Linda Niamath passed away peacefully on September 16, 2020, in Vancouver at the age of 81. She is sadly missed by her husband of 55 years, Kent, daughters Wendy and Cheryl, and son-in-law Paul Lesack.

Linda was born and raised in Vancouver, later moving to Richmond, where she lived with her family. She was an elementary school teacher for eight years and later taught piano from a studio in her home.

Linda was a loving mother and a kind and compassionate person with a wonderful sense of humour. She had many strong and enduring friendships and took great pleasure in connecting with others.

Linda was a highly regarded composer and Honorary Fellow of the Royal Conservatory of Music; several generations of children around the world have learned to play her wonderful and expressive pieces at their piano lessons. She is best known for her 11 albums of piano music for young pianists – her legacy for future generations.
