Linda Fay Pashley was born on May 15, 1947, in Portland, Oregon to Wilbur and Betty Lou Bostwick. After the passing of her mother, she was adopted by Jean Lucielle Cannard. Mainly raised in North Portland, Linda was the second oldest of 6 siblings: Brothers James, Michael, Tom, and Daniel, and one sister, Pamela. She attended St. Cecelia Grade School and graduated from North Catholic High School.
On May 3, 1969, Linda married Willam Bruce Pashley whom she met while growing up a few houses away. They were married for 42 years before his passing in 2011. While they were married, they enjoyed gathering with friends and family, camping, sailing, and spending time at the beach.
Linda had a full and active life, participating in her children’s school activities at every age and later running a busy flower business where she provided arrangements for many weddings and funerals in her community. While she would rarely be seen attending mass, she was always behind the scenes at the church, volunteering her time and talents, eventually becoming the leader of the flower committee. She was always engaged in assisting St. Vincent De Paul.
Linda was the most giving, engaged, and caring person. Always willing to do things for others, she was great with all the friends and family details, while never being intrusive. Always true to herself, never afraid to tell you how she felt, and 100% straight forward. All these things combined are what made Linda loved by so many people.
Linda passed due to complications from cancer treatment. She is survived by her children, Heather Pashley and her partner, John-Charles Davis, Jason Pashley and daughter-in-law, Aimee Stone, grandchildren Lucie Pashley and Kyle Stone, and great-granddaughter Penelope Stone.
