It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Linda Bourgeois after a lengthy battle with cancer. Linda was surrounded by family and friends in her final moments and passed peacefully into the hands of the Lord. Her suffering is now over.
Linda was predeceased by her older brother Raymond and both parents John and Betsy Stack.
She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of many years Frank, and her pride and joy their son Drew. Also left to mourn her passing are her brothers Bill (Marion) Stack, Bob (Karen) Stack and John Stack, as well as her two nephews Raymond and Tyler Stack and her niece Jessica Stack.
Linda was a very passionate, dedicated person and this was seen in her commitment to the Royal Canadian Legion Nelson Branch where she held almost every executive position – some many times. Both Linda and Frank were deeply committed to the Meals-on-Wheels program.
Linda was a true friend and great comrade to all who knew her. One of Linda’s greatest accomplishments was being awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal for her outstanding contribution to community and country. The world has lost a tremendous individual, dedicated wife, mother, sister, aunt and friend.
The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses at the Kootenay Lake District Hospital and the Kelowna Hospital for the loving care given to Linda.
A Celebration of Life for Linda will be held at the Royal Canadian Legion Nelson Branch on August 19, 2013 at 1:00 pm.
