OBITUARY

Linda Sue Hull

July 1, 1937June 10, 2020

Memorial Service for Linda Sue will be held Saturday, June 13, 2020, 2 pm, at Grace Church, 7393 Pearl Road, Middleburg Heights, OH 44130. There will be no casket and burial will be in Oklahoma. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to the Cleveland Pregnancy Center in Linda’s honor where she was a volunteer counselor to girls in crisis for 25 years at 3924 Lorain Avenue, Cleveland, OH 44113.

Linda Sue Hull (Wilgus) 82, of Middleburg Heights, went to be with her Savior on Wednesday, June 10, 2020. She courageously battled cancer for 5 years with such grace that many did not know. Even two weeks before she passed Linda was taking walks around the block in her neighborhood.

A Texan, Linda‘s family moved around the South settling in Tulsa. She attended University of Oklahoma and University of Tulsa for 4 years, becoming Sweetheart of Sigma Chi Fraternity (enabling Don to become president riding on her popularity). Although she grew up going to church, at the age of 26 Linda became a Christian. She was transformed into such a winsome follower of Jesus that Don also took that road 2 years later. They moved to Pittsburgh where they lived for 12 years and then came to Cleveland in 1984. Linda loved God, people, and life itself. She served others joyfully with all her heart, counseling young women in God‘s ways, loving each one in her own family, and making others feel as if they belonged too. Linda was always quick with a smile and practical help, offering to drive, babysit, sew, cook, teach, and even hosting visitors in her home, up to a year or more.

She will be greatly missed by many, none more than her husband of 61 years, Don. Remaining relatives include her fun sister, Peggy Wymore (and John), her loving son, Scott (and Susan with their 3 children, their spouses and 7 grandchildren), her favorite daughter Gini Cressman (and Tom with their 4 sons).

Linda Sue deeply impacted my life. Shortly after becoming a Christian, on June 14,1978, she began to meet with me for weekly Bible study and discipleship. We met every Wednesday morning and did Bible study and listened to Dobson, Swindoll and other tapes. She talked with me and counseled me through my early years as a Christian and laid for me a Godly foundation that has kept me walking with the Lord for these past 42 years. I am forever indebted to her for the time she invested in me.

I truly am so saddened to have lost Linda Sue. She was a gem. A real gem. I pray she was welcomed by those she loved who already reside in heaven with the Lord and that on our day of arrival there, God will say to her, "Linda Sue, your dear friend "...." is coming today. Greet them at the gate." As sad as I am, that sweet little lady with the sweet drawl of the south lives on in my memory as she did a few months ago when we were last able to gather as a small group. "There was a holy hush all over as she walked into the room. As she stood before Him face to face, she was GLORIOUSLY made new." 'Til we meet again. Love you, dear one. - Pat Senkar

We mourn the loss of our dear friend Linda Sue.
We met her when we were new to Cleveland in 1996. She opened the door and her heart for us. We became friends ever since.
She introduced us to friends in the apartments and took us to Grace Church. I remember her visit when my kids were born,,, The last time we got together was in 2006 at Fairfax Virginia. Most of all, I remember the Christmas we spent together.
Thank you for the friendship. We will miss you forever.

Don and Family,

I am sorry for your loss. I was blessed to meet Linda Sue at the Cleveland Prayer Breakfast. My daughter got to meet her and Linda went right into engaging her about her life and plans for the future; offering wisdom on waiting and finding a husband. I know it was a divine appointment and I thank God my daughter got at least to talk with her for 10 minutes. She indeed did not waste time.

My prayers are with you all.

We remember meeting Sue at Grace after Sunday service with Don. She truly embodied the Holy Spirit then and now.
Don was always a steadfast husband. He is always a bright light of encouragement for brothers at the Friday fellowship at La Centre in Westlake. We extend my condolences to him and the Hull family and will have to save a hug for him at our next meeting.
Love,
Karen and Allen Porter

Linda Sue was truly a Proverbs 31 woman who loved God and loved others. She always greeted you with a warm welcoming smile that made you feel like you were at home. Her words of wisdom and encouragement were always right on point with what you needed to hear. Her inner strength and fortitude was most evident in her constant sharing of the Gospel and testimony with others. I venture to say that she has shared her testimony at more public gatherings than anyone I know personally. When needed she even used words...

When I think of Linda Sue, her life, and the profound impact she had on people I think of two sections of scripture that she lived by:

1 Corinthians 2:2 comes to mind: "For I resolve to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.

Matthew 25: 34-36: "Then the King will say to those on his right, 'come you who are blessed by Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.'

Linda Sue loved in an uncommon way, according to scripture... something we frequently fall short of because the cost is perceived to be so high. She continuously laid down her life for others. In doing so she blessed me and many others. Linda Sue also challenged me and all of us to love better, to love like Jesus loved.

While I mourn the loss and tears come to my eyes for those closest to her, I feel a sense of happiness for her, knowing that;
"...no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, and what no human mind has conceived" are the things that God has prepared for Linda Sue.

My love and blessing to Don and the Family

Dear Don and Scott and Gini,

Knowing each of you (and some of your children) has been a blessing and delight, and I am so grateful to God and to you for sharing your lives with me.

Who can described Linda Sue? She was a unique individual imprinted with the stamp and seal of God.

Years ago, when I was a single mom, she sustained me and my children with physical and spiritual food. She introduced me to plant proteins, and "fie-bore." She insisted on my trust in God, and my obedience to Him.

She shared stories that rested on my heart like a gentle kiss: "It is now Day 14, Mrs. Wilgus, you may sit up and dangle your feet over the bed." (Written to her mother by the hospital staff when she was born.)

How can this precious woman be missing from our lives?

My love and sympathy go out to you, her family. We know that she is alive in Christ, and experiencing the blessings of eternity with God--that which is only a promise and hope to us remaining. But, oh! How we will miss her.

God be with each of us in our time moving forward. God hold, God comfort, God grant peace, in the name of Christ our Lord. Amen
