We Say Goodbye To Linda Tobias
With sadness but the certain hope of eternal life and the knowledge of a life very well lived, St Thomas said goodbye to our sister in Christ Linda Tobias. Linda was a long time member of the church and was its first recipient of The Order of the Diocese of New Westminster. Her list of accomplishments both here in the church and in the broader community were extensive and inspiring. She was a mentor to many of St Thomas’ youth over the years and was also the coordinator of our overseas Foster Children Program.
More than anything though, she was a much beloved mother, grandmother and great- grandmother of Marian, Rowena, Fred, Cheryl and their families. The funeral service was held on Thursday, April 28 and a wonderful reception followed in the Church Upper Hall. Many thanks to all who helped out with the reception.
We will miss Linda greatly and our prayers are with her family and friends. A copy of Patrick’s sermon for Linda can be found in our sermons section of the site.
