Goodbye, Linda Curle

Linda Curle
Linda Curle

A loving wife, mother, sister, daughter, granny, friend and teacher – Linda Curle lived all these rolls enthusiastically, sharing the love of her Lord to all who crossed her path in life.

Linda Michelle Curle was born on 21 June 1956, completed her teacher’s training at Edgewood College and married Neville Curle in December 1976. Three children were born from the marriage: Simon, Michael and Michelle. Linda always seemed to have bundles of energy, living life to the fullest, worshipping and praising the Lord all the time. Sadly for those who have to carry on with life without her, Linda lost her four month battle with cancer on 20 October 2015, at their home in Mhlambanyatsi, Manzini, Swaziland. Hearing people talking at a service celebrating her life and seeing what relatives, friends and previous scholars have written on social media about her, certain aspects are clear.

Linda was a very special person who led grown-ups and children alike to the Lord Christ Jesus. She taught, over and above the normal curriculumbased content, a special love for reading and drama. She had a passion for life and seemed to always be smiling and laughing – very contagious … Linda’s love for nature as part of God’s creation became clear in her passionate gardening, her special way of teaching science and the school outings on which she took children. Linda touched lives with joyous love and kindness, she will be sorely missed, but all will cherish lovely memories of her.
