Elaine) Forsythe; many great-nieces and great-nephews.

Linda was predeceased by her mother, Harriet "Sally" Nutter; brother, Kirk (Sharon) Nutter, sister, Janice (Glen) Terry; brother-in-law, John Forsythe; nephew, Kevin Forsythe.  

There will be no service in keeping with Linda’s wishes. In lieu of cards or flowers, the family asks that you kindly donate to a charity of your choosing in keeping with Linda’s selfless generosity. 

Arrangements have been entrusted to Mattatall – Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. Tributes, words of comfort and memories of Linda may be shared at:
