Mendle "Lindy" Lindblad

June 30, 1929 — February 7, 2022

Mendle “Lindy” DelVon Lindblad passed away on February 07, 2022 in Belleville, KS.  Lindy was born on the family farm in Republic County, KS, on June 30th, 1929.  He was the youngest of five children born to John Emil and Anna Sandell Lindblad.

Lindy celebrated his 92nd birthday last June at the Belleville Health Care Center where he had been a resident since 2013.  He attended the Courtland school system, graduating from high school in 1947.   He was very proud of his Swedish heritage.

He so enjoyed talking, working and socializing with his many friends and acquaintances in Republic County.  Lindy was a faithful lifelong member of the Ada Lutheran Church in Courtland (Kackley Community), KS.

Lindy lived in Republic County his entire life, with the exception of his Army military service starting in 1951.   After his father’s death, he was his mother’s sole caregiver until her death in 1980.   Lindy worked as a butcher in north central Kansas for many years.  He eventually owned and operated his own grocery store in Courtland, KS, “Lindy’s Market”.   Prior to his retirement on November 2012, he worked for Pawnee Mental Health Services, in Concordia, KS as a van driver.  Lindy frequently volunteered for many community events, including the annual sausage making fundraiser at the Ada Lutheran Church.

Lindy is preceded in death by his parents, all four of his siblings, brother Ercel, and sisters Emmeline, Eleanor, and  Anona (Toni) Kyle.  Until health issues restricted his driving, he made frequent visits  to his sister’s and brother-in-law’s home in Salina, KS. For decades Lindy participated in family holiday dinners at  his niece’s, Marcia (Kyle) Rinehart. Marcia and her family hosted many beautiful holiday dinners in Leawood, Kansas.  Lindy so enjoyed engaging with his family during these special times and brought gifts of wine and some incredible herring.  He is also survived by his nephew, Dana Kyle, formerly of Manhattan, KS.

Lindy (Del to his immediate family) will be remembered for his very tall, strong physique, his easy smile, and his engaging conversation. The family wishes to thank the doctors, nurses, and staff at both the Belleville Health Care Center and the Belleville Hospital for the many years of professional and loving care they provided to Lindy.  Lindy greatly appreciated the many acts of kindness over the years from his relatives and friends.

Funeral Services will be at the Ada Lutheran Church, rural Courtland, Kansas, on Friday, February 11th, 2022, at 2:00 pm, burial will follow at the church cemetery. The services will be recorded, and available on the funeral home website for family and friends unable to attend the services.
