SENKIW, Linda (Hagerty)

January 11, 1948 – November 24, 2011

Linda Senkiw, beloved wife of Orest Senkiw of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, November 24, 2011 at the age of 63 years.

Linda was born in Moose Jaw, SK and grew up on the family farm, heavily involved in 4H. She first met Orest through friends while curling. They were married on July 10, 1971 and recently celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary.

Shortly after marrying, Linda had two wonderful kids amid a flurry of worldwide travel. No matter where the family settled, Linda drew people to her and enjoyed a wonderful social circle. They settled in Calgary where she was an active member of the community and an enthusiastic supporter of the local education system.

She was challenged with multiple sclerosis too young in life but never allowed it to dampen her spirits. She was happy and upbeat, and managed to find humour in all situations. She lived life with a grace that few can claim to have.

Besides her loving husband Orest, Linda will be sadly missed by her daughter Michelle (Paul); son Steven; mother-in-law Vera; brother Larry (Fay) as well as family and friends. She loved and was deeply thankful for everyone in her life

Funeral Services will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Tuesday, November 29, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. Graveside Service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on December 2, 2011 at the Pleasantview Cemetery in Wynyard, SK. Condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada, Calgary & Area Chapter, 150, 110 Quarry Park Blvd. S.E., Calgary, AB T2C 3G3 Telephone: (403) 250-7090,

In living memory of Linda Senkiw a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Crowfoot Chapel, 82 CROWFOOT CIRCLE N.W. Telephone: (403) 241-0044.

    Dear Friend,
    My heart grieves at losing you and my heart regrets not connecting more often. You often were in my thoughts and busyness distracted me from calling you. That will always be a regret. What fun we had and how many coffee times! It will never be too late to call – now when I think of you, I will always connect with you. With special hugs and deep love for a true sister of the heart. I WILL MISS YOU!!Love Margaret

  2. Orest, Michelle and Steve,
    Linda will be missed by so very many.

    She was an amazing person, and a great inspiration. Despite her many challenges with MS, she never complained or felt sorry for herself. She always had a ready chuckle at an amusing antidote or something Orest or you kids had said or done.

    Michelle and Steve, you have to know that she was very proud of you and your accomplishments. She shared them with us often.

    I will miss her beautiful smile and her always present chuckle. I am thankful she was a part of my life for so many years. I will miss her dearly.

    Condolences from the Hampaul and Priel Family.

  7. Orest, Michelle and Steve,
    Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your wife and mother, and to me, a good friend at Ranchlands. Boy, those were the days. And Linda played such an active part in all of them. So honest, positive and hard working, I will always remember her conversations, laughter and fun. She helped make us the BEST community School in Alberta. May you find comfort in that she will be in a better place, free from pain. Take care, and my thoughts and prayers are with you all today.
