Lindsey K. Marcus

December 15, 1985 ~ June 5, 2019 (age 33)

Lindsey K. Marcus, age 33, passed away on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, of heart failure, after a long, brave battle with addiction. She is survived by her parents, Jeff and Patty (Splitt) Marcus, her daughter, Layla Harting, her sister, Patty Fanella (Marcus), brother-in-law, Michael, two nephews, Leo and Sam, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Lindsey was a beautiful, intelligent child of the suburbs. She was feisty and outspoken but would do anything for anyone. She always lit up the room with her smile and whip-smart sense of humor. She loved her friends and family deeply. She wanted to adopt every animal she saw. She felt most at peace, out on the lake, with her fishing line dropped in the water. She could instantly make an uncomfortable person, comfortable and she befriended every neighbor on her block. This amazing woman will be remembered for her kind heart. Lindsey wanted to live. She had plans and dreams. She had been decorating her new apartment to make it a comfortable and beautiful home for her daughter, who meant the world to her. 

Visitation for Friends and Family will be on Saturday, June 15, 2019, from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. at 1290 Sebring Circle, Elgin to share stories and celebrate the life of a truly beautiful soul.
