Linda Lewis, former editor-in-chief of MORE dies

[This post has been updated] Linda Lewis, who was the founding editor of the Canadian edition of MORE magazine, a former editor of Today's Parent and a good friend of many in the Canadian magazine industry, has died at the age of 52 as the result of a rare form of leukemia. Among many other things she was notable for a her frankness in writing about the disease on her Twitter feed, @LindaOnLeukemia. The last tweet was June 28:
"This brutal disease may be taking its toll, but I still appreciate all the warm messages. Thanks for the continued support."
There was an excellent profile by Judith Timson published in The Star last November, both about the disease and Linda's way of dealing with it.  

[Update] Details of the funeral: Tuesday, July 23, 12:30 p.m., Benjamin's Park Memorial Chapel, 2401 Steeles Ave. W, Toronto. Interment Pardes Shalom Cemetery, Beth Torah Synagogue section.
