Obituary: Lindskog, Lucille Esther

Age 93

LINDSKOG, Lucille Esther (Age 93) Lucille was born on July 13, 1921, to parents Emma and John Stitzer in Medical Lake, WA.

Lucy grew up and lived most of her adult life on the farm in the Spring Hill area.

On April 4th, 1943, she married Robert W. Lindskog, her husband of 59 years.

The two of them helped build the house that later became their home, and the home of their children, Larry and Diane.

Lucille, also known affectionately as Lucy or Grandma Lucy, had several occupations through her life.

These included Crane Operator, Homemaker, Farmer, and Rural Mail Carrier.

She has many stories of her work for the Post Office, and enjoyed her co-workers.

Lucille loved to travel.

She especially loved to visit her grandson Michael and watch him announce baseball games for several Minor League teams over the years.

She enjoyed a couple cruises with family and trips to Oregon with her daughter.

She hosted many a family Thanksgiving and Christmas dinner, encouraging everyone to overindulge in her delicious cooking.

We all did.

She is survived by her son Larry (Susan) Lindskog, daughter Diane Baker, grandchildren Mike (Ashley) Lindskog, Gaemmi (Lee) Jasmin, and Brett (Krista) Crosby, and their families.

She is preceded in death by her husband Robert William, known as Bill, in 2002.

On November 20th Lucille went safely home to Jesus.

She will be missed with love too great for words, but leaves us with many beautiful memories of her smile, her laugh, and her love of life and all of her family.

She will be celebrated at a memorial service at Ball and Dodd Funeral Home on December 6th at 12 noon.
