<div itemprop="description">Emma Linda Thomas (Nee Spalding) - Passed away peacefully on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 at the Eatonville Nursing Home. <br /> <br />Emma was born in beautiful Jamaica on Tuesday, September 21, 1914, the second child of Carmenta Boyne. She is predeceased by a brother, Samuel Lawes, and a sister. <br /> <br />She moved to Cuba with her mother and step-father, Samuel Boyne, and spent her formative years there, learning to speak Spanish in the process which she still spoke up until recently. <br /> <br />She returned to Jamaica and plied her trade as a Seamstress. Eventually she met and married Percival (Percy) Thomas. She had eight (8) children: Louis (Ascott), Del (Delphina), Ken (Kenneth), Wills (William), Allan (Norman), Rose, Noel and Andrew. She also had four step-children &ndash; Ceylema (Ceylem), Cynthia (Deceased), Roy and Norman Robert. Louis, Wills and Noel preceded her in death. Her husband, Percy, also predeceased her in 1991. <br /> <br />Emma Linda migrated from Jamaica to Canada in 1992. <br /> <br />Linda, as most people called her, was a jovial peace loving lady. She was never involved in any loud arguments (Cass-Cass). She always took great care of her flock of children, never letting them be in need of anything. She was always a selfless human being. She was surely loved and will be greatly missed. <br /></div>
