Sussman, Linda Gayle May 23, 1943 - March 22, 2020. Preceded in death by parents, Floyd Sussman & Marion Sussman. Survived by daughter, Jennifer Ogren; Miniature Schnauzer, "Puppy"; brother, Phillip (Marsha) Sussman; niece, Molly (Patrick Goliwas) Sussman; nephew, Anthony (Alene Grossman Sussman) Sussman; great-nephews, Oliver Goliwas and Max Sussman. Linda's life was full of creativity, curiosity, and love. Her world was enriched by all of the Miniature Schnauzers she mothered through the years: Bupper, Sidney Sue, Mazik, Baby Blue and Puppy. With the taste she inherited from her mother and grandmother, she created sublime spaces and consulted on anything aesthetic. She used her gift for design, and with her daughter and partner Jennifer, started the Sussman Design Group, a successful design organization doing residential and commercial projects all across the country and abroad. Linda will be remembered for being a survivor of the human condition, her stunning sense of humor, divine cooking, generosity, strong opinions about everything, interesting perspectives and insight. She was a complicated and complex woman who loved and experienced life intensely and passionately. A recording of the service is available on the funeral home's website and Facebook page. A memorial service will be announced at a later date. Hodroff-Epstein 612-871-1234
