Linda M. Rein 10/12/2020

North Attleboro – Linda M. (Weatherbee) Rein, 80, passed away peacefully on Monday, October 12, 2020 in Providence.  She was born in Cambridge, MA on July 13, 1940.  She was a loving daughter to the late Emery Union Weatherbee and Alice Grace (Haynes) Weatherbee.  Lynn grew up in Belmont.  She graduated from Dedham High School in 1958.

Lynn spent most of her life in East Walpole residing near Bird Park with her family.  Lynn is survived by her devoted children:  Karen (Dziubaniuk) Hopkins and husband, Francis of North Attleboro, Darlene (Dziubaniuk) Brown and partner, George Vinson of Plainville, and Michael Dziubaniuk and partner Amy Uebel Auer of Kentucky.  She had four grandchildren:  Brianna Hopkins, Emily Hopkins, Ashley Brown, and Michael Dziubaniuk.  She was the dear sister of James Weatherbee and the late Suzanne (Godfrey), Suzanne Miller and husband Gilbert, Diane (Silvestri) Dombrowski and husband Joseph, and Nancy Stoukides and husband Michael. She was a dear aunt to many nieces and nephews.

She married the love of her life, John P. Rein, on July 12, 1991 in Norwood.  They resided for many years in Norwood before moving to Plymouth.  They enjoyed taking strolls down the beautiful path in Plymouth center, whether it was a walk to the Grist Mill to visit with friends or viewing the lovely serene, calming of the ocean.

After the passing of her love in January 1998, Lynn moved to North Attleboro to be closer to her family.  Lynn’s family was the essence of her life.  She enjoyed family gatherings while relaxing in the backyard for a barbeque while sipping on an occasional cranberry and vodka.  She enjoyed attending her grandchildren’s sporting events and gladly cheered them on.  She was an animal lover and loved her cats.  She enjoyed travelling to the casinos with her family and friends.  She would remove $20 from her wallet and hit the slot machines.  She was joyous if she went home with a little cash in her pocket.  Spending holidays with her family were joyous and filled with much love and laughter.  She never took life for granted.  She lived on her terms.  She will be remembered as a sweet, loving, and caring woman that loved the simple things in life. 

She was a dedicated homemaker to her family.  She then became employed by Puritan Furniture, Norfolk and Dedham Group, John Carver Inn, and then lastly retiring with Hollingsworth & Vose Company in East Walpole where she worked as an accounting clerk from May 26, 1999 to May 28, 2009.

Services will be determined at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to St Jude’s Hospital.
