Kathryn 'Mary Kay' M. (Bishop) Lindsay

Surrounded by her loving family, Kathryn “Mary Kay” M. Lindsay, passed away Wednesday, January 25, 2012, at Wheaton-Franciscan All Saints Medical Center. She was born in Monmouth, IL, on September 1, 1934, daughter of the late William J. and Mary E. (Nee: Pearson) Bishop.

On June 9, 1956, in Monmouth, IL, she was united in marriage to Robert E. Lindsay. An avid tennis player, Mary Kay assisted her husband, Bob, for over forty years organizing the city tennis programs. She was an excellent seamstress. More than anything, she treasured time spent with her family, and will forever be remembered as a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She will be dearly missed.

Survivors include her loving husband of fifty-five years, Bob; her children, Linda (Tom) Groose of Glendale, WI, Laura (Scott) French of Racine, Lisa (Don) Sattler of Poplar Grove, IL, RJ Lindsay of Racine; her eight grandchildren, Matthew and Adam Groose, Jennifer, Rachel and Samuel French, Brandon and Josh Sattler, Nick Lindsay; brother, Richard (Jeanne) Bishop of Monmouth, IL; sister, Doris Reigel of TX; sister-in-law, Patsy (Jim) Glenn of Aledo, IL; nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sisters and four brothers.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, January 28, 2012, at 11:30 a.m. at Trinity United Methodist Church, 3825 Erie St., with Rev. Rosiland Dryver-Scott officiating. Private interment will follow at Country Haven Cemetery, Caledonia. Relatives and friends may meet with the family Saturday at the church from 9:30 a.m. until time of service at 11:30 a.m. Memorials to the Northside Food Pantry or to the Racine Public Library have been suggested.

A very special thank you to Dr. Michael Mullane and his wonderful staff, and to Wheaton-Franciscan staff, especially the nurses in oncology during her last hours for their loving and compassionate care.
