Linda (Gwin) Cusimano

Linda (Gwin) Cusimano, 77, passed away on February 28, 2018, lovingly surrounded by her family. She was born September 14, 1940 in Connersville, Indiana, to John and Joan Gwin.

She is survived by her sister Betty Lansdowne (husband John); three children, Curt (wife, Regina), Kim (husband, Phil), and Louis (wife, Lisa); seven beautiful grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

She graduated from DePauw University with a Bachelor’s Degree in French and a minor in History. Later, she attended USC, graduating with a Master’s Degree in Library Sciences and became a passionate, lifelong SC football fan! She retired from Sandra Laboratories in 2007 after seventeen years of exceptional service in the national interest.

Family describes her as a well-educated, no-nonsense, fun-loving woman who loved adventure and travel. She was generous, gracious, and encouraged her children and grandchildren to live fully and without fear. She had a strong will that, in the end, helped her fight the disease that eventually led to her death. Grandchildren found her to be a loving, dedicated, and generous “Meema” who was the first to support their sports, music, and other activities. She was honestly loved by anyone who met her.

Cremation has taken place. A Celebration of her Life will take place later in the spring.

If you wish to do so, please consider a donation in her name to: Christina Kent Early Childhood Center, 423 3rd St. SW, Albuquerque, NM 87102; St. Martin’s Hospitality Center, 1201 3rd St. NW, Albuquerque, NM 87102; or a charity of your choice.
