Kathy Jo Lindor, daughter of Donald and Lorraine (Anderson) Lindor, was born September 29, 1959 in Morris, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Chokio. Kathy attended Chokio Elementary and in 1978, she graduated from Chokio-Alberta High School. She continued her education at the Fergus Falls Community College in Fergus Falls, MN. On September 20, 1980, she was united in marriage to Tim Lind at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in Chokio by Tim’s dad, Reverend Delano Lind. Their union was blessed with two sons, Tony and Jared.

Kathy worked for many years as a laboratory technician, but her true passion was being hopelessly devoted to the people she loved. Her sparkly eyes loved to tease, her arms gave hugs and her strength was larger than life. In her downtime she could be found in her garden or cheering on any sporting event.  Her personality made her such a giving caretaker, that her family always knew they were cherished. Being Grandma Kate was her favorite job! Since he proposed in the second grade, Tim knew Kathy was extraordinary and never wanted to let her go. Her spunky spirit will be missed but her legacy will live on her family’s hearts forever.

Kathy died on Sunday, January 12, 2020 at her home in Miltona, Minnesota, with her family surrounding her. She was 60 years old.

She is survived by her husband: Tim Lind of Miltona; two sons: Tony (Aimee) Lind of Waconia and Jared Lind of Moorhead; two granddaughters: Hailey Kay and Anna Jo Lind of Waconia; her mother: Lorraine Lindor of Morris; two brothers: David Lindor of Cannon Falls and Jerel (Mary) Lindor of Morris and one sister: Nancy Rae (Randy) Haas of Willcox, AZ. She was preceded in death by her father, Donald and two sisters-in-law: Gail Marty Lindor and Linda Eger Lindor.
