Patricia Dale Lindsay

Patricia Dale Lindsay died April 28, 2011, in Tuscon, Ariz., after a brave battle with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).

She was born in Thomasville, Ga., on April 27, 1948, and was educated in Bethesda, Md., Sherborn, Mass., and Davis. She graduated from UC Davis with a bachelor’s degree in anthropology and received a master of public health degree from UNC Chapel Hill. She was a health educator at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas, Glendale Adventist Medical Center in Glendale, the Lincoln-Lancaster County Health Department and University of Nebraska in Lincoln, Neb., and Cowell Student Health Center at UC Davis, retiring as assistant director for health promotion in 2004.

Then, after caring for her parents, Dale and Sybil Lindsay, she opened My Parents House, providing care for the elderly and disabled for five years in Davis, when her battle with ALS led to her move to Tucson to share a home with her eldest sister.

She is survived by her sisters, Martha Cover and husband Dan of Tucson and Judy Clapp and husband Bob of Tulsa, Okla.; two much-loved foster sons, Sirak Aragaw and Tatek Kassaye of Davis; and many nieces, nephews, grands and great-grands.

We’ll miss her unwavering support of human rights and dignity, her (sometimes unfinished) craft/art projects, her love for us (and her two dogs and three cats), and her never-quenched sense of humor. Her friends in Davis and Woodland will remember her deep involvement with Davis Community Church and many community projects during her years there. In fact, they will be able to tell us in detail of numerous activities that we do not remember or know in full.

A celebration of Patricia’s life will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, June 12, at Davis Community Church.
