October 3, 1943 ~ August 15, 2009
Lynda reluctantly left us on August 15, 2009 at 12:15 a.m. with her family beside her. She showed all of us her courage and dignity as she fought her battle with cancer, leaving us far too soon. She was predeceased by her parents Joseph Benjamin and Jenny Edith Hickman.
She is survived by her daughter Jennifer Hoffman (Rob); son Corey Doumont (Angela); twin brother John Hickman (Caran); sister Joann Harding (Jack); life-long friend Leanna Cooper (Lorne); grandchildren Sydney Lynda Ann, and Elizabeth Leah Mirren Hoffman, and cousins Isabelle Hickman and Jacqueline Waldron of Victoria.
Lynda’s passing leaves her family with a wonderful legacy of faith, hope and loyal love for all who knew her. She has created a vast collection of amazing artwork. Those who loved “Mrs. D.” remember times of humour, counsel and her tremendous insights into life. She will be missed greatly.
A Memorial Tribute will be held Saturday, August 22nd at 2:00 pm at the Christ Community Church, 2221 Bowen Road, Nanaimo, BC.
For those so desiring, donations in memory of Lynda may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
