from Chesterton High School in 2000. Lindsey had just returned to her former
favorite job position at Theater Council Productions in Chicago. She was
active in Dance Academy, had the skills of a number of dance styles, enjoyed
equestrian horseback riding, and had an enormous passion for music. She
dearly loved her pet Chihuahua Bugsly and cared for all animals. It was more
her pleasure to take care of the well-being of others rather than to be
concerned about herself. A smile made by Lindsey could fill a room and be
felt by all. Lindsey left a lasting impression on those who knew and loved
her and will be greatly missed, fondly remembered.
