Linda Lusk

May 8, 1939 — August 13, 2021

Linda Kay Lusk went to join the Lord on August 13, 2021. Born May 8, 1939 in Abilene, Texas to J.T. and Oleta Darsey, she became a Midland girl at age 10. She thrived there with her parents and her brother David, and met her soon-to-be husband Doug, on a meet-the-new-employee tour of offices, the day she joined Standard Oil Company of Texas as a secretary. A mutual attraction was instantaneous and they were married October 1964. They celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary October 2014, and had reached their 56th year together. Linda was very active in various pursuits as she and Doug moved around the country. She was always an involved parent in her children's schools in Roswell, in Houston and in Denver. She not only was employed as a Legal Secretary in Walnut Creek, California, but was a very active volunteer in the children's schools. After Doug's retirement from Chevron Corporation in November 1995, Linda became a long-term member of the Kerrville, TX Garden Club, including serving as President and as a member of the Board of Directors of the Kerrville Concert Series. Linda was also an active volunteer at their church. Though she enjoyed all of these tasks and did very well at each of them, her main focus throughout her married life clearly was on her family, and especially upon her children Suzanne and Jeffrey, and her grandchildren. All knew her as ''Mom'' and ''Gran,'' and Mom/Gran remained vitally interested and involved in their lives until her very last day. In their later years, Doug and Linda joined Trinity Baptist Church where they found enjoyment, fulfillment and comfort as members of the loving, caring church family that drew them there. In his retirement, Doug has spent time writing poetry. He would like to share this poem which was a favorite of his beloved wife: Sleep Well To someone that I've known so long, The one that caused my heart to sing, I offer this oft-spoken song And treasure what the morning brings. I'm grateful for the love she's shown, She gave her heart and captured mine, And joyfully I made it known I'd love her till the end of time. We could not guess how life would go But hand in hand we journeyed on, Content that passing time would show The love we shared could keep us strong. There is no life that's trouble free And it's been true of ours and yet, What we have shared it seems to me, Held love and joy and few regrets. I whisper as we end each day The words I've said since we were young; To tell her as she drifts away, Sleep well until the morning comes. Linda was preceded in death by her parents J.T. and Oleta Darsey, and by her brother David Darsey. She is survived by her loving husband, Doug, son Jeffrey and wife Kathleen, daughter Suzanne and husband John Miles, grandchildren Jesse Muth, Christopher Miles, Chastity Miles, Emily Schwartz, and Erin and husband Mason Wheeler, great-grandson, Camden, many cousins, friends and other family that will miss her greatly. Memorial services will be held at 11 AM, Saturday, August 21, 2021 at Trinity Baptist Church officiated by Rev. John Wheat, with interment to be in Resthaven Cemetery, Midland, TX.
