Remembering Lindsay...

I apologize for not posting this sooner. I tried looking for Lindsay's obituary earlier without any luck but I just found it a couple of days ago. This, like Jason's obituary, was very beautifully and eloquently written:

Lindsay Christine Cutshall, 22

FRESNO -- Around Sunday, Aug. l5, 2004, Lindsay Christine Cutshall of Fresno, along with her fiance, Jason Scott Allen of Zeeland, Mich., was called home to live eternally with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Lindsay was born Sept. 9, 1981, in Coshocton.

She was a member of Fresno Bible Church, where her father has been the pastor for 18 years. She attended Fresno Elementary and graduated high school as a home school student in 2000.

In 2003, she was a graduate of Appalachian Bible College in Bradley, W.Va., obtaining an Associates Degree in Bible. While at ABC Lindsay became involved in outdoor adventure sports like backpacking, rock climbing, rappelling and white water rafting. She was a Class V River Guide. Lindsay and Jason worked this past summer as camp staff at Rock-N-Water, a Christian adventure camp in California.

Lindsay felt God's call early in life to be in full-time ministry, and while at college that call moved more specifically to an adventure camping ministry where she could work with children and youth using her love for the Lord to help them find hope and peace in this life.

Lindsay had accepted the Lord Jesus Christ as her personal Savior at a young age. She grew in her love for Him and was very committed to her relationship with Him. She was a woman of high moral and spiritual character and had a heart for serving the Lord by serving others. She was known by her fellow staff members at Rock-N-Water as a great encourager who would stay up long into the night ministering God's healing grace to hurting campers. She lived her life with a passion to please and glorify her Lord. Her parents could not be more pleased with her.

Lindsay and Jason were to be married Sept. 11, 2004 in Fresno. They were known as a couple who were "made for each other." They shared a love for the Lord, for the church, for people and for Christian ministry and the Lord chose to allow them to enter heaven together.

Lindsay is survived by her parents, Chris and Kathy (Knisely) Cutshall of Fresno; sister and brother-in-law, Kerry and Ben Croghan of Fresno; maternal grandparents, Russell and Jo Ellen Knisely of West Lafayette; and paternal grandmother, Roberta Cutshall of Chattanooga, Tenn.

Her paternal grandfather is the late Sam Cutshall of Chattanooga, Tenn.

A joint memorial service for Lindsay and Jason will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 4, 2004, at the First Church of the Nazarene, 1058 Orange St. in Coshocton. This will be a public worship celebration of their godly lives on earth and their glorious entrance into heaven.

In lieu of flowers, the Cutshall family requests that donations be made to Fresno Bible Church, P.O. Box 67, Fresno, OH 43824. Envelopes will be available at the Coshocton Nazarene Church or Free Funeral Home in Coshocton, who is handling local arrangements.
