HERLE, Lindsay Kathleen

April 3, 1998 – January 11, 2015

Lindsay Kathleen Herle, loving daughter of Cheryl and Gary, and sister to Kim and Brittany (fiancé Ryan), passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, January 11, 2015 at the young age of 16 years.

She was born and raised in Calgary, attending Braeside Elementry, John Ware Jr. High, and Henry Wise Wood High School. Lindsay spent her life driven by her passion for music, arts, and writing. She had a creative soul, always redecorating her room, writing a story and creating music with her guitar. Lindsay started drawing at a very young age, surprising us with her talent. Lindsay had a way with animals. She cherished her life long buddy, “Rusty.” She could communicate well with the dogs. She brought a few cats into her family’s life “Quirk” and “Whiskey.” She loved to perform in front of an audience. Whether it was on the debate team or in musical theater. She was always willing to help out her friends and community in Calgary and abroad. Lindsay loved to shop and would drag her mom along with her purse. She took pride in her unique style. Lindsay never refused an offer for tea, morning or night, in a sweet, delicate teacup. Lindsay will be remembered for her generosity, sparkling blue eyes, and uplifting smile.

Besides her loving family, Lindsay is survived by her loving boyfriend Tristan MacWilliams, grandmother Anne Herle (Regina, SK), step-grandma Mary Taylor (Nanoose Bay, BC), Godparents Bryan and Vivian Allen (Calgary, AB), aunts and uncles Judy and Rick Peace (Regina, SK), Darlene and Rich Nichols (Regina, SK), Marlene and Doug Felske (Regina, SK), Anita and Lee Burt (North Battleford, SK) Chris and Diane Herle (Saudi Arabia), Janice and Greg Dodd (Airdrie, AB), Kelly and Cathy Ann Toole (Nelson, BC), Dean Toole and partner Angel Garant (Calgary, AB), her cousin and best friend Bryton Dodd, and numerous cousins and friends. Lindsay was predeceased by her grandparents Doreen and Lewis Toole (Medicine Hat, AB) and Jordon Herle (Regina, SK), her loyal dog Rusty who has been with her from the day she was born till two years ago when he past away.

Lindsay’s family would like to give special thanks to the doctors and nurses at the Rockyview General Hospital Emergency Room, the paramedics, and the city police. Their care, respect and compassion shown to Lindsay and the family was outstanding.

  3. I was so sad to hear about Lindsay. I have such fond memories of her from the time she was a student in my class. Her vivacious personality and many talents in the academic realms made her such a joy to work with. I was thinking of her recently since I started a knitting club again at school and I remember she was one of the knitters from a few years ago. My caring thoughts go out to all of her family and friends. I know you were all such loving supports to Lindsay as she travelled through life.
