OBITUARY

Lindsay Mari Gentry

June 9, 1982July 3, 2020

Lindsay Mari Gentry, 38, of Newburgh passed away on Friday, July 3, 2020. She was born June 9, 1982 at Scott AFB, IL. Her family announces her passing with a heavy heart. She had the brightest and most beautiful smile, happy eyes, a generous heart and amazing personality.

Her work experience included being a psychiatric technician and Phlebotomist. However, she was most proud of her service to our country. Lindsay served in the US Army from September 2001 to September 2006 and she served two tours in Iraq. She served in various capacities as a biological chemical warfare specialist, a bomb sniffer in combat and finally as a prison guard. She won numerous awards and medals but her crowning achievement was receiving the Army Achievement Medal twice and the Army Accommodation Medal. She always put her fellow troops first and went out of her way to protect them. She was heavily involved with VA groups in Evansville. Her family is so proud to have had her for her short time on Earth. Her soul is now with God where she is finally at peace. God bless her.

Lindsay was preceded in death by her father, Charles G. Sanders, Jr.; grandfather, Howard Schroeder, and grandmother, Peggy Alexander.

She is survived by her mother, Becky Sari Popenoe; step-father, Andy Popenoe; brother, Eric Sanders; sister, Jill Ferrante (Brian); aunt, Kim Alexander (Vincent); uncle, Vince Schroeder (Jeannie); nephews, Liam Sanders and A.J. Ferrante; niece, Tori Ferrante; cousins, Erica and Sofia Schroeder and Brooke Alexander; and Godparents, Cathy and Steve Rousseau.

Lindsay, you're gone too soon from us. I'll never forget all the fantastically fun times we had in Kansas. My friendship with you is what made being in the middle of nowhere Kansas worthwhile. I'll never forget how intensely funny you were, able to have me doubled over in laughter in seconds. I'll never forget our ridiculous greetings we had for each other every time we'd see each other. I'll never forget how fiercely loyal you were as a friend. I'll never forget all the jokes and the smiles we shared. I'll never forget how incredibly warm and kind and loving you were to me and everyone around you. I'll never forget your warm smile and your ability to bring joy to even the crappiest of circumstances. I'm grateful that I had the privilege of knowing you and calling you my friend. You're one of the best friends I've ever had. The world is a little less bright now without you in it. You will be loved and missed dearly. Rest well Lindsay.

I am so proud to have known Lindsay. We were deployed together in Iraq. We shared the same job and she taught me everything that I knew about being the best at my job. She was a great battle-buddy. She held me up when I needed support and we soon became great friends. We struggled together, overcame together and grew together. She was a bright and shining light and I will miss her immensely. Heaven has gained an Angel. I will miss you always Lindsay.

Proud to call Lindsay a teammate. Served with her at Ft. Riley, KS and deployed to Iraq with her in 2005. She always had a smile and something funny to say... an unbreakable spirit and a warm & giving heart. No doubt she'll be very missed by family and loved ones.

Lindsay was such a sweet soul! She always put others before herself. She always encouraged me and motivated me to be the best version of myself. She was such a joy to be around and always made me laugh. I will miss her beautiful smile and spirit. Sending lots of love and prayers to her family and closest friends.

Lindsay was my best friend and battle . She was determined and beautiful in so many ways. We served together in Iraq in 2003 and always put each other first. My dearest Lindsay, know that the rest of us have the watch and it is your time to rest and be at peace.
Until Valhalla my beautiful sister.
