LINDA GALE MINTENKO
On March 10, 2020 the heavens opened their doors to our sister/daughter/aunt Linda into eternal peace.
Born July 7, 1962 in Birtle, MB Linda Gale Mintenko became part of the family of Raymond & Irene Mintenko joining brothers Doug, Bob, Dale and to come one year later a sister Cindy. Linda is predeceased by father Ray (June 6, 2019) and is survived by Mother Irene, brothers Doug (Karen) Bob (Jane Ann), Dale (Kelly), and sister Cindy (Brad). Linda is also survived by nephews Quinton, Jason, Chris, Kevin & Kaiden as well as niece Jasmine and 8 great nephews and nieces.
Linda attended elementary school first in Shoal Lake, MB then in Thompson where she continued her education graduating in 1980 from RD Parker Collegiate. During her years in Thompson, Linda enjoyed many sports including baseball, figure skating and became an accomplished Ringette player.
Linda later ventured from Thompson out west living in BC first in Vancouver, Ladner, Smithers and Richmond before moving to Vancouver Island and eventually settling in Victoria where she owned and operated her own floral shop making people around her happy with the beautiful masterpieces that she created with her skilled hands and beautiful flowers.
Linda always enjoyed the outdoors whether fishing on the lake, camping on an island, or relaxing at the cabin. Linda was an incredible cook and spent the past 5 years living with her parents making meals and tending to their needs. Linda also leaves behind best friend Jake who was with her as she said good bye to this chapter.
