As the sun rose on the morning of July 26, 2022, Lindsay Tensmeyer Page (b. July 31, 1977) crossed the threshold of death into Paradise.
Lindsay fought valiantly a terminal cancer diagnosis for seven and a half years. Her desire to stay with her beloved husband and her four precious children trumped her diagnosis and gave her the strength and determination to soldier on.
She beat cancer. Crushed it, actually.
And even though her body couldn’t keep up with her unconquerable spirit, she never lost hope.
She never despaired.
Her faith was enlarged, and she continued to love and serve others, and was a friend, counselor and spiritual mentor to everyone around her.
Lindsay was a woman of many talents. She loved music and played the piano beautifully. She was also an avid, and adept gardener. She could keep anything alive and make everything thrive.
Her home was filled with greenery, always abloom, and her yard featured delightful plants, especially her garden. She always had a surplus of fresh vegetables, and her homemade salsa was a household staple, as well as a party favorite.
Lindsay was an incredible cook. She loved trying new recipes, and always shared her newfound favorites with family and friends.
She also loved to visit and could chat with anyone about anything for hours. Her home was always filled with friends, and going to lunch with her mother, sisters, or friends was a regular occurrence, and one of her favorite pleasures.
Lindsay loved to run, and always took great care of her physical body. She also loved to hike, or go for walks, where she set a clipping pace. Lindsay would “walk and talk” while her companions would “huff and puff.” Her aerobic capacity was further evidence of her magnificent heart.
Lindsay trained and excelled as a nurse, and always maintained an active license. She loved nursing, but she set it all aside in favor of her true passion–her family.
She was a true believer of Jesus Christ and followed His perfect example in every aspect of her daily life
As a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, she served joyfully in the Primary, Relief Society, Young Women’s and Sunday School.
Her life was dedicated to loving, nurturing, and serving others. Not even cancer could stop her ceaseless service. Even when she became too weak to stand, she would still muster her limited strength to give a loving, unforgettable embrace, a heart-felt hand squeeze, and a powerful “I love you.”
As her closing hours were drawing nigh, people came from far and wide to say their final goodbyes. No one wanted to leave her side for to be in her presence was to be in the presence of the divine.
Her soul had been completely refined.
The steady stream of visitors–and their expressions of love and admiration–attested to her profound impact for good, and a life well-lived as a disciple of Jesus Christ.
Lindsay was a lighthouse. She lived great and she died great, and her legacy of love, light, and goodness will never die.
Lindsay is survived by her husband, Ryan Page and their four children: Jack (currently serving a mission in Los Angeles, Farsi-speaking), Eden, Isaac and Crue; her parents—David and Gayle (Foulger) Tensmeyer, and all of her siblings and their spouses; Daniel (Holly) Tensmeyer,
Tricia (Jason) Leak, and Jodi (Mark) Hansen; by Ryan’s family members: Steven and Susan (Savage) Page, Janelle, Sharee, Matthew (Rachel) Page, and Shannon (Nathan) McConkie. She was preceded in death by her sister-in-law, and fellow cancer warrior, Annette Page by a mere 26 days.
The family would like to thank the Webb Lane Ward for their countless acts of Christian service, and all of the family and friends who have supported Lindsay and her family these last seven and a half years.
The family would also like to thank all of the doctors, nurses, and amazing medical personnel at the Huntsman Cancer Research Center who treated Lindsay. She loved and appreciated you, and we are all eternally grateful for your kindness, compassion, and genuine care. Thank you to all the men and women who devote their lives searching for a cure for cancer. The quest will one day meet success.
