Linda Lorraine Percival

October 13, 1951 - April 27, 2018


It is with great sadness and deep sense of loss that we announce the passing of Linda Percival at the hospital in Invermere, BC. She battled her illness with remarkable dignity and courage.

Linda is survived by her husband of 43 years, Don, her mother, Marie, daughter, Natalie (Kyle), granddaughter, Ione and son, Ryland (Erin). Also grieving her loss will be the families of her step sisters Adrienne (Duane) Radford, Lucille(John) Humble and Selma(Rob)Nicol; her mother-in-law Sheila Percival; and Don’s siblings families including John, Frank, Patricia and Terry Percival .

She was predeceased by her stepfather Maurice Hitchen, step mother Pat Cushing, sister Donna Cushing and partner Mike Varty, and her father Don Cushing.

Linda was born and raised in Calgary. In 1975 she and Don married and moved to Red Deer, Alberta where they lived a full and dynamic life for 35 years pursuing their professional careers, raising the family and living life to the fullest with a strong circle of friends. In the early years in Red Deer Linda attended the Red Deer College and received her Fine Arts Diploma and Registered Nursing degree.

In 2007 they built their retirement cottage in Invermere BC and by 2010 were full-time residents. Linda embraced life in the valley. She passionately pursued her interest in Art and gained recognition for her considerable talents in painting and ceramics. She was very active hiking, kayaking, biking, golfing and skiing and her and Don enjoyed numerous travel adventures.

Linda was deeply loved and supported by family and friends. She was funny, kind, artistic, loving and stunningly beautiful in mind, body and soul. Her family and friends will miss her dearly but the world is a more colourful and loving place because of her.

The family would like to thank Dr. Chu and the nursing staff of Unit 42 Foothills Hospital and Dr. Mannheimer and the nursing staff of the Invermere Hospital for their excellent and compassionate care.

At Linda’s request there will be a private family service and a celebration of life ceremony for all who wish to attend (date to be announced).

Our deepest sympathies to Don and family on the passing of Linda. Her authentic nature, long with a hint of humour and a sparkle, made for such positive relationships. May your eternal memories sustain you at this time.
