Linda Mae Filusch Obituary
Filusch, Linda Mae (nee Alarid)

Linda Mae Filusch (nee Alarid), age 83, "Dancing Queen," consummate hostess, and all-around classy lady, passed away on Friday, May 6, 2016.

Born in Albuquerque on September 1, 1932, Linda made lifelong friends at St. Mary's High School and graduated in 1950. She met Hubert J. Filusch and, 29 days later, a terrifying ride to Sandia Peak ended in a proposal. Linda wed "Herb" on November 3, 1956, at Sandia Base Chapel.

Linda generously donated her time to community service and others in need. She was a devoted daughter and caregiver to her parents Felipe and Annie Alarid, the loyal sister of Phil Alarid, and a loving, nurturing mother who was adored by her daughters Lorianna, Leslee and Lynn. She was Nana to grandsons Jack, Clint and Sam. Her cousins Rebecca, Rosemary and Priscilla were like sisters to her.

For the last 12 years, Linda fiercely defied the effects of Alzheimer's Disease, always sharing her warmth and sweet smile, remaining a joy to those around her. Her radiant spirit sparkled until the end.

The family will privately celebrate Linda's beautiful and precious life.
