Sister Lindsey Spjute
Called Home to Serve
Sister Spjute (23), while serving as a missionary for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Coventry England, was running early in the morning with her companion when she collapsed and passed away to accept another assignment to serve.Lindsey was born the fifth of five girls and one boy. Lindsey spent most of her growing up years in Farmington and graduated from Viewmont High with honors. Lindsey attended BYU Idaho and Utah State University where she was an excellent student, majoring in Special Education.
Lindsey put herself through college by working hard. She worked on the grounds crew at Temple Square, as an arborist at BYU Idaho, and as a supervisor for a landscaping crew. Last summer she worked as a member of the Centerville Cemetery grounds crew, taking care of the grounds and digging graves. She loved her co-workers and telling people that she was a gravedigger!
Lindsey is survived by her parents, Mark and LuAnn, her sisters, Laura (Jake) Jorgenson, Melanie (Randy) Ball, April (Toby) Johnson, Alicia (TBD), a brother, Greg who is serving in the Ohio Cincinnati Mission, and an extended family too large to mention.
Lindsey's blue eyes twinkled as she helped everyone see the bright side of life. Her smile, music, hilarious antics, and kindness were infectious to all. It will take some time for us to fill the void that her passing has caused.
To help in that process, there will be a gathering to celebrate Lindsey's life for family and friends on Sunday evening, May 18th from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Russon Brothers Mortuary at 1941 N. Main, Farmington, Utah. (Across from Cherry Hill Water Park) We will then gather for a final tribute to Lindsey Monday at 11:00 a.m. at the LDS chapel in Farmington located at 695 South 200 East, Farmington. Friends may call from 9:30-10:30 a.m. prior to service.
In lieu of flowers, plant a tree, or we know that Lindsey would smile and break into cheers if you were to make a contribution to the missionary fund of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Online guestbook at: www.russonmortuary.com
