Obituary for MARY L. LINDSEY

The journey began in Topeka, Kanas, on September 15, 1925 when Mary L. Lindsey was born to the late Edward and Minnie Porch Sr. This life journey ended on August 27, 2013 when she fell into a deep sleep.

Mary graduated from the Kanas Vocational School of Business in Topeka, Kanas. Mary said “some girls would slip out and go to town, oh yes it was the suburbs. I would help tie the sheets to let them down and wait and pull them back in, I never went out with them. Of course we all got caught, no social that weekend.” After graduation Mary moved to Ft. Leavenworth, Kansas where she was married and had a daughter.

Mary became an official Washingtonian in 1950 when she relocated to Washington DC. After 30 years of dedicated service she retired from National Security Agency.

Mary lived a well-rounded life, enjoying a variety of interest and hobbies. She was an active member of St. Mark Baptist Church. Mary was a member of the Volunteer Chorus and the secretary of the group for 23 years. After her singing journey she decided to join The Missionary Society. Mary said “I wonder if they missed my singing”. She LOVED to set up at the flea markets and sell her Watkins product. Mary truly loved her family. She also enjoyed her 2 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren. This woman was witty and a quick thinker down to the end. Her favorite saying was “I’m going to stay in my lane”.

Mary leaves her loving and devoted family to cherish her memory. Loving and supportive daughter, Aloha Lindsey Cobb, (2) grandchildren Kim Cobb-Jimenez (Alvin) & Keith Cobb, (4) great grandchildren Malik, Jayla, Alyia& Derrick Linzy, nephew, Barry Porch and a host of other relatives and many friends.
