  • A Great Friend and Golfer!

    Patty Lee


    "Linda was a great, generous friend and lived an authentic life. She created such a welcoming friendship that it allowed her friends to be their true self in all ways. I have such a huge hole in my heart and my world is not as bright without her. I feel privileged to have witnessed the beautiful soul that was Linda Herman and also to have had a ringside seat in the life and love she shared with Pat."

She always had this fabulous smile and her door was always open to hear "what went wrong during your shift" She was extremely supportive and had this contagious laugh. RIP Linda "

    "I was so saddened to read of Linda's passing! I have been fortunate enough to be a friend, colleague and student of Linda's over many years. We worked together as RNs in emergency at MSA, then I was lucky enough to have her as my clinical instructor during my BCIT emergency nursing program , then back to colleagues in FH as our careers changed. I will fondly remember the mentorship, support and laughter we shared. Pat and family...I'm so sorry for your loss"

    "I was fortunate to get to know Linda when she was a student of mine in the BCIT ER program. She as a keen and curious learner and a delight to work with. We later became colleagues when she taught in the ER program - she was loved by students and well respected by her peers. So glad to hear of your ongoing successes and sad to hear of your passing. Thank you for being my friend and an excellent nurse and role model to nurses and student nurses all over. You will be missed by many!"

  • An Amazing Nurse and Leader

    Teresa Place


    "I had the pleasure of working at Lions Gate Hospital at the same time Linda was the Director of Emergency Nursing. She would light up the halls and provide sound logical solutions in a steady manner no matter how stressful the situation. Her grace under fire and professionalism was truly unique."
