ALBION – Linda Ann “Frema” Furness, 81, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, October 22, 2022.

She was born April 15, 1941 to Marion G. (Fieritz) and Edward L. Fisher.  Linda worked as a secretary at the Albion Correctional Facility and retired in 1996 after 38 years of service. She valued every individual friendship she made there over the years.

Linda was a loving and compassionate person, who always wore a beautiful smile and enjoyed each day she was given on this earth. Her love, passion, and devotion were a testament to those she encountered.  Linda was a beloved daughter, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and sister who adored her family and enjoyed every cherished moment spent with them, as well as the family pets. Her friends always held a special place in her heart as well.

Linda was predeceased by her parents and brother, Norman Fisher.

Linda is survived by her loving daughters, Bonnie Eaton and Susan Thomas; grandchildren, Alisha (Jason) Schwarzott and Jonathan Thomas; great-grand children, Emma (James) Fuller and Andrew Schwarzott. In addition, her nieces and nephews and extended family, David Thiessen, Michael Janus, and Aaron Thomas.
