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.

  • I never got to say goodbye. I should have been there to hold your hand & tell you how much I loved you, but because of covid-19 we could not be there.  I truly believe that John and Mom & Dad were there to meet you and you are now at peace with them. I miss you, we all miss you every day.  You always thought of all of us before yourself.  We only could see you one time after you had passed away, and I read a verse to you and it  is called SISTER.                        Of all the many blessings, However great or small,  To have you for a sister was the greatest one of all.  The family chain is broken now and nothing seems the same.  But as God takes us one by one the chain will link again.   TILL THEN I MUST NOW SAY GOODBYE    Your loving sister Suzanne                                                                           

  • Lynn is my sister and I miss her dearly.  Lynn is 8 years older than me.  As we grew older and we all had our own families I didn’t see my siblings as much as I should have.  I’ve lived in New Hampshire for at least 40 years. Lynn was a very caring person and had helped me and my husband when times were difficult.  Lynn never complained, even when she was in pain, and always asked how I was and if I needed anything.  I miss the good times when we all gathered together at Sue and Gil’s home.  

    Lynn someday we will be together again.   Love Diane

  • What a beautiful obituary.  Good job.  She was a sweetheart and I was proud that she was my sister-in-law.  Rest In Peace Lynn

  • I miss my sister so much.  Lynn was so helpful to me and my husband.  She would always send cards for special occasions, like Birthday’s, our anniversary, Christmas, and to just to say hello.  Lynn never complained, even if she was not well.  She always was concerned about others, before herself.
     
     I’ve lived in New Hampshire for a long time and did not see my family as much as I should have.  When we were all together we had some good times. 

    Lynn I miss you and love you and someday we’ll meet again.
