Grace Kent Lindsay

Grace Kent Lindsay
May 15, 1918 – May 22, 2014

Grace Kent Lindsay left her earthly family to join her beloved husband Walter West Lindsay on May 22, 2014. She was born in Lewiston, Utah on May 15, 1918, to Melvin and Viola (Jackson) Kent. She was the last living child of her parent’s nine children.
Her children were awed and inspired by her strength to endure to the end. Each of us developed our own special love and closeness for her as she struggled to leave this mortal existence.
She was well known for her music talent which began at age 11 as the organist in primary and continued in ward and stake auxiliary music positions throughout her life. She served in many stake and ward positions. She and her husband, West, were ordinance workers in the Ogden Temple.
She instilled in her children the same love of music and the importance of hard work that her parents had taught her.
Grace married Athel Denton Benson in Logan, Utah in 1936. He died in 1939, two months before the birth of her first child, Sue Benson. While working for the Ogden Board of Education she met and married West Lindsay on May 7, 1943 in the Salt Lake Temple. Grace’s daughter, Sue, was sealed to them and joined in the family with West’s daughter Shirley from his first marriage. Lynn, Sally and Linda (Tomi) were born to them in the following years of their marriage.
Five generations of posterity are saddened by her passing. She was clearly loved by many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
The family would like to express their thanks to Heartwood Hospice and the many Legacy staff as well as many supportive family and friends who shared their love during the last days.
There will be a viewing at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836-36th St., Ogden, UT, on Monday, May 26, 2014 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 pm. Services will be held at Leavitt’s Mortuary, on Tuesday, May 27 at 11:00 a.m. with a viewing 9:45 a.m to 10:45 a.m.

Dear Sally and Family, Sorry to hear of you mom's passing. I have so many good memories of being at your home and a young girl. Your Mom and Dad always made me feel so welcome. Please know I am thinking about you. Nancy

To the Lindsay Family, Sorry to hear of your mothers passing. I want you to know how much I appreciate your friend ship and kindness those many years ago. Your mother and dad were very kind to me and welcomed me into your home, and whenever I went down town I'd frequently stop by the bank to visit and she always made me feel welcome. You're a special family and bring special memories to me. Thanks for being a true friend. Love to all of you, Carmen Stuart

I worked with Grace at the old Commercial Security Bank. She was a delightful person to work with and a choice person that anyone could confide in and know you would receive advice full of wisdom. Many years later, she and West came to our house to buy bushels of tomatoes so that they could make her famous tomato soup. She didn't know it was my house but just saw the ad in the newspaper and drove out. They were faithful customers for years until she could no longer do canning. I loved her and admired all of her gracious qualities. Her name fit the type of person she was. My love to your family. Janeal Cox

So very grateful for Grace. She and West were neighbors of my grandparents Wendell and Marion Esplin. They were the greatest neighbors and so very dear to our hearts. She helped me get through some of the toughest times during the passing of my Grandpa. She was beautiful, strong and such a wonderful friend. I can only imagine the glorious reunion taking place... XOXO
