In loving memory and forever in our hearts, our beautiful daughter, sister, aunt and friend, Linette left our world, at the age of 61 years, after a short illness, to be with her loving husband Dennis who predeceased her in April 2001. Linette was also predeceased by her father Alphonse (Tac) Jullion (1973) and her brother Blair (1972). Linette is survived by her loving mother, Marie; her beloved sisters, Jullie, Rose Marie (Joseph), Réjeanne, Carmelle, Louise; and Lisa. She is also survived by her niece Christine (Sébastian); nephews, Jason (Che), Brett, Jullien, Dexter, and Galen; and great nieces, Averie, Sophie, Rhyse, and Llyra, and of course Linette’s faithful dog, Kodi.
Linette was born in North Battleford, SK and moved to Calgary in the early 70’s. When she arrived in Calgary Linette met the love of her life, Dennis, and they settled down and called Calgary home. Most of Linette’s working career was along side of the late Mr. Scobey Hartley. Linette’s last couple of years were dedicated to the Calgary Health Trust raising funds for the Southern Alberta Institute of Urology located at the Rockyview General Hospital. The Institute is now under construction thanks in part to the efforts of Linette.
Linette had a love for life as she did for her many close friends. She is smiling down on all of us looking gorgeous in her color coordinated outfit. Her world was always filled with bright colors and she had one of the greatest smiles ready to brighten your day. Linette was extremely giving of her time sitting on numerous boards and charitable committees. Her volunteering made a significant impact in the community, some of the many organizations she volunteered with were: PC Leadership – Calgary Elbow, Member of Alberta Disability Coalition, Member of Premier’s Council for Disabilities, Member of Alberta Student’s Finance Appeal Committee, The Calgary Homeless Foundation, Our Lady Queen of Peace Ranch, Alberta’s Promise, Canadian Paraplegic Association, Christmas Dinner for the Homeless, the Premier’s Annual Dinner Committee, FORK (Friend’s of Ralph Klein) Committee, just to name a few.
