Please join us in remembering the remarkable life of our most beloved Linda Langsted, who passed away surrounded by her family on August 15, 2021.

From her long career as a Diabetes Nurse Educator to her constant role as an involved and caring mother, Linda's compassion and natural role as a caretaker made the lives of everyone around her better. She loved helping people, which was at the core of everything she did.

Linda met her husband, high school sweetheart Jim Langsted, in Bellevue, Washington. They lived a life of adventure, from joining ski patrol together as teenagers, to traveling around the world, to packing up and moving out to the mountains of Colorado to build a home and life as a married couple. 45 wonderful years of marriage and a family of well-loved kids and cats later, she taught us so much about loving and supporting unconditionally. She also taught us the value of joy and silliness in daily life, and we dearly loved the spontaneous, light-hearted songs and dances she made up to bring light and laughter to the day.

Linda was a strong leader, and could always be found at the heart of her family's activities, organizing, problem solving, communicating, planning activities, and boosting people up. She was proud of her family, who were the center of her world, and her humor and deep compassion lifted us and carried us through life's hard times.

Her creativity was a blessing in all her pursuits and passions. A skilled seamstress and Costumer, she helped costume hundreds of kids in the arts over the years, teaching them along the way to love their craft and take pride in how they presented themselves. She loved musical theatre, and traveled all over the country to see her kids performing and, of course, helping out with the costumes.

The homes of her friends and family are filled with her beautiful handmade quilts, pets around Colorado wear her doggy bandanas, and her favorite cat adoption shelter was able to raise crucial operating funds from her line of handmade "Lavender Cats." Her home, gardens, and sanctuary for wildlife are a haven that echo with her memory and her love forever. The wild turkeys, birds, and other wildlife of Coal Creek Canyon will also miss her dearly.

Linda is survived by her husband Jim, son Evan (Meriah) Langsted, daughter Abby Langsted, sisters Celeste (Dan) Lavender and Denise (Brian) Baker, brother Brian (Lynn) Kuske, and cats Lucy, Norah, and Maisie. We will miss her more than words can say, and know that she will be with us in everything we do. Please take a moment to share any fond memories from Linda's amazing life.
