William "Bill" Lindsay
On June 11, many years gone by, a wee bonny bairn (a Scottish term), William Dewar Lindsay, was born to William Bell Lindsay and Phillis Murea (Symmonds) Lindsay in Chicago, Ill. He entered heaven on December 10, 2017 at Sanford Medical Center in Fargo, N.D., following a three week illness, with his beloved wife and soulmate by his side.
Bill attended grade and high school in Evanston, Ill. He furthered his education at the University of Illinois, Bethel College in St. Paul, and Brown Institute in Minneapolis. Following college, he worked at several secular radio stations in Iowa, Michigan and New York. He returned to Minneapolis after his father’s death to help his mother who was in frail health. He worked at Dayton’s for ten years and was in the Army Reserve. Bill met his wife-to-be, Elizabeth “Bette” Anderson. They dated for seven years before marriage on November 22, 1979. Bette moved to Montana where Bill was employed at Christian Radio Station KGLE until retirement in 2007. They moved to Clearbrook, Minn. six years ago to be close to family.
Bill loved to hike in Makoshika State Park near Glendive. He was involved in jail and mission ministries in Minnesota and Montana. Other interests were photography, rock collecting and reading. He was proud of his Scottish heritage and along with wife Bette, visited Scotland twice where he had a cousin. They also enjoyed attending Scottish Festivals in Colorado and Montana. He was a member of Clan Lindsay Association.
Bill was preceded in death by his parents and brother-in-law, Dick Anderson.
He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; brother and sister-in-law, Tom and Corrinne Anderson; three nephews, Scott, Ryan and Jon Anderson; and four cousins.
Memorial services will be held on Tuesday, January 2, 2018 at 1 p.m. at First Baptist Church in Clearbrook, Minn. A visitation will be one hour prior to the services at the church beginning at noon. The Cease Family Funeral Home of Bagley assisted the family with arrangements.
In lieu of flowers prefer donations to Samaritan’s Purse or Prison Fellowship.
Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His Saints. Psalm 116:15
