Obituary

Linhofer, Andrea
Our dear Andrea passed away suddenly on October 2, 2020 at the age of 51. She leaves behind her parents, Margaritha and Siegfried, her Opa Heinz (pre-deceased Anneliese), her brother Tyson (Julie), her nephews, Ethan and Sam, niece Rosie, and a number of cherished friends, along with her beloved furry companion Georgia.
Over the years Andrea worked as a Chartered Accountant which led her to positions in Kitchener, Toronto, Barbados and London, England.
Andrea was fiercely independent and highly accomplished, she had many things to be proud of and was always willing to share her insights, skills and experiences. Andrea was also a world traveler who shared her favourite places with whomever she happened to be on the adventure with. And when she did, new adventures always resulted. Fond memories of Paris, Barcelona, Iceland, London, Berlin, Vienna, Edinburgh, Morocco, Salt Lake City Olympics, Barbados, Las Vegas and so many more abound. She thoroughly enjoyed and loved sharing her travel stories with all of her family and friends.
Along with being a Daughter, a Grand-daughter, Sister, Niece, Aunt and GodMother, she was also an Accountant, Auditor, Advisor, Regulatory Specialist, Scholar, Listener, Teacher, Coach, and Best Friend. She will be greatly missed by all, and will be held closely in our hearts. Private Cremation has taken place.
In honour of Andrea, donations can be made to SickKids Foundation, Kitchener-Waterloo Humane Society or CAMH Foundation (cards available at the Henry Walser Funeral Home, 519-749-8467).

My sincerest condolences. I worked under Andrea in CIBC only for a few months due to reorg in the company then. I remember her as a quiet, hardworking, dedicated and smart manager. I'm sure that she will be missed.

My deepest condolences to Andrea's family and friends. It was such a shock for me to wrap my head around last week when I heard the tragic news of Andrea's passing.
I have been reading through old emails that she and I have exchanged over the years after she left CIBC, and finding comfort in the memories it brought back. Regrettably, the last email that we exchanged was way back in March 2016, where we were arranging to meet for a coffee in Toronto before she flew to Dallas, and then she was heading to Iceland at the end of the month, and my reply to her was "Now that's the Andrea I know & love - always exploring the world! Good for you, should be a great trip."

Boy did she love to travel! I always enjoyed hearing of her trips and seeing the photos of places that I knew I probably would not get the chance to visit myself.
She definitely lived life to its fullest.
My friendship with Andrea began in 2002 when I started working in her department at CIBC. She quickly went from just being my boss, to being a really good friend and mentor. I have learned a lot from her over the years and will always be thankful that our paths crossed for as long as they did.
Back in 2002 she was living in a condo at 10 Queen's Quay and I lived in the opposite tower at 10 Yonge St. Then as she bought her house at Yonge & Lawrence I bought mine in Whitby. Then she got Georgia, and shortly afterwards she visited me and my new puppy, Jeniffer - a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel. We chatted alot about our "babies" and shared photos at work.

If there was a planned fire drill at the office Andrea, being a director, would get tipped-off ahead of time and she would thankfully save me the long walk down 40+ flights of stairs by suggesting 15 minutes prior to the drill that we go downstairs to grab a coffee at Starbucks and work on our department's performance reviews....or something else work-related ;)

We would go for dinners with colleagues and occasionally I would drive into the city on a weekend for lunch and to go shopping. Andrea introduced me to Josef Seibel footwear...I still have a pair of sandals from one of our outings!
We also went to the flagship store opening of Roots, oh and of course the One of a Kind Show.....!

I was so pleased for Andrea when she told me that she was going to work in London in 2011- I had immigrated from England- - and I knew that she would absolutely love London life and culture and its museums and art galleries and the 5 airports that made it so easy to just hop on a plane and explore Europe on mini-breaks.
I then set to work on planning a trip home with my husband, Michael, and our then 7 year old daughter, Jacqueline, that same summer so that I could spend a couple of days in London with Andrea (we went to Madam Tussaud's and Covent Garden) before we parted ways and I headed up to Scotland to visit family. I remember we visited just after Tyson and Siegfried did their trip over to London and Vienna. She was so looking forward to their visit and enjoyed sharing some of the photos from that trip.

I also remember the fun time I had visiting for a weekend shortly after she bought her home in Kitchener. She was the perfect host and tour guide. Obviously we went shopping again! This time to St. Jacobs, just before Xmas. I bought so much food at the British store :)
Such great memories!
Andrea was always so helpful and ready to offer up advice when needed. A great friend and mentor and I will truly miss her.
Rest in peace my friend.
XoXo
Gerry Farrugia, Michael Azzarello & Jacqueline

My deepest regrets goes out to Andrea’s family and loved ones. Andrea was an extremely kind and caring person who I had the privilege to work with at Arthur Andersen many years ago. She always had a smile on her face and was genuine and considerate when dealing with others. Sincerely Oded Levi.

I was lucky enough to work with Andrea in London. We bonded over a love of dogs, photography and London. She was lovely and I am so sorry to hear of your loss.
