On the evening of Father’s Day, June 19, 2022, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend passed away following a short illness, surrounded by her family. She was greeted in Heaven by her father, mother, and son Ron, undoubtedly the angels waiting to welcome her home.
Heidi Morgenegg Lindsey was born on a cold winter day, January 16, 1938 in Bern, Switzerland, the daughter of Johann Morgenegg and Marie Rastorfer. She emigrated with her family to America in May 1950 and settled in Salt Lake City, Utah where she lived most of her life. After graduating from South High School, she became a licensed cosmetologist and beautician, and these skills were on gorgeous display throughout her life in her meticulous and lovely appearance. On March 3, 1957, Heidi married the love of her life, F. Darrell Lindsey beginning their beautiful 65 year partnership on earth. For all these years, they were such a stunningly matched pair that no matter what space they entered, everyone took notice. Their union was blessed with four sons: Ronny, Ricky, Randy, and Robby, and later, fourteen grandchildren.
One of her sons wrote this about his mom:
Heidi will always be a shining light of humanity which God amplified because of the pure love she radiated. Her whole Being sparkled and beamed from her silver nails and the glittery style of her personalized jewelry and the exquisite customized clothing she sewed herself. Her love of life came through in everything she did---from the countless friendships she cultivated by being truly interested in her fellow humans, and from sharing the truths she cherished about God and the world. Her loving tone and attitude, infectious laugh, and beautiful smile will be etched in our hearts and minds like her oils on the canvases she created for all time. Heidi was a prolific oil painter, filling her home and even her garage with exceptional artwork which often reflected her Swiss heritage and her love of flowers and which she generously shared with all around her, personalized with a loving note penned on the back.
In her personal history, Heidi wrote, “I’m writing this so that my children will understand better how we as children of God are all deeply connected. My parents made great sacrifices that I might have a better, more peaceful life in Zion anchored to the Church. May all my loved ones begin to understand better the eternal aspects of our eternal family unit.”
As a dedicated daughter of God and faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day Saints, she loved her ward family as well and was widely loved in return. Two of her favorite callings were as a Relief Society teacher and an Ordinance Worker at the Salt Lake Temple.
Because she touched each one of our lives in countless ways, she will always be remembered as one-of-a-kind. Those of us who have been left behind by this irreplaceable woman will need to trust in her faith and lean on God until we have the joy of being reunited with her again. May her love continue to flow through everyone she touched in her life.
Heidi often said that she did not want to grow too old here on earth, but rather looked forward to going to Heaven to be with Heavenly Parents, her Savior, and to be reunited with those who predeceased her: her beloved parents and her eldest son Ronny.
“Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life….” (John 14:6).
Heidi is survived by her husband, F. Darrell Lindsey, her three sons, Rick J. Lindsey, Randy F. Lindsey, and Robby L. Lindsey, her two sisters, Liz Wetzel and Helen Cook, her brother George Morgenegg, and 14 grandchildren.
Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 A.M. on Tuesday, June 28, 2022 with a Family Visitation one hour prior at 10:00 A.M.
