Former Alaskan Florence M. Lindman died Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2002, at Bethany Covenant Home in Minneapolis.
Funeral services were held Nov. 16 in Pillager, Minn.
Mrs. Lindman was born Feb. 1, 1918, in Duluth, Minn., to Peter and Maria Lindstrom. She graduated from Denfeld High School in Duluth and received an associate's degree from Bethel College in Minnesota. She also graduated from Bethel Seminary with a bachelor's degree in theology.
She married Pastor Carl Lindman and together they served churches in Pillager, Anchorage and, most recently, in Soldotna at the Soldotna Bible Chapel.
She had many talents and interests. She wrote crossword puzzles, painted and was an avid reader. As a writer, she won awards in journalism and wrote articles for Christian publications. She taught Sunday school classes and led Bible studies for many decades. Together with her husband, she traveled to Brazil to assist missionaries there.
"She was always a godly woman and a wonderful mother. She was kind, loving and always interested in everything her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren were doing. She was completely unselfish and giving. She always put the needs of her husband, her family and the ministry first," her family said.
She was preceded in death by her parents, three sisters and two brothers.
She is survived by her husband Carl Lindman; sons and daughters-in-law, Robert and Marilyn Lindman of Lino Lakes, Minn., and Gary and Marsha Lindman of Soldotna; daughter, Barbara Lindman of Shoreview, Minn.; daughter and son-in-law, Mary and Dan Carlson of Mounds View, Minn.; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and her 102 year-old-sister, Anne Stone of Pasadena, Calif.
