Tribute

Margaret Yolande (Landi) Bledsoe
1933 – 2016

Landi (aged 83) passed away peacefully on Friday, November 18, in Powell River.
Landi was born, raised and spent almost her entire career in Powell River. She was one of Powell River’s quiet leaders, gently influencing many of the lives and spaces that shape our community.

Landi was a graduate of the University of British Columbia, earning two undergraduate degrees (BA, BSW) before achieving her Master of Social Work in 1963. As a social worker, Landi worked for the government of BC for many years before retiring to work in private practice. Her contributions to and connections within the Powell River community were rich and diverse, including Maranatha Prayer Group, Open Door Healing Rooms, Raging Grannies (PR Gaggle), Powell River Fine Arts Association(quilting), Powell River Child, Youth and Family Services Society (board of directors) and Malaspina Naturalists, as well as various other environmental, political, spiritual, social service and animal welfare associations and movements. Landi was equal parts artist, intellect, feminist, and advocate.

Landi is survived by her family, three generations of nieces and nephews, led by Jillian, Alison and Mitchell, her cousins and a community of friends and colleagues. We offer our thanks to the staff at Willingdon Creek Village (especially House 5) and a special note of acknowledgement and gratitude to her companion/caregiver/friend Lilia Cardoso-Gould.

Everyone who knew Landi is welcome to join us in celebrating and honouring her life:
– Monday, November 28, 2016 – Prayers will be held at 7 pm at Church of the Assumption
– Tuesday, November 29, 2016 – Funeral Mass will be held at 1:30 pm at Church of the Assumption, with burial at Powell River Regional Cemetery, and a reception to follow at Assumption Parish (St. Joseph’s) Hall.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in memory of Landi to Powell River Child, Youth and Family Services Society, prcyfss.com.
