Linda Mores (nee Franco)

May 12, 1931 – October 3, 2019
Linda Mores (nee Franco) sadly passed away on October 3, 2019 at 88 years of age. She was born on May 12, 1931 in Trail, BC where she grew up and later in life worked for BC Telephone as an operator, back in the days of switchboards.
Linda was one of the first women to be promoted to Service & Repair Coordinator at BC Telephone, which was a position normally only held by men.
She met her future husband Atillio “Tilly” Mores in Trail, BC and they were married in Castlegar, BC on September 26, 1970.
Linda loved cooking and baking for her family. She loved working in her enormous garden and enjoyed the bounty that came with it. She enjoyed ceramics and going out with “the girls” for birthday luncheons and events. Linda also loved to entertain and was always hosting family & friends for any occasion. Linda’s greatest joy was her four grandchildren.
Linda is survived by her children, Lisa (Dan) Markevich and Chris (Aimee) Mores; her grandchildren Ethan, Colton, Alyssa and Connor; her brother Aldo Franco and her sister-in-law Fermina (Harold) Bath as well as many nieces, nephews & cousins. Linda was predeceased by her loving husband Tilly, daughter Teresa Mores, parents Cristofolo & Maria Franco, her brother Guiseppe Franco, sisters Mina Smecher & Josephine Franco and sister-in- law Yones Couch.
Mom was a strong independent woman who was very loving, caring & forgiving. Mom, you will be deeply missed, never forgotten and forever loved.
Friends and family are asked to join us at Thompson Funeral Service, 613 Ward St. Nelson BC on Saturday, October 19th at 11 am to remember Linda.
A special thank you to Dr. Vasil and all the staff at Castleview Care Centre for the wonderful care and love that they provided for both mom and the family. Also a special thank you to all the family & friends that were able to visit mom while she was at Castleview.
As an expression of sympathy, donations can be made in Mom’s memory to the Heart & Stroke Foundation of BC or a charity of your choice.
