Born in Spezzano Piccolo, Italy on May 8, 1921, Linda came to Canada and Revelstoke in 1952. She was a devoted mother to five daughters as well in her younger years worked in the tourist industry, assisting with cooking and taking care of the rooms for guests. She always played a large role in the Catholic community in supporting fund raisers through her baking, and could be counted on to be ever generous in her wisdom, stories and willingness to share anything from her kitchen.
She was predeceased by her husband, Jasper in 1978, infant daughter, Yvonne, daughter Toni and her grandson, Cory Wasylnka.
