In Celebration of

Linda Kay

December 3, 1951 -  October 12, 2018

It is with a broken heart that we said goodbye to Linda Kay on October 12th, 2018.

She passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family. She was a true pioneer in the journalism world, as well as a constant source of inspiration to all those around her. Her words will continue to resonate with family, friends, and so many students who sat in her classroom throughout her teaching career.

The celebration of Linda's life will be held on Sunday October 14th at 3pm at the Mount Royal Funeral Complex, 1297 Chemin de la Foret, Outremont, H2V 2P9, 514-279-6540.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Cedars Cancer foundation would be appreciated.

The world will be a far less interesting place without Linda introducing us to people, places and experiences through the exquisite magic of her words. Thankfully, she left us all richer for being a part of our lives. Love and miss you dearest friend. K

Linda Kay was one of the most amazing women I have had the pleasure to know, to work with, and to observe. She was beautiful inside and out, she mentored her students brilliantly, with compassion, rigour, and sincere interest. She was one of the finest journalists and writers, and I was privileged to have worked with her for so many years at Concordia. My heartfelt condolences to all of her family, this is indeed a very very sad time. She will be missed by so many.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Linda's death. She brought so much to her fellow faculty and to her students - infallibly open and caring, genuinely caring. May she rest in peace and may her loved ones take comfort in her life so richly and generously lived.
