The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - OBITUARIES -

On Satur­day, June 27, 2015, Linda Paoli Steele, in her 73rd year, peace­fully passed away in the pres­ence of her fam­ily at the Vic­to­ria Gen­eral Hos­pi­tal in Hal­i­fax fol­low­ing a very brief ill­ness. She was born to Si­mon and Louisa (Red­din) Paoli and raised in Char­lot­te­town where she had many ac­com­plish­ments and friends in her school years. Af­ter fresh­man year at St. Dun­stan’s Univer­sity, she be­came a med­i­cal lab­o­ra­tory tech­nol­o­gist and worked briefly in that pro­fes­sion, then chose to be­come a home maker to suc­cess­fully raise three chil­dren. Af­ter re­sum­ing her univer­sity ed­u­ca­tion and earn­ing a Bach­e­lor de­gree from UPEI she worked at the Her­itage Foun­da­tion as Di­rec­tor of Publi­ca­tions, which led to the busi­ness world where she founded the Printed Page Pub­lish­ing Com­pany. She was also a part­ner and for­mer co-owner of Hori­zons Inc, Steele Con­struc­tion, and DesBar­res House in Char­lot­te­town; Shin­ing Wa­ters Coun­try Inn in Cavendish; and Woodleigh Repli­cas in Burling­ton. She re­tired to live qui­etly with her beloved hus­band and best friend of 53 years, Peter, and her cat, Clyde, in Hantsport, N.S., where she spent many happy days ren­o­vat­ing yet another house, paint­ing and gar­den­ing. Her grace, warmth, in­tel­lect, quick smile and wit will be very sadly missed by her hus­band, Peter, and chil­dren, Peter Jr. ( Julie), Lower Sackville, N.S., David (Mar­got), St. Al­bert, AB, and Jen­nifer, Dart­mouth, N.S., along with her sis­ter, Mau­reen (Richard) Me­loche, of Amher­st­burg, ON. Nine lov­ing grand­chil­dren and many close cousins and friends will re­mem­ber her with great fond­ness. Also re­mem­bered by sis­ters-in-law, Irma Arse­nault, Summerside, Ann (Mait) MacIsaac and broth­ers-in-law, Gerald (Mau­reen) and Roy (Donna), all of Char­lot­te­town. At her re­quest, there will be no wake or fu­neral and a pri­vate in­ter­ment of cre­mains will fol­low at a later date. “A heart in love with beauty never grows old.” - Turk­ish Proverb
