Linda Smith, President Norwich Spiritualist Church

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing to spirit of Linda Fern Smith.  Linda is known to so many throughout the movement and of course is mother to Tanya Smith, our General Manager at the Arthur Findlay College.

Our thoughts go out to Linda as she begins her new journey and to Brian, Tanya, Stuart and the family at this sad time for them.

Linda has been a true inspiration within the movement over many years and has lead her Church in Norwich, building an inclusive caring community but also looking out to work through Interfaith which has seen engagement with other faiths in the area building a better cross faith understanding.

Linda’s dedication to Spiritualism, her knowledge of the pioneers and also the many friends she made over the years is an inspiration to many and it is these memories we should carry forward to sustain us in the weeks ahead.

Linda will be missed by many, go with our love Linda until we meet again.
