The funeral service for Rochelle “Shelly” Lindquist, 66, of Balaton, will take place at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 4, 2020, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Marshall. A walk through visitation will be Thursday, September 3, 2020, from 4:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at the church, with sharing of memories at 7:30 p.m and continue one hour prior to the service on Friday. Interment will take place at Lakeside Cemetery in Balaton.

Rochelle, daughter of Paul and Lorraine (Maland) Larsen was born on September 2, 1953, among the majestic Rocky Mountains in Spanish Fork, Utah. She spent her early years in Orem, and later in Mapleton, Utah. After graduating from Springville High School, Shelly pursued an interest in becoming a beautician by attending Mary Kawakami’s School of Beauty in Provo, Utah.

She met Leo R. Lindquist while attending church together and were later married for time and eternity in the Manti Utah Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints on Friday, May 13, 1977. She enjoyed her work as a beautician before welcoming her son Chris into the world – the first of five. While pregnant with her fifth son, they made the move from Utah to Minnesota, where Leo was from.

Years passed and with all her boys in school, she found time outside of the home to help occasionally at the Balaton School, in the kitchen and as an aide, and, later to work as a part-time custodian for the Latter-Day Saints buildings in Marshall and Pipestone. Shelly loved collecting various dolls and became a gifted seamstress. She created clothing for herself and family, as well as countless items and gifts with needle and thread. Shelly was an avid reader and consumed dozens and dozens of books over many years. She worked hard and was a great asset to her husband and boys. She spent many summers tending the family vegetable garden and caring for her many plants and flowers around their acreage west of Balaton. She packed countless school lunches for her boys, mended their torn clothing, cut their hair, and treated their many scrapes and bruises. These simple and innumerable deeds attest to the boundless love and devotion she had for her family.

While under hospice care, she passed through the veil, at home with her family, into that great world of spirits, on August 26, at the age of 66 years, one week short of her 67th birthday. She is survived by her husband, sons Chris (and Krystal) of Litchfield, Minnesota; Brad (and Sarah) of Manassas, Virginia; Cameron (and Christyn) of Marshall, Minnesota, and Michael (and Lisa) of Waxahachie, Texas, as well as sixteen loved grandchildren, three sisters, and five brothers, and many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her mother, father, and premature son, David Reed.

From Arizona, Gary and I send our condolences and love for Leo and family and our respect for Shelly and the wonderful woman she was. Although it's been years since we lived in Minnesota, I have carried with me memories of Shelly and what it was so easy to admire about her. Shelly wasn't just a gardener, she was a master-gardener with a green thumb that was enviable and the skills, knowledge, and work ethic that resulted in equally enviable harvests and beauty. But it didn't stop there. Those bountiful harvests were turned into an abundance of goodness that sustained and warmed her family through equally well-developed skills and that same work ethic in the kitchen. Then, too, Shelly wasn't just a seamstress, she was a true artist. Among her amazing creations and works of skilled art were the beautiful period wedding dresses she created for "Barbie" dolls. I once asked her why she didn't sell them, knowing she could have done very well by so doing. She replied that she did it for enjoyment and relaxation and that would ruin it for her. If I recall correctly, there were no patterns when I watched her hands seemingly effortlessly, expertly, turn balls of thread into stunning creations. It seemed that whatever work she turned her hands and attention to resulted in Blue-Ribbon results. Shelly faced many storms in her life and I remember one. One morning when I awoke and went downstairs, I saw the snowstorm from the night before had left a beautiful winter wonderland in Marshall. Sitting on the stairs by the window, I dialed Shelly's number as I gazed on the serene beauty in the yard. As Shelly answered the phone, I said, "Oh, isn't it beautiful outside?" She emphatically responded, "Beautiful!?!!" And went on to share just as emphatically that the storm the night before in Balaton had wreaked havoc and devastation at her house, taking down the wonderful tree in the middle of her deck, along with the deck itself. She weathered that storm and the worrisome outcome and did what had to be done to restore order and beauty to her world. And I can't imagine otherwise than that she weathered the last storm she faced in this life with the same effort and willingness to see it through. But this time, future storms will no longer hinder or hurt. This time, the passing storm finds her in a place of love, healing, warmth and beauty that this world can never touch but briefly. May you continue to be comforted. May you all feel Shelly's love and influence day-to-day and year-to-year as you follow in her faithful footsteps and meet life and its challenges like she did, disciplining, refining, working, growing and giving - and using the gifts and talents she was given to bless her family and the world around her.
