RICE, Linda Gail Rice - Passed away after a 2 and a half year illness Tuesday August 2, 2022.
She survived a terminal diagnosis for so long, massively exceeding Doctors' expectations, in large part because of the loving support of her friends, family, and caregivers.
Linda, an avid scuba diver and traveler, had a long and successful life with jobs at Pitftield McKay, Ronald McDonald's Children's Charities and Starfield Consulting.
She was also the president of the North Toronto Business Professional Women's group and later the entire BPW Ontario chapter, advocating on a vast array of women's issues
