Linsey blessed this world on December 15, 1951 in Austin, Texas. She was the pride and joy of her parents, Floyd and Doris Sellstrom and the best big sister to her little brother, Philip.
Linsey peacefully transitioned from this life on June 24, 2021 unexpectedly while on vacation with family members.
Linsey had many titles, but the most precious one to her was “Mimi”. She loved her MRC (Madi, Riley, Chance) unconditionally and was their number one fan and supported them in all of their activities. She would burn up the roads to get to their games, stock shows, practices, award banquets and functions. Linsey never missed an opportunity to cheer on her grandchildren. Her stadium seat has seen countless venues and her cowbell went everywhere with her, even when it wasn’t allowed. She was always there with an encouraging word, win or lose. Her Dripping Springs HS, Johnson City HS, ASU and A&M shirts were always ready to go at moment’s notice. She wore them with pride!
It was always Linsey and her girls, Leigh and Christy against the world. Her love of family was palpable. Linsey always brought the fun to every family gathering. Her best moments were spent loving her family with all of her heart.
She cherished her time at the beach and “Eureka Ranch” in Rocksprings, Texas. She loved being there during deer season, where there was always a nice warm bonfire waiting for her. She always said the stars just shone brighter at Eureka Ranch.
Linsey also loved anything furry. She fed her deer, rock squirrels, foxy and any other creatures who were lucky enough to wander into her little nature sanctuary in her front yard. Morning coffee on the front porch with her deer and the blues playing was her idea of heaven. To Linsey, it was the little things that made life worth living.
Linsey’s love language was music. The soundtrack of her life included all genres but the blues made her “wiggle”. She was most impressed with the bass guitar; or was it the bass players? She said they just looked “so cool”.
Linsey was so proud to be a third generation Texan. She loved everything about our Great State. Her theme song was “What I Like About Texas” by Gary P. Nunn. One of her favorite things to do was jumping in the truck and going on backroad trips with a handy “Happy Pack” in the back seat. Sights and sounds of Texas brought her great joy. The long days spent on the lake with family and friends to watching the sun go down from her front porch on Lake Travis brought her so much happiness.
Linsey never met a stranger; just friends she hadn’t spoken to yet. Her acceptance of people without reservation was one of her greatest qualities. She made so many friends in public restrooms. If you were lucky enough to run into her, you left knowing that you had just experienced something special. She had an open, loving heart and unlimited compassion for everyone. She is dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
Linsey (Mimi) is survived by her father, Floyd Sellstrom; her daughters Leigh Berkholz and husband Bob, and their two daughters Madi and Riley; Christy Bible Glass and her son Chance Glass. Other survivors include Uncle Don Hester and Aunt Betty Hester and their entire Round Rock family. Other survivors include cousins, countless friends, in-laws and outlaws!
Linsey was preceded in death by her husband, Mike Clark; mother, Doris Sellstrom, and her little brother Philip Sellstrom.
We’ll all hold Mimi in our hearts and minds until we’re reunited again in our Lord’s kingdom.
Memorial Service will be 3:00PM Sunday, July 11, 2021 at Harrell Funeral Home of Dripping Springs, 100 Heritage Dr., Austin, TX 78737.
