Agatha Marie Lindemann

 

Agatha Marie Lindemann, 95, went home to be with her Lord, her family, and friends on Tuesday July 11, 2023 while under the care of Hospice of Western Kentucky .  Agatha was born on May 30, 1928 in Livermore to the late Edward and Catherine Scherm Lindemann. She graduated from St Joseph High School in Owensboro and attended Webster Grove College in St. Louis to study art. She was employed at Sears Roebuck and Co. in the credit department until the department closed. Agatha lived in the family home and took care of her dad until he died at the age of 96 in 1992. In her later years, she sold the home  and moved into assisted living at the Carmel Home in Owensboro.

Agatha enjoyed drawing and painting, especially in water colors. Some of her paintings can be found in the homes of her family, friends, and along the hall in the Carmel Home. Agatha enjoyed spending time with her family and friends and especially loved family get togethers where she was known to take many family pictures, always wanting a second picture just in case the first one wasn’t good. One of her unusual skills was the ability to find four-leaf clovers. She could go into any yard and come in the house with four or five four-leaf clovers. Agatha also enjoyed her computer which allowed her to see and talk to her far away family and friends. Her computer was very important to her until it began to fail in the past few months. Perhaps it is appropriate that she and her computer began to fail at the same time and it would be difficult to imagine either without the other.

She valued her Catholic faith very much. Many priests including Fr. John Bartholomucci, TOR,, Fr. Ed Bradley, Fr. Suresh Bakka, Fr. Jegin Puthenpurackal, and Fr. John Okoro made her faith very alive for her. The Carmel Home became a peaceful haven for her the last years of her life. She made many good friends there among the staff and residents. Being able to attend daily mass was most important to her even though her loss of hearing hindered her from hearing most homilies. In the dining room, she particularly looked forward to Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturday mornings when biscuits and gravy were served .

Her parents and an older sibling, Mary Ann Burke and her husband William, preceded her in death. She is survived by a sister, Barbara (John--deceased) Dixon of Utica, and two brothers, Michael (Gloria) Lindemann of Denton, Maryland and David (Edna) Lindemann of Ft. Wright, KY. She leaves behind many nieces, nephews, and cousins that stayed in touch with her. After Agatha gave up her drivers license, Kathy Dixon Thompson, and especially, Ann Marie Dixon spent many hours taking her to her doctor appointments and helping her with material needs outside the Carmel Home. They went above and beyond anyone else.

For everything Agatha did, big or small, she did with great love. Her last days were very good days, surrounded by so much love and prayers. There is no doubt when she was greeted by all her family and friends that have gone before her, she gave her warm hugs to them all then started asking them many questions about what they have been up to. If there was one thing known of Agatha, she always wanted to know how and what everyone was doing.

A special thanks to the staff at the Heartford House for their great care and love during her final days, and to the Carmel Home staff and residents, especially the Sisters and Fr. Ray Clark for their love and support to Agatha and her family.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 11 AM Monday, July 17, in the Chapel of the Carmel Home.  Burial will follow in Resurrection Cemetery.  Visitation will be from 9:45 AM until 10:45 AM Monday at the Carmel Home.
