June 4, 1927 – Rocky Mountain House, AB
October 10, 2014 – Calgary, AB

We are saddened to announce the passing of Linda Strilchuk on Friday, October 10, 2014 at the age of 87 years, loving wife, dear mother, grandmother and friend.

Linda was born on June 4, 1927 on the farm near Rocky Mountain House, AB and was the youngest of seven children. Linda had movie star good looks which she used to attract her leading man Peter in 1956. They went on to have four children, Patty, Russ, Greg and Bryan, who she raised as a hard-working stay at home mother and wife. Linda did not shy away from telling you what she thought and was blessed with a quick wit and unique sense of humour that kept us laughing to the very end. Her baking skills were beyond compare and her chocolate cake, apple pie and cinnamon buns will remain the stuff of legend.

Linda is survived by her husband Peter, daughter Patty (Sil) Tartal); and sons Russ (Laura) Strilchuk and Greg Strilchuk; six grandchildren, Julia and Bryan Tartal, Kyla and Russell Strilchuk and Jordan and Justine Strilchuk. She also leaves behind her sister Dorothy Bucsis and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her youngest son Bryan in 1993.

No Service will be held. Forward condolences through Our family wish to whole-heartedly thank the doctors, nurses and staff at South Health Campus for their compassion and care of both Mom and us during this time. And as Mom would say, “And that’s the truth!”

In living memory of Linda Strilchuk, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 BANNISTER ROAD S.E. Telephone: 403-256-9575.

Offer Condolence for the family of STRILCHUK, Linda

  1. I am truly sorry to hear about your great loss. Although I never met your mom I know from others how she had a special bond with her family. I also know that she will be missed tremendously by everyone who knew her.

    With great loss comes great sorrow and a deep feeling of emptiness. However, although it may not seem like it right now, over time you will find that this void will be filled with loving memories of all the good times and laughter that you shared with her. My sincerest condolences to all of you. May you find peace and strength in God’s love and in each other.
