Obituary of Linda Marie LaBate
Linda Marie LaBate GREENBUSH--With a heavy heart, the family would like to share that Linda Marie LaBate passed away unexpectedly in her home the morning of July 28th, 2022. Linda was born in Brockton, Massachusetts on October 21, 1951, to the late Anne Marie Silva, and the late Louis John LaBate Jr and his wife Patricia LaBate. Linda graduated from Mater Dei Academy in 1969. Linda moved to Maine in the early 90’s and found her beautiful home in Greenbush, Me. Linda worked for the same company for 30 years, currently known as Eastside Rehab. She took a lot of pride in her work and loved her co-workers. She always spoke fondly of them. In the afternoons and evenings on warm days you could find Linda soaking up the sun in her screen porch with her long time partner, Johnnie Ketch Jr. of Greenbush, Me., who she loved with all her heart. Linda was blessed with a large, loving family: her late brother, James LaBate, her late sister, Laura LaBate, sister Donna Lariviere of Taunton, Ma., sister Theresa LaBate of Brockton, Ma., brother Louis LaBate III and his wife Lindi LaBate of Lakeville, Ma. Her grandchildren, Brittany Monkevicz her partner Jemal Dixon of Mansfield, MA; Corey Monkevicz, Dylan Whitmire, Alexis Whitmire, and Elise Whitmire of Dighton, MA; Jaxson Gilmore-Gross and Eloise LaBate of Searsport ME, and her great grandchildren Daija Dixon and Jemal Dixon Jr. of Mansfield, MA, were her pride and joy. She loved showing them off and bragging about their accomplishments. She loved her children Kimberly Whitmire and her husband Jeff Whitmire of Dighton MA, and Nicholas LaBate and his wife Hillary LaBate of Searsport, ME. Linda will be remembered for her big, giving heart. If someone was in need she’d do everything in her power to help. Linda also had a quick wit and was always cracking jokes and making everyone laugh. Linda was also meticulous and lovingly teased her children and grandchildren—they will always think of her when making their beds or getting those cob webs in the corners. Linda was loved by many people and will be missed deeply by those who were blessed to have her in their lives. Her death leaves a hole in their hearts that will never be patched. Her family would like to thank the Penobscot County Sheriff office and the Birmingham Funeral Home in Old Town for their support and kindness during this difficult time. Per Linda’s wishes there will be no public service. A small family gathering will be held at a later time.
