Lois Ann Lindsay

Lois Lindsay, 95, passed away peacefully on February 15, 2024, surrounded by loved ones. Lois touched many lives and inspired countless people. She was born May 16, 1928, in Chicago, Illinois. During her high school years, she moved to Long Lake, Illinois where she met her husband of 70 years, Robert Lindsay. After graduation, Lois began her work career as a secretary working for Roberts and Porter in Chicago. While raising their two children, Jim and Kathy, she worked from home for several medical professional organizations. Her manual typewriter was a constant background sound in the house. She later worked for the Lake County Health Department as a division secretary.

Lois was active in the PTA, Girl Scouts and her church while raising her family. As a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Long Lake, Illinois she held every volunteer position from secretary to janitor. As a Girl Scout leader she influenced the lives of many young girls. Lois also enjoyed spending time with her friends and family and every summer she planned multiple camping adventures across the country.

Lois and Bob retired to Port St. Lucie, Florida in 1990, where they spent over 30 years in the Savannah Club. They enjoyed traveling in their RV, attending St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church and volunteering in their community. Lois was active in numerous clubs and activities throughout their years living in Florida. One of her passions was working as an election poll volunteer. She had the distinction of being the oldest and longest working poll volunteer in the Savannah Club precinct. The Players Club, her local community theater, gave her the opportunity to participate in many productions with roles including a Christmas elf, clown, dancer, and a leading role as Minnie Pearl. Lois organized a biweekly exercise class which helped her, and many others maintain good health. She attributed her longevity to her active lifestyle, and she was able to stay active, providing her the opportunity to hike and kayak with her family, travel to visit family and friends in Ohio and Illinois, and even a cruise to Iceland at 95. Overall, her biggest contribution to her community was starting, organizing, and maintaining a baby equipment lending library; an invaluable service to numerous families which she did for over 30 years.

Lois is preceded in death by her husband Robert Lindsay, nephew Brad Deppmeier, and brother James Deppmeier. She is survived by her son, James Lindsay (Betsy Lindsay), daughter Kathryn Nissenbaum (Michael Nissenbaum), granddaughters Amanda Lindsay Charnock (Grayson Charnock), Kelly Nissenbaum, Jennifer Nissenbaum; great-granddaughter, Emmylou Lindsay Charnock; and her nephew Brent Deppmeier.

A memorial service will be held April 13, 2024, at 4:30 pm with a reception to follow at St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church, 295 NW Prima Vista Blvd, Port St. Lucie, FL 34983.
