Lynda “Spiritdove” Imburgia

Lynda “Spiritdove” Imburgia of Whidbey Island, Langley, WA, passed away in her home surrounded by family on Thursday April 12, 2018 at the age of 68.

Lynda was born to parents Arthur and Natalie Nelson on November 28, 1949 in Tacoma Washington. She married her sweetheart Danny Imburgia, in 1971. The couple has three children Alyssa Reid, Amber O’Brien, and Daryl Imburgia, and eleven grandchildren. She is also survived by her three sisters Lori Morrone, Leigh Cheney, and Lisa Lambert and their families.

Lynda spent many years running the first Whidbey wild animal clinic from her home, where she would rehabilitate sick and/or injured animals back to health before returning them to the wild. She ran a nature day camp for kids where she taught them about native plants and animals in our area. She spent time in her younger years working in special education, where she would shower special needs children with love.

Lynda was very loved and will be greatly missed. She will always be remembered by her incredibly strong faith in Jesus, her huge heart, her beautiful smile and her love of the earth and all its creatures.

The family will hold a memorial for Lynda at a later date. Family and friends are encouraged to share memories and condolences at www.whidbeymemorial.com.
