Linda Coulbourne Custis, 83, wife of the late Elvin R. Custis, Jr. and the late Kenneth Annis and resident of Exmore, VA, passed away Monday, January 3, 2022, at The Citadel in Nassawadox, VA. A native of Accomac, VA, she was the daughter of the late James Elmer Coulbourne and the late Madlyn Milliner Coulbourne.

She had a passion for travel, farm bureau conventions, shopping, Saturday night dining out (especially at the Village and a good Manhattan), getting her hair done, cooking Christmas Eve dinners, 4th of July cookouts, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. As her health declined, many of days were spent with daily trips to Hardee’s, enjoying her Exmore Village apartment and visits from her friend Ann.
