Lindsay Lyn Skinner, 32, of Taylorville, passed away at 8:34 p.m. on Saturday, April 3, 2021 surrounded by her family at her parent’s residence.

Lindsay was born May 8, 1988 in Taylorville, the daughter of Bill and Dwanna (Donner) Kelmel. She married Robert “Rob” Skinner on August 28, 2010 at the First United Methodist Church of Taylorville.

Lindsay graduated from Tayloville High School with the Class of 2006. After high school she was employed by CNB Bank & Trust in Taylorville, but found her work family at United Community Bank/BancMac in Springfield.

Lindsay will be remembered as a warrior: A Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer Thriver. Through her Facebook posts, she reached many; advocating and sharing her journey with all. Lindsay had the biggest heart, and she lived for giving and encouraging others. She made a donation every chance she could, and no angel was left behind on a tree. Her passion was her love of everything outdoors. She could be found lounging poolside at her home with family and friends. She loved camping, and the peaceful serenity of a boat ride. Taking a monthly trip to any zoo was a must – the goats being her favorite. Lindsay was a loving and supportive wife, and she devoted her life to her daughter, Madi. She was a beloved daughter, adored sister, and cherished auntie.

She was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Harold Donner; paternal grandparents, Bob and Frances Frost; uncle, Dave Kelmel; cousins, Davina Gebauer and Philip Schwab; and her beloved, furry companion, Max.

Lindsay is survived by her husband, Robert Skinner and their daughter, Madison Kae of Taylorville; parents, Bill and Dwanna Kelmel of Taylorville; sister, Chrissy (husband, Brad) Tellor of Taylorville; grandmother, Beverly Donner of Taylorville; father-in-law and mother-in-law, James and Cheryl Manley of Taylorville; brother-in-law, Bryan (wife, Danyel) Skinner of Festus, Mo.; nieces, Justice (companion, John Welsh) Tellor and Abigail Fears; nephews, Bryeson Tellor, Chase Tellor, Mason Tellor, Marcus Durbin, and Joey Holems; and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Visitation: The family will receive guests from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at Shafer-Perfetti & Assalley Funeral Home, 202 W. Franklin Street, Taylorville, IL 62568.

Celebration of Life: 11:00 a.m. on Friday, April 9, 2021 at Shafer-Perfetti & Assalley Funeral Home, with Pastor Becky Lembke officiating.
