Martha Jo Lindsey, 70, died Saturday, November 7, 2020, at her home in Mantachie. She was born January 22, 1950, a daughter of Marlin “Frog” Evans and Maggie Curtis Evans. She graduated from Tupelo High School in 1968. She worked for Bellsouth for 33 years, starting as an operator and was a frame attendant upon retirement. She also worked at Saltillo Primary Lunchroom and was a victim/child advocate for Survival, Inc. She fought cancer for seven years and always ministered to others fighting cancer. Her caring heart and quick wit made an impression on so many through the years. When her health allowed her, she loved to be the Fairy Godmother at the LeBonheur Father/Daughter Ball every year, and volunteering at her church, Ozark Baptist, with the Golden Believers. Her hobbies were crocheting, arts and crafts, and stained glass. She was a faithful fan of the Tennessee Volunteers football team and loved to sing “Rocky Top” when they scored. She was an animal lover, especially her dogs Loucille and Bodie. Her grandchildren and great-grandchild were the loves of her life, and she was eager to meet the newest great-grandson, Wyatt, due in a few weeks.
