Lindsay Willding Obituary, Death Cause – Lindsay Wilding, age 97, passed away on March 25, 2022 at the Morning Star Senior Living Center in Idaho Falls. She was surrounded by her children at the time of her death, which was due to natural causes. She was the eldest of the three daughters that William Henry Lindsay Jr. and Phoebe May Humpherys had. She was born in Dingle, Idaho, on August 23, 1924. She was raised in a loving family that placed a strong emphasis on education and was based on the gospel.
She received her high school diploma from Montpelier High School in 1941 after completing her education in Dingle. She earned an Associate of Arts in Education degree from Ricks College, where she was recognized as the top student and graduated as valedictorian. Before completing her studies at Brigham Young University, where she graduated with High Honors and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education, she worked as a teacher for a number of years in elementary schools. During that time, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree.
She tied the knot with Malcolm Walker Wilding in the LDS Temple in Idaho Falls on the 18th of June, 1947. They lived in Ames, Iowa; three towns in Mexico (San Luis Potosi, Hermosillo, and Mexico City); Moody, Idaho; Springville, Utah; and Idaho Falls, Idaho while Malcolm pursued his schooling and started his business. They built a number of residences throughout these years to accommodate their expanding brood.
She was a faithful and devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where she served in a variety of leadership and teaching capacities. They included the President of the Relief Society for both the Ward and the Stake, as well as an Officiator in the Temples located in Idaho Falls, Mesa, and Santiago. Her assistance with individual and church-wide genealogy research comprised a significant portion of the service she provided. Along with her husband, she completed five missions, three of which were performed in the countries of Peru, Mexico, and Chile. She and her husband had a deep affection for the people of Latin America, and she became quite fluent in their original language so that they could communicate effectively with them.
