Marianne Elisabeth Lindsey

October 12, 1945 — June 6, 2024

A Celebration of Life service in honor of Marianne Elisabeth Lindsey, age 78, will be held on June 22, 2024, starting at 10:00 AM at Wilson - Orwosky Funeral Home.
 Marianne Elisabeth Lindsey, a beloved member of the Dallas area and Neosho, Missouri communities, passed away on June 6, 2024 in Sulphur Springs, TX. Marianne was born on October 12, 1945, in Vohrenbach, Germany, and later made her mark in the world through an impactful career in advertising.
 Known for her culinary skills, Marianne's memory will live on through the pastries and German cuisine she lovingly prepared for others and the recipes immortalized in her cookbooks for the State Fair of Texas and Bruton Road Baptist Church. Her desire to share her German heritage and passion for cooking brought joy to many and will be cherished by all who had the pleasure of tasting her creations.
 A woman of faith and service, Marianne dedicated herself to God and was an active member of the Baptist community. Her vibrant personality shone through her love for sports and outdoor activities. She was a true athlete at heart, finding joy in playing field hockey, softball, fishing, and horseback riding. Her Western spirit exuded through her cowboy attire, and being called a cowgirl brought a sparkle to her eyes.
 Aside from her professional achievements in advertising and entrepreneurship, Marianne found fulfillment as a Sunday School teacher assistant for 4th through 6th graders for an impressive total of 48 years. She also served for many years in church as an interpreter for the deaf. Her contributions impacted the hearts of both young and old and will be remembered fondly by generations to come.
  Her beauty as a blonde was only surpassed by the warmth and kindness she exuded towards others. Described as the perfect wife and "help mate," Marianne's devotion to her loved ones knew no bounds.
 Marianne is survived by her loving family and friends who will forever cherish the memories created with this remarkable woman whose life was a tapestry woven with love, faith, adventure, and dedication.  Husband of 57 years, Roy L. Lindsey; children, Diana Michelle and Nathan Thomas; grandchildren, Luke and Harmony Lindsey, and Jonathon and Aubree Saenz.

 Let us come together to remember a soul who touched our lives with grace and compassion. May her legacy inspire us to lead lives filled with love and service just as she did.
