LINDA JEAN ADDISON

Addison, Linda Jean

Linda Jean lost her courageous 6 year battle with ALS (Lou Gerhig’s Disease) on December 13, 2009. Born in Nanaimo on April 4, 1946, she is survived by her brother, Bill Addison; her birth daughter Lisa Green; cousins, and many wonderful close friends who stood by her on her journey with ALS. L-J, her nickname since high school, is the daughter of Joe and Hazel Addison, deceased. Her love and compassion for animals was prominent in her life. L-J treasured our wonderful part of the world for kayaking, hiking, cycling and skiing and was grateful to be born and raised here. She is a former TD Bank employee (1988 until 2001). She felt blessed to have crossed paths with so many amazing people during her lifetime and for the many outdoor adventures she experienced. L-J had a kinship with the ocean and loved to be out in her kayak. There will be no funeral by request but an outdoor farewell party will be planned at a future date.

“When you see or hear a seagull, think of me.

I’ll see you on the next wave.”
