It is with much sadness that we say goodbye to our Mother and Grandmother, Daughter, Sister, Aunt and friend, Linda, who passed away peacefully surrounded by her children on September 30"’, 2019 at the age of 66.

She is survived by her Mother and Partner in Crime, Doris Iris Pavitt. Her loving and devoted children, Darren (Shelley) Schwarz, Danny (Amanda) Schwarz, Corinne (Jaime) Thibodeau, Carolyn (Kevin) Doryk, Ted (Anita) Cisecki and Tammy (Troy) Cisecki. As well as numerous family members and friends.

Most importantly, Linda's pride and joy, her grandchildren and great grandchildren, Karisa, Raelyn, Pamela, Christopher, Joshua, Payton, Jayna, Cohen, Christian, Trenton, Tayah, Teagan, Luna, Karsen and Kaylee. All of whom brought a world of happiness to their Grandma.                                                       

Linda is predeceased by her Father Stanley Ronald Pavitt and her beloved Husband, Mike Harry Cisecki.

Linda was born in Oxford England on October 3, 1952, and at the age of 11 she moved with her family to Canada. Living in different towns and cities for most of her life, she had a sense of adventure, even taking part in a Demolition Derby! Her spontaneity didn't end there, as she loved to travel at any chance she got. She traveled around world with her husband Mike and continued to do so well after his passing, creating amazing lifelong memories. Living in Africa was just one of the fantastic adventures she experienced. Linda was also very accomplished, graduating with her MBA in Certified Management Accounting while raising a family was an incredible feat! She had a long career doing what she loved. Linda also had an amazing talent for sewing, especially quilting. Her passion and creativity created some of the most beautiful quilts ever and of course she continued to do so up until just days before she passed. Linda always said she had lived a full life, and life was more fulfilled when her grandbabies came into the picture. She adored them and any chance she got in supporting them at their dance recitals or hockey games, she was there as their biggest fan! Linda really was an exemplary Grandmother and truly the best anyone could ever ask for.

“Our Mom is now resting peacefully after a long battle with ALS. We are sad beyond measure and will truly miss her. We will forever treasure her humor, guidance and strength. Her love and devotion will forever live in each and everyone of us. We love you Mom.”

A Special Thank You to our Mom's wonderful, loving caregivers Penny, Candice and Genevieve, who were all supportive and took great care in making sure our Mom was comfortable during her final months and who also gave amazing support to the family through this horrible disease.

There will be a Celebration of Life for Linda at the Trinity Funeral Home (10530-116 Street, Edmonton, Alberta) on October 5, 2019 at 2:00 PM

  1. I can only try to express how thankful I am that I got to share Linda’s final two healthy years. We traveled across Canada twice pulling a small trailer, went on vacation in Mexico, and took a cruise. She loved to cook, to quilt, to hike, to fish, to kayak, to swim, to dance, to laugh….a lover of family, six inch heels and fast cars. Linda will remain alive in my heart and thoughts of her will always bring a smile to my face. Rest In Peace dear friend.

    Linda and I met going to school at SJ Willis in Victoria (we were 13 yrs old) – then I moved away – which was common for me – our family moved a lot – imagine my delight to run into Linda in Port ALBERNI less than a couple years later.
    Over the years we had a lot of fun together, she lived with my mom for a time and was, as only Linda could be, so good to my mom.. Linda and I had our first children in the same year, she in August and me in December.
    Linda and her little family move away and back, Linda and her boys lived with my girls and I for a few months while she was going through a difficult time and then she left Port ALBERNI for good – travelling around sometimes to very exotic places. We kept in touch and visited her and Mike in Paradise ( she pierced my daughters ears), we visited them in Fort Mac and a few months before Mike passed they came and spent some time with us at our home in PA. After Mike passed we had short visits from Linda every summer until the year before she became sick – my own hubby’s illness and treatment kept us from being able to make it to Alberta to see her. Linda and I shared a love of sewing and dancing and family – she loved to laugh but was always there to hug you if you were down. Linda was incredibly kind and generous. I will miss her very much. Please know that if there is EVER anything that I can do for her children or grandchildren you only need ask

  11. My heartfelt condolences to Linda’s children and grandchildren and their families.

    • My deepest sympathy to your family. Linda was a lovely lady. I am sure she will be missed

  12. My condolences to Linda’s family and friends

  13. Dear Linda :

    I will always remember your kindness. I will miss you.
    With sadness and a heavy heart.
    Aunty Mary.

  14. Wow – I came across Linda’s obit by chance. I’ve not seen her in 45 yrs, but she had a special place in my life when I was a young man in Port Alberni. Our gang had so many good times together and she was a great friend. And yes, she was in a demolition derby – she won the Powder Puff trophy in my ‘58 Mercury!
    It’s great to hear of her accomplished life and sad to hear of her passing.
