It is with sad hearts that we announce the passing of Linda Jean Ledoux. She passed away suddenly from Alzheimer’s at her home in Union Bay, BC. Linda was born at Royal
Columbian hospital in New Westminister, BC to Louis and Jane Hawkes (both deceased). Oldest brother David Hawkes (deceased). Linda is survived by her husband Lawrence Ledoux, her brother Ray Hawkes, her twin sisters Bonnie Kopetski (Al), Brenda Mckelvie (Kevin), sons Dan Ledoux (Susan), Brian Ledoux (Melissa), Grandchildren Riley, Spencer, Ranae, Dylan and many beloved nephews and nieces.
Linda married her one true love Lawrence Ledoux in Surrey, BC 1968. They had two wonderful sons together. Linda and Lawrence moved from the coast to Quesnel in 1977. She worked at Correlieu Senior Secondary as a secretary and then for the Quesnel City Hall as a secretary. Linda’s real passion though was flowers, so she bought Naicam flowers and operated it for 10 glorious years. All along Linda was very involved in the community, she was Quesnel’s Chamber president in 1991, Quesnel’s first female Rotary President, and she was a huge help in getting Quesnel’s Hospice Society started. In 1998, Linda and Lawrence moved to Vancouver Island where she volunteered for Hospice until her illness prevented her from doing so.
The family would like to thank Quesnel for all its years of support, and in lieu of flowers a donation to any Hospice Society would be wonderful. Linda was a very spiritual person who loved to laugh. She will be truly missed by all.
