October 5, 1948 - June 15, 2021
Cathy Dollar Lindstrom, 72, of Ann Arbor (and Palm Coast, Florida) passed away peacefully Tuesday, June 15, 2021, with her family by her side. Cathy was born October 5, 1948 in Newton, New Jersey to the late Gilbert and Eleanor (Thomas) Dollar. On August 17, 1968 she married George W. Lindstrom and is survived by him and her two children, Heather (Lindstrom) Mikles (Mark Mikles) of Raleigh, North Carolina, and Eric Lindstrom (Erin Hoey) of Ann Arbor, Michigan; her five grandchildren, Chloe and Brooke Mikles of Raleigh, North Carolina, and Kate, Andrew, and Caroline Lindstrom of Ann Arbor, Michigan, and by her sister, Debbie (Dollar) Daraio (Colin Daraio). Cathy attended Monmouth University, Long Branch, New Jersey from 1966-68, and subsequently achieved her Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from William Paterson University. Following her move to Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1977, she began her teaching career in the Saline Area School System which spanned 30 years while also earning her Masters degree from Eastern Michigan University in Elementary Reading. In 1977 she and her husband joined Travis Pointe Country Club as charter members. There she became an active member, enjoying meeting many new friends and finding a passion for tennis, racquetball, and golf. She enjoyed her annual trips to Key West, Florida for New Years Eve, and Cancun, Mexico. Her other travels included trips to London, Paris, Italy, and Alaska. Always willing to try new things, she enjoyed skiing, scuba diving, and zip lining. She will be remembered for hosting her annual fireworks party in June and coordinating the Saturday football tailgate parties on Potter Street topped off by the traditional chocolate chip cookies and hot apple pies! Many other passions were part of her life, including playing mahjong or spending countless hours reading. Outside her passion for her family and grandchildren she was completely dedicated to her teaching profession. Upon her retirement in 2011, she and her husband became “snow birds” spending winters in Palm Coast, Florida where she quickly acclimated to her new environment, providing joy and entertainment on the golf course to her many new friends. She loved cruising on the Intracoastal Waterway in “The Last Dollar” always on the lookout for dolphins and manatees. The newest addition to Cathy’s family, her morkie puppy Peaches, was always by her side. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, June 19, 2021 at 12:00 Noon at the Robison-Bahnmiller Funeral Home in Saline, MI. A luncheon will follow the service and be held at the Travis Pointe Country Club. Friends may join the family for a time of visitation at the funeral home on Friday, June 18, 2021 between the hours of 5:00 P.M. and 8:00 P.M. and again at the funeral home on Saturday from 11:00 A.M. until the time of service at 12:00 Noon.
