Lindsey Ann Klink tragically took her own life at our home on March 12, 2021. She was 13 years young.
Lindsey, lovingly known as “Lu” by her loved ones and friends, was born in Mora, Minnesota on May 30, 2007 to parents Kristy Nielsen and Jason Klink.
Always outgoing and charismatic she easily made friends and brought great joy to the lives she touched. Whether you knew her well or barely at all, she left a piece of her with you. Please remember her.
She was in the 8th grade at Mora high school. As tough as this past year has been for everyone, she was looking forward to the future. She had plans for the summer. Basketball camp, and summer practice so she’d be ready to hit the court her freshman year. Our first real family vacation to Lake Powell to visit her big sister. She was counting down the days til her 14th birthday so she could finally get a real job. Our grand adventures to new state parks to climb the rocks, wade in waters she had never touched, chase the waterfalls we had yet to find.
Lindsey is preceded in death by her great grandfather Ronald Mortenson, and aunt Sgt. Jennifer Nielsen.
She is survived by her mother Kristy Nielsen; father Jason Klink; siblings Taytum, Levi, Kennedy, Brody, Aubrie Klink; great grandmother Betty Mortenson; grandmother Becky Nielsen; grandfather Todd Nielsen; uncle Christopher Nielsen; as well as many other relatives and friends
Lu loved so many, and was loved by so many more. She gave her light to others selflessly, and she succumbed to the darkness feeling alone.
I promise you, you are stronger than you feel, and loved so much more than you could ever imagine. Please reach out if you are feeling alone, hopeless, broken. This struggle too shall pass. You are precious in this world.
