Memorial for Margaret L. Lindsey

Service information has not yet been posted.

Our beloved mother and grandmother, age 86, passed peacefully in her sleep January 24, 2021, in Rogers, Arkansas. Mom grew up during the depression with her father John F. Curry and mother Mattie B. Curry (Doss), and two brothers who she adored, John F. (Jack) Curry and Billy Gene Curry, all of whom preceded her in death. Her family moved frequently throughout her childhood wherever work was available, from Farmersburg, Indiana (her place of birth), through the Midwest, settling in Crossett, Arkansas, where she attended high school. Mom relocated with her family to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where she met and married our father Bob W. Lindsey in 1954 upon his return from Korea. She supported him in his service to the country as an Air Force Flight Line Mechanic then with Dow Chemical, during which time they traveled and lived in various places for 37 years, including The Netherlands, which was her favorite. The strong-willed, brilliant and complex woman she grew into was built on the foundation of support and love from her parents and brothers during those challenging formative years. These qualities along with her powerful faith and devotion to God empowered her to create a loving and secure home for her three daughters. Mother was also preceded in death by her sister and brother-in-laws who she loved deeply including Shirley Haygood, Janice Slabinak and JT Lindsey. She is survived by her daughters Sandra Price, Julia Harvala and Brandy Lindsey; her grandsons Jesse Bowers, Jake Harvala and Brandon Engle; and great granddaughter Maerie Bowers. She is also survived by her beloved sister-in-law Amy Curry, wife of Gene Curry, and many nieces and nephews. Mom’s life-long love of learning was always evident as she was an avid reader, absorbing the local paper cover-to- cover daily (after throwing away the sports section), along with at least three books a week. She started attending college in her 50’s, earning a Bachelors degree in accounting and graduating magna cum laude from the University of Houston in 1989. After passing the CPA exam in one attempt, she made a career with the Defense Contract Audit Agency (DCAA). Upon retiring from DCAA, she moved to Kansas City, Missouri, where she enjoyed retirement, her family, great friends and her poodles, Lucy, Amber and Maggy. In 2018, per her wishes she returned home to Arkansas to see her final sunset. Mom enjoyed socializing and sharing stories with the many friends she made wherever she lived including in Houston, Kansas City and Springdale. She loved playing golf - at which she excelled, enjoying the many years she played in a league out of the Morrilton Country Club in Morrilton, Arkansas. We enjoyed the products of her many hobbies, including gifts she created by hand such as Barbie Doll clothes, ceramics fired in her own kiln, and homemade jellies (nothing beat her wild cherry and muscadine jelly). We want to give our deepest heartfelt thanks to The House of Three; its proprietors, Shane and Jennifer Edwards; and the wonderful, compassionate staff who took care of our Mother every day for the most difficult part of her earthly journey. In that capacity, we especially give thanks to God for bringing Breanna Ward into our lives to help Mom with the transition to the next realm. We were so blessed to have found a place that enabled our Mother to enjoy a beautiful, comfortable home environment and allowed us to be with her physically and spiritually despite the dark umbrella of this pandemic. In our grief, we are shaken by the finality of her life here on earth, while comforted knowing that she’s home in the presence of our Lord. Mother, you have earned your eternal rest, now it is our turn to try to be worthy of your sacrifices by following your example to put God first, be decent people, care for our families and think of others before ourselves.
