Linda Merrilynn Hooley

26 July 1943 – 17 January 2016

The family of Linda Hooley wishes to announce that she has left us. We are devastated. Linda was the best mother, grandmother, wife, or friend a person could hope for: unfailingly supportive, non-judgmental, hard-working, wise, loyal, and loving. She had a quiet yet wicked sense of humour. Linda taught by example, and we tried to practice these traits in our own lives. She was fiercely loved by: Jack, her devoted husband; her daughter Vivian (Perry); her daughter Lisa (Bob); and her grandchildren Daniel (Kristina), Christopher (Robyn), Justin (Sarah), Patrick, and Katreena. We are not the only ones – the list is long. We will miss her forever. There is so much to say about Linda and her life that we have chosen to say little…for now. Thanks to all Linda’s friends, especially her paddling teammates, who were so selfless and helpful. We will host a Celebration to honour Linda during the summer. Anyone wishing to attend may contact Vivian (250-434-6455)
