She co-owned and operated the family dairy farm with her husband and sons. She also served as secretary-treasurer of Paul Lindley and Sons Inc. from 1978 to 2011.

Baking and spending time with her grandchildren brought her special enjoyment.

Lindley of Eighty Four; five grandchildren, James Lindley, Christopher Allender, John Lindley, Ross Lindley and Roy Lindley Jr.; two stepgrandchildren, Jeremiah Higgins and Jessica Wright; 20 great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews; two sisters, Dorothy Haines and Anne Winkleblech; and one brother, Glenn Barr.

Deceased, in addition to her husband, are a granddaughter, Jill Woshner; one brother, Howard Barr; and one sister, Edna Souleret.
