Linda Maureen Muirhead
“The Book Lady”
Linda passed away June 29th, 2012 at Hospice House, her family by her side.
Born on June 26th, 1952 in Fort William, ON, Linda grew up in Edmonton, AB. As her family had spent many holidays in BC, in the late 70’s Linda made her way to Vancouver. There she worked at The Cave Nightclub. Living in the West-End, she loved spending her spare time at Stanley Park, The Aquarium and walking the Sea Wall. Linda went back to college where she studied accounting. In 1986, Linda became ill and needing the support of family, moved to Vernon. Always an avid reader, Linda’s passion for books, antiques and unique valuables flourished. She spent the remainder of her life buying and selling, operating Rags & Bones Antiquarian Books. Her wealth of knowledge will be sorely missed.
Linda was predeceased by her daughter Kerri and father Bill. She is survived by her daughter Alex, mother Jean, sisters Eileen Thurston and Dru (Gavin) Edmiston, Aunt Tommy Douglas, nieces Laurie and Robyn, nephews Scott, David and Gordon, and special friend Taylor Sanders.
