February 6, 2023 - Calgary, Alberta


Linda Wolstencroft beloved wife of Michel Poisson of Calgary, AB, passed away on Monday, February 6, 2023 at the age of 59 years.


Linda was born in Vancouver, BC, on May 14, 1963 and she moved to Calgary, AB in 2015.  Linda married Michel in 2000 after being together since 1994.


She  graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, and was a member of the Association of Professional of Engineer of Ontario and completed her Master of Business Administration from York University in 1993. Worked in the Aerospace and Defence sector for many years. After which she started her own Consulting Company in Business Development helping many different Aerospace and Defence Companies win contracts.


Linda accomplished much through her life and was particularly proud of having been granted Affiliate Grade 10 membership in the Alberta Registered Music Teacher’s Association.


Linda loved walks in nature and had a deep passion for classical piano, spending numerous hours playing every day. She enjoyed many trips around the globe and locally like Banff and Osoyoos.


Linda ’s favourite prayer was The Serenity Prayer. 


God grant me the serenity To accept the things I cannot change; Courage to change the things I can; And wisdom to know the difference. Living one day at a time; Enjoying one moment at a time; Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace; Taking, as He did, this sinful world As it is, not as I would have it; Trusting that He will make all things right If I surrender to His Will; So that I may be reasonably happy in this life And supremely happy with Him Forever and ever in the next.

She will be most remembered for her amazingly kind heart, gorgeous smile and total devotion to her family.


Besides her loving husband, Linda is survived by her  three sons, Eric Poisson-Michelle Kerr of Ottawa,  Jacob Wolstencroft of London, England, and  Trevor Poisson-Chantel Stanley of Calgary ; six grandchildren, Haileigh , Noah, Lucas, Marley and Mack in Ottawa and Katrina in Calgary.
