Anita Fae Haskins Lindsay

Anita Fae Haskins Lindsay, age 77, passed away November 28, 2021, in Washington, UT. She was at her home and surrounded by family.

Anita was born in National City, CA on the 13th of March 1944, to Ben Fred Haskins and Nena Jewel Casper Haskins. Anita, the oldest of five children, was raised in Oklahoma with siblings Barbara, Darrell, Vicki and Diana. When Anita was 12, she was baptized by her grandfather, William Casper, into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Anita cherished her relationship with God, Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost. Over the years, she held many church callings, but teaching and working with the youth were her favorites.

Anita married Eddie Freeze in 1962 and was soon blessed with four sons: Kurtis, Kent, Brent (twins) and Bradley. Each of her sons brought great happiness to her. The boys took naturally to sports, and like their mom, they are all avid fans of Oklahoma Sooners football. But more importantly, they are dedicated and loving sons, husbands, fathers and grandfathers.

In 1985, Anita married Thomas Wayne Lindsay. With this marriage, she gained three more children: Tom, Janie and Joe. Anita and Wayne resided in Newcastle, OK and they made many wonderful memories. Her life was filled with family, and she would not have asked for it any other way.

Anita obtained her bachelor’s degree from the University of Oklahoma and then completed her master’s degree at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas after moving to Nevada in 1987. In her professional life, Anita taught Special Education. Over the course of a 32-year career, she taught thousands of children in Oklahoma, Nevada and Utah. She adored her students and teaching, and her students adored her.

After a life well-lived, Anita believed her greatest accomplishment was her family. Her greatest gift was her innate love for her fellow man, and her greatest desire was to share the gospel of Jesus Christ to all she could.

Anita held a special place in her heart for her parents as they taught her the gift of service that she then passed on to her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren in both word and deed. Her love for and service to those around her shaped her life and was an example to so many.

Anita is survived by her son, Kurtis (Lisa) Freeze of Las Vegas, NV, their two daughters and four grandchildren; Kent (Christine) Freeze of Henderson, NV and their five children; Bradley Freeze of Salt Lake City, UT and his three children; Tom Lindsay of Dallas, TX; Janie (Scott) Shackleford of Edmond, OK and her two daughters; Joe (Stacy) Lindsay of Naples, FL and their five children. She is also survived by her sisters Barbara McBride of Broken Arrow, OK; Vicki Phelps of Edmond, OK and Diana (Steve) Loveless of Orem, UT.

Anita is preceded in death by her parents Ben and Nena Haskins, her husband, Thomas Wayne Lindsay, her son, Brent Clark Freeze, and her brother, Darrell Haskins.

There will be a viewing Friday, December 3, 2021, from 5:30pm-7:30pm at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Washington Fields 5th Ward building, 1867 Washington Fields Rd.,Washington, UT.

Anita was my neighbor and coach in Oklahoma. She is the reason I love sports and have had a 32 year career myself as a special education teacher. We may have lived hundreds of miles apart, but I am who I am today in large part because of my relationship with her as a young girl in Oklahoma. None better!

I remember our fun times with Anita and Wayne. It started in Las Vegas. Playing cards and goodies. Three of our grandkids were students of Anita's. Our granddaughter was an Aid in her special needs class. We moved to St George and three years later Anita and Wayne moved here. Anita's love was unconditional like the Saviors. She knew what she wanted and where she was going. Teaching was Anita's special gift. Just like Anita her final goodbye was pizza and giggles.

Anita was the true Light of the Gospel to me. I remember the years she baked cookies for everyone at the school, not just her class. We would go to the school and frost hundreds of cookies!! She lived to serve others in any way she could out of pure love and never wanted ANY recognition!! She left a large imprint on and in my heart!! She will never be forgotten, never, I love her so!! Thank you Anita for loving, teaching and showing me the way!!!
