In Loving Memory of Linda Fay Heagy of Rimbey, Alberta who passed away at her home on Sunday, August 3, 2014 at the age of 66 years.
Linda was raised in Rockglen, Saskatchewan where she met the love of her life, Marvin. Marvin and Linda were married in 1968 and blessed with three children, six grandchildren, and one great grandchild. The family relocated several times following Marvin’s oilfield career. In 1980, the family moved to Rimbey making it “home”. While in Rimbey, Linda loved sharing her energy and sense of humour with the elderly when employed at the Parkland Manor, and later at the Rimbey Hospital. Linda had a kind heart and was always willing to help others. She very much enjoyed the sports of curling and golf, and over the years took lead roles in sharing her passion by teaching youth the games as well. There was always some good name-calling when friends and family got together for a good ‘ol card game. Linda was passionate about many things… the Riders, and grandchildren first and foremost. She was always a tremendous help by being an extra parent… never hesitating to help drive her grandchildren to school, a sports game, or even a party. Linda was the ‘hostess with the mostest’. She didn’t drink or eat much herself, but she always kept everyone watered and fed.
Linda will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her husband of 46 years, Marvin; her three children, David Heagy of Drayton Valley; Sherri (Rod) Ryckman of Red Deer; and Brent (Naomi) Heagy of Fort McMurray; as well as six cherished grandchildren: Anesea (Ryan), Lindsey, Taryn, Faith, Quinn, and Brodie; and one treasured great grandson, Weston. She will also be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her brother, Selmar (Elaine) Gullickson of Surrey, B.C.; special cousin, Don (Carol) Anderson of Regina, Saskatchewan; in addition to numerous nieces and nephews, other relatives, and a host of friends. Linda was predeceased by Elizabeth “Liz” Nelson and Robert “Bob” Tiefenbach; and her brother, Buzzy Gullickson.
With respect for Linda’s wishes, no formal funeral service will be held. A Casual Celebration of Linda’s Life will be held at the family farm on Saturday, August 23, 2014 beginning at 4:00 p.m. In recognition of Linda’s favourite colour, please wear green. Cremation took place at the Central Alberta Crematorium, Red Deer. If friends desire, memorial tributes in Linda’s Memory may be made directly to the Rimbey Curling Club ~ Jr. Program, Box 768, Rimbey, Alberta T0C 2J0.
