Linda Langston(1950 - 2014)

Linda Cubbedge Langston - SAVANNAH - Linda Cubbedge Langston, 64, passed away August 18, 2014, at Hospice Savannah. She was born February 24, 1950, in Savannah, to the late Wilbur and Nira Cubbedge of Rocky Ford. She grew up on Wilmington Island, and after graduating from Savannah High School, Linda received a BA (Political Science) from Armstrong State College, and a MA (Political Science) and Ed.D (Adult Education) from The University of Georgia. She was an educator during her life working at Calvary Day School/Savannah (1973-74); Savannah State College (1974-75); and Gainesville Junior College/Gainesville College (1976-2001) [now The University of North Georgia-Gainesville].

Linda was an avid reader, animal lover, advocate for progressive ideas and a diehard supporter of The University of Georgia.
