June 1, 1954 — April 13, 2024

Drayton Valley

Linda McGinn (nee Walker) passed away on April 13, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love, hard work, and dedication. Born on June 1, 1954, Linda lived a life filled with diverse experiences, having worked in various jobs across British Columbia and Alberta, ranging from advertising sales to operating heavy equipment.
Beyond her professional pursuits, Linda found joy and fulfillment in a wide array of hobbies and interests. She cherished her time with her horses, attending live music events with dear friends, and had a green thumb when it came to flower and vegetable gardening. Her connection to nature was profound, and she often found solace in the great outdoors.
Linda's proudest accomplishments centered around her family. She poured her heart and soul into nurturing her children, Tara, Owen (Ashley Kozmeniuk), and Logan McGinn. Her love extended to her grandchildren, Cadence and Leo McGinn, as well as her brother, Lyle Walker, and niece, Danielle Walker. Gary McGinn, the father of her children, also mourns her loss. Linda was predeceased by her parents, Gordon and Helen Walker, as well as her sister-in-law, Maureen Walker.

In her departure, Linda leaves behind a tapestry of memories woven with kindness, generosity, and unwavering love. May she rest in peace knowing that she will always hold a cherished place in the hearts of those who knew her.

I Am Not There

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
 I am not there, I do not sleep.
 I am
a thousand winds that blow;
 I am the diamond glints
on the snow.
 I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
 I am the gentle
autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
 I am the swift
uplifting rush
 Of quiet birds in
circled flight.
 I am the
soft star that shines at night.
 Do not stand
at my grave and cry.
 I am not there; I did not die.
