Former teacher enjoyed skiing with family

LYNNFIELD  — Linda J. Camuso (O’Connor), 81, passed away peacefully on May 15, 2024 while surrounded by her loving family.

She was the beloved wife of Steve Camuso, with whom she shared 58 years of marriage. She also leaves behind two children: Scott Camuso of Londonderry, New Hampshire; and Jill Daley (Dan) of Lynnfield. Four grandchildren also survive Linda: Nicholas Camuso, Samantha Camuso, Paul Daley and Mia Daley.

Linda graduated in the first graduating class of Lynnfield High School, where she excelled at tennis, field hockey and basketball. She was a member of Alpha Xi Delta Sorority while attending the University of New Hampshire, where she met and later married her best friend, Steve. Linda taught English in Texas where Steve was stationed in the U.S. Army. She continued teaching when they moved to Lynnfield, where they remained in their “starter home” for 48 years. Linda and her family enjoyed many years at their ski house, “Chalet Moose,” in North Conway, New Hampshire with many friends and family.

Over the course of 57 years, Linda was a prominent figure in women’s golf at Salem Country Club, winning many tournaments, including several club championships following in the footsteps of her mother, Edie O’Connor. Linda was fiercely proud of her family and always involved in her children’s and later her grandchildren’s lives. She was such a positive supporter that she was widely considered “everyone’s mom.”

Her Funeral Mass was celebrated in Saint Maria Goretti Church, Lynnfield on Tuesday, May 21, 2024. Interment took place at Forest Hill Cemetery in Lynnfield. The McDonald Funeral Home in Wakefield handled the arrangements. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Linda’s name can be made to either
