Linda Ruth Brasuell

September 30, 1948 — October 31, 2023

 

 

Linda Ruth Brasuell, 75, was born September 30, 1948 in Galena Park, TX and passed away on October 31, 2023 in Oklahoma City, OK.

Beloved wife of Troy Lee Brasuell, loving mother to Deanna Boston and Lee Brasuell, and their spouses, Kyle Boston and Meghan Brasuell, doting grammie to Ethan Boston, Clark Brasuell, and Derrick Brasuell. She was also a beloved cousin, aunt, and friend to anyone who had the honor of making her acquaintance.

Preceded in death by her parents Estelle Brown and Raymond Brown Sr.; and siblings Raymond Brown Jr., Larry Brown, Donald Brown.

Survived by: Troy Lee Brasuell Sr. (husband); Deanna Boston (daughter) and Kyle Boston (son-in-law); Troy Lee Brasuell Jr. (son) and Meghan Brasuell (daughter-in-law); and three beloved grandchildren who meant everything to her: Ethan Boston, Clark Brasuell, and Derrick Brasuell.

Linda married Troy in 1969 in Galena Park at the Second Baptist Church and shortly thereafter left to live in Okinawa, Japan where Troy served in the United States Army.  They moved back to the United States and lived in El Paso, TX before settling in Oklahoma City, OK to raise their family.

Linda was kind, forgiving, and generous. She never met a stranger and could strike up a conversation with anyone she encountered. Once you got to know her, you were showered with her kind words and sometimes special treats. Just a week before her passing, she found out the favorite candy of each of her physical therapists and had Troy take her to get all of their favorite candies to share the week before Halloween. Her generosity was evident through these thoughtful gifts she carefully chose for everyone, the time she dedicated to volunteering, and the moments she spent genuinely listening. Even when she didn't have much, she always found a way to give to others. 

Linda was actively involved in her children's schools, taking on various roles including homeroom mom and President of the PTA. She also dedicated her time to organizing school carnivals and after-school activities. Her true passion was centered on serving children and being close to her own children, and she eventually transformed this passion into a fulfilling career that spanned 32 years at Oklahoma City Public Schools.

During Linda's remarkable 32-year career, she worked as manager at various cafeteria sites throughout the district. Her culinary talents were well-known, as she often personally purchased ingredients to bake homemade cookies for students, teachers, and staff. If you expressed a preference for a particular treat, you could always count on it being readily available the next time you saw her. Linda's legacy was one of selfless service and a steadfast commitment to the well-being of the children and others in her community.  In 2014, she commenced her tenure as the manager for James Monroe Elementary School, where she made numerous life-long friends. 

Linda's reputation for unwavering determination and her willingness to assist anyone in need were well-known. Her selfless dedication did not go unnoticed, and she received recognition from both her colleagues and the community. In 2008, Linda was honored with the Stars of Education Super Support Staff Award for Oklahoma City Public Schools. Then, on May 1, 2014, she received a Governor's Commendation in recognition of her remarkable commitment as the cafeteria manager at James Monroe Elementary School. Linda's impact on the lives of students, teachers, and staff was profound, and her legacy of service continues to inspire others

Without a doubt, her most cherished accomplishment and greatest joy was being Grammie to Ethan, Clark, and Derrick. She beamed with pride every time she spoke about her 'boys' and dedicated the last 19 years of her life to loving and rejoicing in the most important title she ever held, ‘Grammie’.

A memorial service will be held at Corbett Funeral and Cremation, 807 West Wilshire Blvd., on November 7, 2023, at 10:00 a.m., and she will be laid to rest at Fort Gibson National Cemetery. A come-and-go celebration of her life will take place from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at her daughter's home.

In lieu of flowers, the family has established a memorial fund in her name at the Oklahoma City Community Foundation that will recognize support staff at Oklahoma City Public Schools and other charitable causes important to Linda.  You can contribute to the Linda Brasuell Memorial Fund at donate.occf.org or directly link https://bit.ly/LindaBrasuell.  You can also mail donations to:
