Lindsay Dalton Mallers, 39, passed away at her home in St. Louis, Missouri, after a year long battle with cancer, on the afternoon of March 15th, 2022, in her husband’s arms with her daughters nearby. She was born in Fort Wayne, IN on March 24, 1982.
During her life Lindsay also lived in Atlanta, Georgia, Indianapolis, Indiana and St. Louis, Missouri. She attended Indiana University Bloomington and the Atlanta School of Massage.
Lindsay was self-employed as a massage therapist, specializing in acupressure, reiki, and energy work. She was also a yoga teacher with emphasis on yin and restorative techniques, and taught anatomy for yoga teacher training multiple times a year.
Lindsay was passionate about health and wellness, vipassana meditation, introspection, and putting good things into the world. She loved spending time in nature, consciously parenting from her heart, and creating a healthy, nurturing, and empowered home for her two daughters to thrive within. She adored her little girls and spent most evenings with her husband reliving all the wonderful delights she witnessed as they grew into their hearts more and more each day. She lived a life that was infused with intention, kindness, gratitude, love, and a very playful sense of humor. She was a radiant light in every space she entered.
Lindsay is survived by her husband Jesse Kuhn, daughters Juliet Christine and Phoebe Kay, mother Christine Mallers, father Peter Mallers, brother George Mallers and nephew Rexton Mallers.
Lindsay was cremated outdoors on her 40th birthday at the Double Rainbow Ranch (Niwot, CO) in an all day ceremony from sunrise to sunset with Mother Earth supporting her body during this final rite of passage out in nature where she loved to be. An intimate gathering surrounded her with love to honor, witness, and remember the miracle of Lindsay as she fully transitioned back to the sacred elements of earth (pritvi), water (jala), fire (tejas), wind (vayu), and space (akasha). A celebration of life gathering will be held in late April in St. Louis, MO. Details still to be coordinated. Her ashes will be spread around the world over the coming years by her daughters and husband as they navigate their futures with her love in their hearts.
Remembering Lindsay: We are working on compiling short videos of family and friends sharing their favorite memories of Lindsay for her daughters Juliet and Phoebe to have as a resource to revisit and learn more about their mother as they grow older. Please submit your video before the end of April. It’s very easy to create from a smartphone and upload to this link:
Lindsay was always passionate about her family, friends, and communities she was a part of. We hope to have you in attendance with us to celebrate her life on April 24, from noon to 8pm at the World’s Fair Pavilion in Forest Park. Lindsay and her family spent a lot of time here and have many special memories in and around this space soaking up the beautiful views and fresh air. We would be overjoyed to share all the happiness that she brought to both our lives and yours with each other. Light food and drinks will be provided and if you would like to contribute any food or snacks as well that would be wonderful too. Please dress for a gathering of friends rather than a funeral. This will symbolize the completion of end of life services and celebrations for her husband and daughters so they may fully begin their journey towards healing and recovery from this deep loss they have been witness to.
There will also be a morning yoga flow and meditation held in Lindsay’s honor at the space prior to the event. Exact time and details for this to be announced later.

Meditations Before Kaddish
WHEN I DIE give what’s left of me away
to children and old men that wait to die.
And if you need to cry,
cry for your brother walking the street beside you.
And when you need me, put your arms around anyone
and give them what you need to give me.
I want to leave you something,
something better than words or sounds.
Look for me in the people I’ve known or loved,
and if you cannot give me away,
at least let me live in your eyes and not in your mind.
You can love me best by letting hands touch hands,
and by letting go of children that need to be free.
Love doesn’t die, people do.
So, when all that is left of me is love,
give me away.
