Milwaukee Cover Story

Linda Sowell Linda Sowell is not only a great girlfriend; she's an awesome mom and an extraordinary daughter. She does all of this while handling her business as the Director of Diversity at Gilbane Building Company, one of the largest privately held, family-owned companies in the construction and real estate industry. As the Director of Diversity at Gilbane Building Company, she oversees company-wide diversity initiatives and is responsible for developing and implementing diversity initiatives, including community and industry outreach.

Linda is committed to the Southeastern Wisconsin community. She serves on the Milwaukee Area Workforce Investment Board and is also active on the MATC Foundation Board of Directors. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia she remembers having parents that showed her unconditional love, taught her how to love everybody and being married for 63 years, showed her through example what love was all about. Linda has lived in Milwaukee for a little over 11 years and while working as the Director of Public Relations for Potawatomi Bingo Casino, her Mom had a stroke at the age of 83.
Up until then her mom was in good health, was active and even volunteered. When Linda talks about her parents, it's obvious that this only child has a strong family bond.
...
"There's a deep sense of responsibility, they committed themselves to you and you want to do the same" Sowell said. The reality was she had a mortgage, a job and responsibilities in Milwaukee, so she sat down and brainstormed on what to do with her Dad and her only son. The results were Linda would fly to Atlanta on weekends to be with her mother while her Dad, a cousin and a family friend helped during the week. Her Mom, who also suffered from a form of Leukemia lived 18 months after her stroke and definitely had the best care there was.
Four years later, Linda's Dad who suffered from Coronary Heart disease fell ill at the age of 88. With his illness Linda took a family medical leave of absence for 3 months and once again was there to help with her ailing parent. His illness progressed fast and he died in September 2007 in a residential hospice facility. Remembering her Dad Linda says, "He held my hand from the moment that I can remember as a young girl and the final moment that we were together. His hands were always a source of strength, love and a clear example of hard work. Holding back tears Linda talked about how she allowed her son to be a part of the decision making. She says it's important to involve our younger generation in the planning process and to have the conversations about life. She says, "Let's not ignore them, help them understand and they may just have a perspective that we don't see as adults."
Linda also shared the role her girlfriends played in being there every step of the way.
...
After the whirlwind of dealing with both parents falling ill, Linda is able to look back and know that she did everything that could be done for her Mom and Dad and that feels good.
