After eight and a half years of courageously fighting breast cancer, Linda peacefully passed away at the age of 64 years on Friday, September 17, 2010 surrounded by her immediate family. Her name meant “beautiful” and her beauty shone through in her love, her personality, generosity and caring spirit.

Left to cherish her memories are her loving husband and best friend of 44 years, Ray; her three daughters, Shannon (John), Shawnna (Darren), and Dawn (Jason); and her four grandsons, Jaylon, Joel, Andrew and Michael, who were the pride and joy of her life. Her step-grandchildren, Adam and Ashley, will also greatly miss her.

The family extends their sincere appreciation to the outstanding compassionate care from the doctors, nurses, staff and volunteers of the Palliative Intensive Care Unit at the Tom Baker Cancer Center. Thank you also to our friends and relatives for their support at this time.

A celebration of Linda’s life will take place at the Advent Lutheran Church (11 Scenic Acres Gate N.W., Calgary AB) on Friday, September 24, 2010 at 2:00 p.m.

Donations in lieu of flowers may be made directly to the Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 – 29 Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 4N2 Telephone: (403) 521-3433.

  1. Dear Ray, losing your loving spouse, faithful companion, the person who kept your immediate family ties close will be difficult to accept. I’m sure as you know when your partners quality of life has no future we eventually come to terms it was best to let them go peacefully.

    My true deepest condolences on yours and your family loss of a great lady.

    I did say we should go out for lunch in late September. But in light of losing Linda and what you’re going thru we should rebook in a couple of months from now when you’re up to it.

    I’m very sorry Ray.. why is it people vanish at such a young age when life is going so great for them and their families is a disturbing thought I still struggle with today.

    Take Care
    Hope to chat Soon.
