Lesa Cusson Obituary

Lesa Carole Cusson was born on April 14th, 1961 in Springfield, MA and passed on January 6th, 2024 after a well fought battle with cancer. Although she grew up living in Wilbraham, MA with her brother and parents, she spent as much of her time as possible in Mystic with her grandparents Stephen and Christine. Her time in Mystic created a deep love for the sea. This lifelong love for the water painted her days with joy, from childhood splashes to countless vacations shared with her beloved husband and children, building sandcastles, walking the beach, and collecting seashells on sun-drenched shores.

Lesa first met her husband Kenneth “Ken” in 1993, and later married on New Year’s Eve of 1995. Lesa wanted not only an event to celebrate their love, but a party for all their friends and family to celebrate the year. Together, they raised their children in Lesa's grandparents (Stephen and Christine) house in Springfield, MA. This is where they added many memories - from bonfires to luau parties, extensive haunted houses and family get-togethers, baking and doing crafts with her kids, and of course beach themed everything. But Lesa’s radiant spirit wasn't confined to the ocean. It flowed towards another passion: children. She dedicated her life to nurturing young minds, her gentle touch and boundless care gracing countless daycare centers as an invaluable aid and a culinary magician in the kitchen. Every giggle, every bite of comfort food, every hand held became a testament to her dedication, enriching the lives of every child she met. Now, the tide carries her towards a peaceful horizon where her predeceased mother Carole Muzic, father Stephen Muzic and brother William “Bill” Muzic awaited her arrival. She leaves behind a legacy of laughter, kindness, and the saltwater with her husband Kenneth Cusson, and her three children Richard Rowell, Amanda Roughgarden, Kyle Cusson and his wife Karina. As well as her adored grandchild Harmony “Ross” Sharp, and beloved cousins, nieces and nephews, and countless loved ones.

Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Lesa’s Life on Thursday, January 11, 2024 at Nowak Funeral & Cremation Services, 15 Ludlow Ave., Springfield with a Calling Hour from 11am-12pm followed by burial at Hillcrest Park Cemetery.
