LIVINGSTONE, Melinda Caroline (Linda)
October 9, 1926 – March 1, 2015
It is with much sadness that we announce the death of Linda – mother, Grandmother and great grandmother. Linda is predeceased by husband Raymond and daughter Dawne, daughter-in-law Ronnie, sisters Eileen Flodstrom and Fern McDonald-Golos, brothers Bill, Ernie, Rolly and Kenny. She is survived by her children James, Jeanne and Richard (Ruth), seven grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, as well as sister Marg (Jim) Collen, brothers Tom (Myrtle), Johnny (Betty), Jerry (Vinita) and Bob (Sheila). Born in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and one of twelve children born to William & Iva
McLaren. The family moved to the Vernon area during the great depression before settling in Hedley in the early forties. Here she met Ray and they married in 1945. Linda balanced career and family and was devoted to her husband and children. She was the pillar of the family. Her grandchildren were the light of her life. After her retirement she travelled often, particularly to Australia and the UK to visit her grandchildren. She was a gracious, caring person who enjoyed socializing with her many friends and relatives. She met her diagnosis of Alzheimer’s with calm and strength, and lived out her final years at Crescent Gardens Care Home. We wish to thank the care staff for their kindness and support. At Linda’s request there will be no service but a celebration of her life will be held in Vernon this summer.
