Lindsey, Lillie Ruth

May 26, 1936 — July 15, 2021

Lillie Lindsey was the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman; strong, virtuous, selfless, loving, and full of wisdom. Lillie lived and walked with a great level of dignity, class, and grace. Whatever she put her hands to do for Jesus was always done with a touch of humility and excellence. Lillie was a devout Christian not only in words but in deeds and she was not just a hearer of God's Word but truly was a doer of His Word. Whenever she prayed, her prayers were earnest, heartfelt, and sincere. Lillie was a living testimony of the goodness and faithfulness of God, and she would be quick to share one of many testimonies with anyone who would listen.

There is a sense of joy that Lillie Lindsey has finished the race and now is in the presence of the Lord whom she served faithfully and dedicated her life to. As Lillie reached the final days of her life here on earth, her only concern was that she had lived a life pleasing to the Lord. Lillie has left a great legacy of faith, prayer, and love for her family, friends, and the great hosts of individuals whose lives have been marked forever by this great woman of God. May the Light of Jesus that shined so brightly in her continue to warm all of our hearts.

Lille was born on May 26, 1936 in Bay Springs, Mississippi into the family of Ulysses and Sarah Barlow. Both Lillie’s parents, her brothers Otis and Sam, and her sisters, Clotee and Mary Joyce, preceded her in death.

Lillie was united in Holy Matrimony to AC Lindsey on August 4, 1951 in Laurel, MS. This union lasted sixty-three years until AC’s death in 2014. To this union there were eight children, the oldest child, AC Lindsey Jr. preceded her in death. Lillie’s sons in love, Sammiuel Lawson and Frank Mills and daughter in love, Loretta Lindsey also preceded her in death.

Lillie was a devoted wife and justifiably proud to be known as a loving mother and wonderful grandmother. Lillie was a homemaker until the last of her children began school. Lillie subsequently worked for Halls in Kansas City, Missouri until she retired. After retiring Lillie spent time traveling, cooking, ministering to others which was her life’s mission, and spending time with her family. Lillie was able to mark off several items on her bucket list including meeting Joel Olsteen, laying out on the beach in Haiti, and traveling to Hawaii, Italy and other countries.

Lillie was a long-time resident of Kansas City, Missouri and moved to Wentzville, Missouri in 2006. Lillie was a member of Redemption Assembly of God in Wentzville Missouri and a lifetime member of Greater Holy Temple Church of God in Christ in Kansas City, MO.

Lillie leaves to cherish her memory: three sons ~Thomas Lindsey – San Francisco, CA, David Lindsey (Carol ) – Camarillo, CA, and John Lindsey (Joyce), Kansas City, MO; four daughters ~ Altha Lawson – Stockbridge, GA, Mary Cranon (Douglas ) – Mansfield, TX; Julia Mills (Derrick) – Wentzville, MO and Hazel Lindsey-Perkins (Marvin) – Kansas City, MO; four sisters ~ Katie Ulmer, Barbara Barlow , Earlene Tate, and Melody Williams; one sister in love ~ Lula Mae Coleman, Laurel, MS; thirty grandchildren, thirty-nine great grandchildren, daughters in love ~ Mattie Lindsey and Cheryl Lindsey; bonus children Gregory and Junie (baby girl) Kelley; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, relatives and dear friends.

She was a sweet and lively spirit. I didn’t get to know her a very long time but the short time I did was impactful. Rest well, beautiful woman of God.

My beautiful mother-in-law and dear, dear friend has left this earth. I am heartbroken. To help me, I simply repeat this portion of a poem, that says "...Don’t think of her as gone away, her journey’s just begun, life holds so many facets, this earth is only one." I will always love and miss you, Miss Lillie. ~Caroll
