It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Linda Shirley Hannah (69) of Savona BC. Linda passed away in Kamloops, BC on October 10, 2023, with loved ones at her side. Linda’s greatest love was her family and friends.

Grieving her loss is her lovingly devoted husband Earl Young; mother and friend Shirley Hannah; children – Sara Hannah (Evan Zielke), Loren Young and Carly Nichol (Brad); grandchildren – Isabelle and Reed Zielke and William and Zachary Nichol; siblings Scott Hannah (Lin), Tom Hannah (Bania), and Dianne Kehler; uncle Bill Craddock (Cheryl); cousins, nieces; nephews; extended family; and many life-long friends whom Linda considered family.

Linda was born August 7, 1954, in Squamish BC to Norman and Shirly. Moving to Regina a short time later, Linda was generously loved by her grandparents, uncles, and aunts and close family friends. After the passing of her father in 1964, Linda’s mother moved her family of five children back to BC.

Linda remained dedicated to home in beautiful BC. She was particularly fond of the Deadman Valley, where she held many treasured memories. Linda completed high school in Lillooet BC, where she gained many life-long friends. After high school Linda lived and worked in the lower mainland, Savona, the Cariboo, and Goldbridge. While living and working in the Goldbridge area, Linda became a mother to her adoring daughter Sara; Sara’s arrival as Lillooet’s 1986 ‘New Year’s’ baby gave Linda great joy.

With baby Sara, Linda moved back to Savona and began a career that spanned over 3 decades at Ainsworth Lumber. During that time, Linda completed post secondary education, working hard as a single mother, to build career she was proud of. It was at this workplace that Linda met many more of her dear friends, including Earl, who she would eventually fall in love with and marry.

Linda and Earl thoroughly enjoyed spending as much time as they could in beautiful Tulameen BC, building a lovely cabin on the west side of the river. Linda and Earl were married in Tulameen and shared many precious memories with their grandchildren, friends, and family. At the cabin everyone was welcome, the wood stove was on, and the kitchen was always open. Linda was blessed to spend her last days at the cabin with her family and close friends.

Linda was kind, generous, and loyal. She was fiercely independent and so very determined. Her sense of humour was legendary, and she never missed an opportunity for witty banter and a cold beer.

Please join us with celebrating Linda’s life October 21, 2023 at 2:00 at the Savona Community Hall, Savona BC.
