Lindsey Renea Shimp, 30, of Stephens City, VA graduated to her eternal reward on November 6, 2021 at the Winchester Medical Center. The same hospital in which she entered this life.
Lindsey was born July 5, 1991 to Jamie and Debbie Shimp. She is survived by her parents, her sister Tiffany McArtor (Drew) and her niece and nephew Ava and Dylan McArtor of Stephens City, whom she loved very very much. As well as her boyfriend Chris Pendleton of Mount Jackson, VA.
A celebration of her life/memorial service will be held at the Camp of Faith Church 635 Double Church Rd., Stephens City, VA 22655 on Saturday November 20 at 3:00 PM. All are welcome to join.
The family is requesting that those that would like to assist with that service, donate cookies, coffee supplies and bottles water one hour prior to the start of the service.
Lindsey will be remembered for her very generous heart. She was truly a giver.
Lindsey invited Jesus into her heart at a very young age, while watching a Christian children’s television show and asked her Mom to help her do that.
Lindsey’s heart was for the “different” folks in society. From a very young age, she was consistently drawn towards folks with physical and mental challenges. She worked with them at various organizations including Rescare, NW Works and Shenandoah Valley Community Residences, Inc.
She loved her family, friends, animals, sunflowers, the sky/moon/stars, the beach, nature walks and Lake Frederick was a very special place to her to go and find peace. She loved listening to Air1 on 92.5 FM and Steven Furtick on YouTube. God really spoke to her through those ministries, and they really brought healing & hope to her heart & soul.
Lindsey always embraced her uniqueness – what you saw with her was what you got – like it or not. She appreciated “real/genuine” and hated fake.
Though most never saw it firsthand; Lindsey had many challenges in her way too short life on earth, but she always got up, showed up and pressed through. She continually attempted to brighten people’s day and make them laugh.
The family requests that instead of flowers, those wishing to honor her life/memory, do so by donating to one or more of the following that were near and dear to Lindsey’s heart:
Hearing of people’s memories of Lindsey really helps her family, during this most difficult time. Please share those memories, so they may cherish them for years to come.
