1945 – 2016
It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Linda Dickey announce her passing on December 1, 2016 in Williams Lake at the age of 70.
She will be greatly missed by her husband Art Dickey, children Ronnie Dickey and Brenda Dickey, and grandchildren Jarod, Tia and Eli as well as many other family members.
Linda was predeceased by her parents Doug and Marg Mallette, brother Ronnie, sister Debbie, grandson Brandon and grandparents Hope and Katherine Patenaude.
Linda was born in Williams Lake and led a busy life that included rodeos and working in a flower store. In 1962, as a 16 year old high school art student, she won the contest to design the Coat of Arms for Williams Lake. The original design has remained with Williams Lake as it became a town in 1965 and a city in 1981.
Linda enjoyed keeping busy on her ranch, judging for 4-H and spending time with her grandchildren as they grew.
There will be a graveside service for Linda on Thursday, December 8, 2016 at 11:00 a.m. at the Williams Lake Cemetery. Father Derrick Cameron officiating. Reception to follow at the Williams Lake Curling Rink.
Donations in memory of Linda can be made to the Cariboo Foundation Hospital Trust.
“A beautiful life that came to an end,
She died as she lived, everyone’s friend,
In our hearts, a memory will always be kept,
Of one we loved and will never forget.”
