Grace Lindsay Asay

April 6, 1937 – March 14, 2022

Grace Lindsay Asay died March 14, 2022. She was born April 6, 1937, in Lovell to Geralda Franzoni and Edwin LeRoy Lindsay. Grace was the youngest of eight children. 

She attended school in Lovell. She loved sports and had many good friends. She met the love of her life, Jay William Banks Asay, and married him. After marriage, they moved to the family farm in Frannie. There they raised five children.

Grace devoted her life to her family, church and the farm. As a family, they loved to go to the mountains and visit Yellowstone National Park on the days away from the farm, where they raised dairy cows. Grace was not only a busy homemaker, she also helped drive tractor and put up hay.

She loved her children immensely. One thing she truly enjoyed was shopping with her daughter, Toni, for beanie babies. They became addicts and developed quite the collection.

In July of 2021, Grace faced her own medical challenges when she fell and broke her hip. She was in and out of hospitals and rehab centers up until the day before Christmas, when she was finally able to return home. She was very thankful for her grandson, Shawn, who stayed with her at her home until the time of her death.

Grace was preceded in death by her parents; sisters Tressa Smith, Dorcus Anderson, Dorothy Brinkerhoff and Lora Dell Roby; brothers Roy, Ronald and Franz Lindsay; husband Jay Asay; son Jay Asay Jr.; daughter Tina Asay; and grandchildren Levi Loyning and Monica Cozzens Cotter.

She is survived by her daughters Penny Asay Cozzens, Debbie Asay Loyning and Toni Asay (Russell) Renner; eight grandchildren; and many great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank everyone who participated in making Grace’s funeral comforting, with special thanks to Ken Blackburn.

Services were held March 18 at the Cowley LDS Church. Interment was in the Deaver Cemetery.
