Florette “Flo” (Zastre) Lindsay entered into the light of eternal life peacefully on Saturday February 16, 2019 at the age of 89 at Riverview Gardens, Chatham. She was predeceased by her husband Lancelot “Brick” Lindsay in 2002, by her sons Barry Kelly in 1975, Garry Kelly in 1995 and Brian Kelly in 2016 and by her grandsons Richard Baribeau in 2006 and Daniel Murphy in 2016.

Flo was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba on May 1, 1929 to her parents Alfred & Justine (LaFreniere) Zastre and was the sister of two brothers and eight sisters. She was a long time resident of Blenheim and with her husband Brick owned and operated Blenheim Taxi for many years before selling and opening a restaurant, store and bait shop until retiring back to Blenheim.

Flo will be greatly missed by her family: her son Keith & Mary Kelly (grandsons Ryan, Patrick and Greg) of Victoria B.C., her son Les Lindsay (grandson Sam and granddaughter Eden), her daughter Cheryl Kelly (grandson Matt Rose and granddaughter Lisa Murphy) and by her great granddaughter Olivia and great grandson Cohle.

We would like to thank the staff on 5 West at Riverview Gardens for their care and compassion.

Visitation will be held at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Saturday February 23 from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. and will be immediately followed by a funeral service.

Friends wishing to make a donation in Flo’s memory are asked to consider the Pet and Wildlife Rescue.
