Linda Ruth Lambourne – 1949-2018

| Obituaries | April 19, 2018

Santa Clarita resident Linda Ruth Lambourne lost a two-year battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) on Friday, March 23, 2018. Considered a “great lady and a friend to so many” by her loved ones, she passed away at her home in Canyon Country, which she shared for 40 years with her husband, Steve, by her side. Linda was born in Van Nuys, California on December 10, 1949, to parents Bruce and Ruth Cramer; her father had his own lumber business. She graduated from Simi Valley High School in 1967 and soon relocated to the San Fernando Valley, where she worked in computer programming and sales. Linda met her loving husband Steve in mid-1970 when they lived in the same apartment building. Steve knew a good thing when he saw it and they exchanged wedding vows on September 26, 1970. Linda and Steve moved to Canyon Country in 1978; they found the perfect home in Sand Canyon where they have remained all these years. Soon it was time to enlarge the family and they were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Lindsey and Angie. Linda wasted no time getting involved with various charities and local activities. It seems she loved to volunteer and made friends with so many. The many programs she was part of include: Brownies leader, Sulphur Springs PTA Holiday Store and Halloween Carnival, SCV Historical Society, Henry Mayo Newhall Hospital Guild, Safe Rides, and so many more. One of Linda’s friends said, “I remember Linda for her kindness, her humor and great spirit, and for her creative ideas.” Many have benefitted in Santa Clarita due to Linda’s hard work and dedication to this community. Linda’s professional life in Santa Clarita primarily surrounded the local political scene. She was a field representative for Congressman Howard “Buck” McKeon, a district director for Assemblyman Scott Wilk, and assisted members of the Santa Clarita City Council. For her personal enjoyment, it was all about family. Linda loved to go house boating, writing books for her grandchildren, customizing gift wrapping paper, participating in the chili cook-off, turtle races and spending time with her friends at bunco and book club. The really special times were sitting on the patio with a glass of her favorite wine and her husband, Steve. Say her loved ones, “Linda, we all will miss you and know that you were loved by so many.” She is survived by her husband, Steve, daughters Lindsey and Angie, and five grandchildren. A memorial service for Linda will be held at the Sand Canyon Country Club, 27734 Sand Canyon Road in Canyon Country, on April 21, 2018 from 4-6 p.m.
