Linda Susan Freestone
August 26, 1952
– September 3, 2014
Our precious Lou passed away at St. Joseph’s ER on September 3, 2014, surrounded by her family from across BC after a valiant battle. Her husband of 44 years, Martin, daughter E-J and husband Darrin, son Jason and fiancée Krista, grandchildren, Brandi, Trevor and Skylar, sister Wendy, nieces Sam (Curt) and Sarah (Rick), great nephew Terek, many relatives in England, Germany, and her mother Jean Foster, are left to mourn her passing.
Pre-deceased by her adoring father Russ Foster. She tried to keep her illness hidden but in the end lost the battle. Although being in a coma for the last 29 hours she held off leaving us until her family all arrived from around BC.
Recently she and Martin had more time to travel and visited her family often. She even flew in four aircraft even after stating in 1989 that she would never fly again, but the pull of family overcame that.
She will be sorely missed by her family, friends and neighbours. She gave one last gift of sight to unknown recipients of her corneas.
Rest in peace our love, not a day will pass that we will not remember you with love and fond memories.
Good Night Honey, you are near, even if I don’t see you. You are with me, even if you are not there. You are in my heart, in my thoughts, in my life, always.
In lieu of flowers, donations to Lou’s favourite and only charity the SPCA in her name would be appreciated.
Cremation September 13 at 1:00PM, viewing 12 noon at Comox Valley Funeral Home, 1101 Ryan Road, Courtenay.
