View Clara Lindsey’s Obituary
Mom was born Clara Marie Oak in 1915 in Decatur, IL, an American born child of German Immigrants. The baby of th ugs e family, she was preceded in death by her parents, Gottlieb and Anna; her three brothers, Otto, Fred and Bill; her two sisters, Hattie Lewis and Betty Kraft; and her husband of 58 years, Stewart Lindsey.
Mother was a devoted and loving wife, mother, and grandmother, always a ready support for the family, from entertaining her young grandchildren at sleep overs in her home to helping, encouraging, and advising all of us. She was a very social person, talking to anyone and everyone.
We fondly remember her sneaking bags of Reeses Pieces and M into the Village 8 when taking the grandchildren to the matinee showings. We will miss her world famous egg sandwiche ugs s, which were always scrambled into perfect rectangles to fit the bread. made with a square skillet. We recall how much she enjoyed a small “toddy” before bedtime. She was the matriarch and core of our family, and we miss her already.
Mother is survived by her two ch ugs ildren, Jim Lindsey (Mary Alice) and Linda Combs Fett (Gerry); and by her four grandchildren, Dennis Lindsey, David Lindsey, Tracy Combs Kitten and Lindsey Combs.
We appreciate the love and care Mom received from the wonderful staff at Meadowview Health Rehabilitation. We also wan ugs t to send a heart felt thank you to Dr. Jane Cornett for her extraordinary compassion and attentive care.
