April 9, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our amazing wife, mom, grandma, sister, daughter, aunt and friend.
Linda left us unexpectedly on April 9, 2019.
Linda was born in Stony Plain, Alberta in 1950. She attended Stony Plain Memorial Composite High School and University of Alberta. She had several occupations in her life including running small businesses with her husband and working for various companies in Canada and the US as Linda and Blake had the opportunity to live and work in different places. Linda retired from her professional life when they moved to Europe so that she could take on the role of tour guide for the many visitors that came to see them.
Linda always faced her life and many challenges in a way that should leave us all inspired to be a little better. Even after losing her eye, Linda had the tenacity to drive by herself across the country to be back in Vancouver, a place Blake and Linda always considered to be home. Linda was determined not to let the loss of one eye stop her from doing whatever she wanted.
She is survived by her husband of almost 50 years, Blake and son Pat (Teresa) and daughter Sandra (Brad). After raising their family in the Vancouver area, Linda and Blake spent many years living in the US and Europe. They travelled extensively throughout the world and enjoyed experiencing different places.
Linda’s pride and joy were her five grandchildren Kelsea, Kendra, Alex, Sarah and Alaina. Linda and Blake returned to the Vancouver area in retirement to be closer to their kids and grandkids. They all spent many great times together, whether it was on a beach in Hawaii, a houseboat in the Shuswap, a day in the spa or on the soccer field, Linda loved being with all her grandchildren and they all miss her.
Linda is also survived by her father Ed Miller. Brothers Dale (Jacquie), Dwight and Kim (Mitch). Also many sisters and brothers in law, nieces and nephews. Linda’s mother Ruth and brother Bryan predeceased her.
A celebration of life will be held on May 4, 2019 at 2 pm.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to BC Children’s Hospital, Canadian Cancer Society or CNIB.
