It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our strong wife, mother, sister, grandma, great-grandma, and friend to so many. Linda passed away at the age of 76 on July 9, 2021. Linda passed peacefully at Sagewood in Strathmore surrounded by her family. Linda grew up in Cluny where she later met the love of her life, Bill Kalbhen. Bill and Linda married in Rockyford at St. Rita’s church, and shortly after started building their life. Together they built the Kalbhen farm (Sturgeon River Ranch) just outside of Rockyford. They blessed each other with 5 children and celebrated 54 years of marriage together.
Some of Linda’s interests included, going on cruises and holidays, baking, shopping and visiting neighbours. Most importantly though, she loved spending time with family. Linda never missed a family event and was known to never complain. Linda was one of the strongest persons we knew and would always be the first one to volunteer for events.
Linda is predeceased by her daughter Tanya. She is survived by her husband Bill, children Margo (Mike) Comstock, Warren (Tyla) Kalbhen, Stacey (Shawn) Wilson and Erica Kalbhen. Grandchildren Amy, Brooke, Taneil, Toni, Billi, Jayse, Kadin, Matt, Joel, Mitchell, Meleah and
A funeral service for Linda will be held on Friday, July 16, 2021 at St Rita’s Catholic Church, Rockyford at 11:00am.
