Linda R. Green

MONTGOMERY CENTER – Linda R. Green, age 67, passed away on Wednesday, July 28, 2020, at her home in Alpine Haven.

She was born on June 20, 1953 in Hamilton, Ontario to the late John and Audrey (Smyth) Green.

The consummate professional, Linda was great at everything she set her mind to. She was an accomplished accountant in Canada and the United States, and also co-owned and operated a successful consulting company. Linda was always thinking about the needs of others, and constantly putting them before her own. She was proud to be a member of her community, and she would relentlessly support any local cause – that includes taking knitting lessons! She served at several local events, and especially enjoyed being the past Commodore of the Pointe-Claire Yacht Club. One of Linda’s favorite activities was taking her beloved therapy dog, Megan, to the Montgomery School so the children could read to her. Her life’s work was truly that of service to others.

Linda’s life-long partner is Jim Townsend. They have been together for about 40 years, and may possibly hold the record for the longest engagement at 30 years. They were married on April 5, 2014 at a surprise wedding for their closest friends. Linda and Jim’s life was split between the city of Montreal and the mountains of Montgomery. They made the perfect pair, Jim had a knack for dreaming up crazy ideas, and Linda had a knack for making them a reality.

She will be greatly missed by her husband, Jim Townsend of Montgomery Center; her sister, Diane Green of Ontario; and cousins, Lily Ann Coleman of London, and Joan Fisher of Florida. 

Linda was predeceased by her parents.

In keeping with Linda’s wishes, there will be no public services.

For those who wish, donations can be made in Linda’s name to your local charity. Some of her favorites in Montgomery included the Montgomery Library, the Food Bank, and the Parks & Recreation Department.
