Therese Federbusch Lindsay

1923 - 2001

Mrs. Therese Federbusch Lindsay of Mint Hill, North Carolina died Sunday, November 4, 2001 at Presbyterian Matthews Hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina.  Terry, as she was known to her family and friends, was born May 2, 1923, in Rochester, New York, the daughter of Isadore and Sylvia Deutsch Federbusch. 

Terry and her husband, Frank E. Lindsay, have resided in Mint Hill, NC since 1970.  She retired in 1986 from the Charlotte Mecklenburg School system as Cafeteria Manager where she was affectionately known as “Mom Lindsay” by the many students who knew her there.  She enlisted as a Navy Wave during WWII and served as a Link Trainer Operator in Pensacola, Florida.  She met her husband of 56 years while stationed there.   She was active in many church, business and social organizations in her community.  Among her most cherished activities was a very active support role of her husband in celebrating his Scottish heritage via the Clan Lindsay USA and the Robert Burns Society of Charlotte. 

Terry Lindsay is survived by her husband, Frank E. Lindsay of Mint Hill, NC, daughter Susan Lindsay of Charlotte, NC, son Steven Lindsay and wife Wendy of Holly Springs, NC, three beloved grandchildren, Angela, Ashley and Austin Lindsay, and numerous nieces and nephews. 

Burial was at the Sunset Memorial Gardens, Mint Hill, NC. 

Terry was a wonderful wife, mother and great friend to those of us who had the pleasure of knowing her.  The world is a better place because Therese Federbusch Lindsay passed this way.  She will be missed sorely.
