You could find Lindsay at Hannibal Pirate football games or track events cheering on Kaiser or at Karen's Dance Academy events supporting Joely's love of dance.  Her favorite pastimes were spent gathered with family and friends at her parent's pool, on her outdoor patio, or anywhere that she could sing karaoke.  Lindsay enjoyed crocheting, activities with her kids, and traveling when she could. Lindsay looked forward to Shark Week where she could binge watch the Sharknado marathon and sci-fi shark movies.  She was a "woman of the 90s", loving Michael Jackson, Drop Dead Fred, the sitcom Friends, and her favorite wrestler The Rock. She will be remembered for her contagious smile and shining beauty, both inside and out!
