It is with great sadness and very heavy hearts we announce the passing of Linda Devlin on September 3rd 2014 at the Chemainus Health Center. Linda is predeceased by loving parents Doug and Phyllis Taylor.  Linda is survived by her sons Brad (Rachel) and Brent, brothers Doug (Judy), Ray (Bev), Ken (Barb), sister Patricia (Bill). Linda’s little angels Aimie, Breanna, and Helaena. Numerous, nieces’, nephews’, uncles, aunts and cousins. Linda was loved by all whom had the pleasure of knowing her.Linda was born in Duncan but raised in the small communities of Nitinat and Caycuse. She was a proud hockey mom who lived for weekends at the rink. She also loved to take trips, Hawaii, Mexico, Cuba or up and down Vancouver Island. Linda’s favorite spot was Lake Cowichan were she would float the day away. Linda will be fondly remembered for many things like her quick wit, infectious laugh, giving nature   unconditional love and support. A giant thank you to the wonderful doctors, nurses and care aids from Cowichan District Hospital and the Chemainus Health Center. A celebration of life will be held in Linda’s honour in early October.

Linda and I were friends in school. Lake Cowichan Secondary was a much better place because of Linda and so was my life. Although we took different directions after school eventually losing track of one another I thought of her often and it always brought a smile to my face. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family and friends. Gone but never forgotten.

Relation: Friend/co-worker

Brad,Brent and family;
Your mom had the greatest sense of humor. We worked together for a long time and her love for her sons was immeasurable. Each day she came armed with a new story of your shenanigans that would have us all howling with laughter. She was a wonderful mother, daughter,sister and friend and I am extremely lucky to have shared a small part of her life.

From: Anne Greer
Relation: Former workmate

To Brad and Brent and all of Linda’s family I send my deepest condolences. I had lost touch with Linda after we worked together in Duncan so it was a shock to see the notice of her passing in the paper. She was a wonderful person full of fun and laughter and will be sadly missed by everyone who knew her. Be at peace now Linda. Anne and Keith xxx
