Obituary

Linda Kay Sulser, beloved wife, sister, daughter, and friend, entered into God's fullness, light, and unending love on October 1, 2019. This fullness of God's light and love Linda knew well and reflected throughout her entire life. She knew she was God's child, and she reminded all those who crossed her path that they were God's children as well. Linda's light, love, joy, kindness, wit, humor, vitality, and sense of justice touched hundreds of lives for the better.

Linda was born December 13, 1953 in Mineral Wells, Texas, the loving daughter of James and Adel Morrissey and sister to her beloved brother, Jon Morrissey, currently of Granby, Colorado. She adored her parents and brother as they adored her. As a child, Linda lived in Germany, Missouri, and Texas, spending the majority of her childhood in the Windcrest neighborhood of San Antonio. Linda's roots in San Antonio run deep as part of the Eisenhauer family.

Linda met the love of her life, Larry, on a blind date arranged by his grandmother. This past July they celebrated thirty years of marriage. They were one another's best friends and each other's biggest supporters. Those who witnessed the love and happiness they shared often commented that they were meant for each other. Their love runs true and deep and survives far beyond death and the grave.

Linda was a proud graduate of Texas Lutheran College and UTSA where she obtained bachelor's and master's degrees in the liberal arts and elementary education. Linda loved children and dedicated her life to teaching and mentoring, inspiring generations of students through her creativity, insight, intellect, dedication, and compassion. She taught for most of her thirty-year career at Windcrest Elementary which she attended as a child, spending the last seven years teaching special education.

Linda's gifts in the arts included music, painting, and writing. She sang beautifully, attended college on a scholarship for music, published a children's book about Fiesta in San Antonio, and painted several gorgeous works throughout her life. Her creative gifts carried over into her love for holidays and celebrations. Her floral arrangements, decorations, Christmas cookies, carol singing, and keen eye for design meant her loved ones were surrounded by joy, comfort, grace, and goodness as they shared in celebrating with her.

Linda exhibited her faith in all she did, and she nurtured that faith and the faith of others at Christ Lutheran Church, San Antonio. She volunteered for countless ministries there including: Worship Assistants, Immigration Team, GROW Team, Mission & Outreach Team, and Small Group Ministry. Her primary interests were service to others and compassion for all. She was a member at CLC for thirty years, working on staff as the Office Administrator for the last twelve years. In that role, she touched many members with her welcoming spirit and caring concern.

Linda's sense of compassion extended to all God's creatures, and she routinely picked up lost and wayward canine souls, helping them to find their way home. If they didn't have a home, not to worry. Linda rescued two of her beloved dogs, Wiley and Mazie, directly from the streets and nursed them back to health, giving them a forever home.

Linda touched everyone's heart with her kindness, compassion, and zestful spirit for life, most of all her loving husband, Larry, who is eternally grateful. Many lives were bettered by her graciousness. Linda is survived by her husband, Larry, her brother, Jon Morrissey and wife, Colleen, and first cousins, Mike Schwartz and Nick Schwartz. A visitation and memorial service will be held at Christ Lutheran Church, 6720 Broadway. Visitation: Friday, October 11, 6:00 to 8:00 p.m.; Memorial Service: Saturday, October 12, 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Christ Lutheran Church or the Animal Defense League.
