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.

  5. I’d like to take a few moments to sincerely thank you all for the tremendous outpouring of care from our communities. The meals, financial support, cards, emails, calls, texts, flowers, and all the gifts to the girls have been deeply appreciated and received. The girls and I are doing as well as can be expected given the circumstances. I cry a lot, and I don’t hide it from our daughters, I think it’s an important part of our process as we move forward and talk about everything that has happened. My goal since the beginning was to do whatever I needed to do to be the best father and human being I can be, to make Lindsay proud, and show up as the man of her dreams as we navigated this path.

    Lindsay was a very rare and special human being, and I will always cherish the time we had together. Shortly after knowing her, I commented early in our relationship that I was certain she had been worshiped by entire civilizations in past lives. I’m feeling even more confident in that statement now. She was a natural teacher and healer, and I continue to reflect on all that she taught me and likely taught many of you as well. Although her body has fully transitioned, she will always remain in our hearts and in our minds, and be found in the beauty all around us when we are willing to genuinely pause and listen to what she has to share. Juliet already understands this and continues to reflect it back to me daily which has been humbling.

    I am so grateful to have a team that was able to support me being away from work for the last month while I cared for Lindsay. We are supported in and out of the home with the girls as I begin to transition back and try to figure out what actually matters and what I want to feed and nourish in this world going forward.

    The true gift of this partnership with Lindsay was revealed to me during our last hospital stay in January. A wisdom I feel incredibly grateful to have been graced with so early in life and something I can embody and share with our girls as we journey forward together. It first came to us both, more as a feeling as we stared deeply into one another, and then we were able to define it with language. The only thing that really truly matters that we have here is love. It is the only thing we can take with us, and the only thing we leave behind. This very visceral experience with Lindsay’s early departure has been terrifying, and at the same time incredibly profound and beautiful. I didn’t have to wait until I was old and near the end of my path to hear this sweet secret whispered through the glow of her eyes and the warmth of her heart. Love is the beginning, and the middle, and the end. It is the only real joy our life force comes to weave, witness, and celebrate here on this plane. Simply a sincere appreciation and admiration of the depths and powers of the human heart experience.

    She promised me before passing over that she would come back and make it very clear to me that she was ok. What transpired over the last two weeks is of sci-fi like quality, what some would call a miracle I suppose, and what some of us would simply smile and refer to as “Lindsay being Lindsay.” Lindsay is so very much alive and well. We are so much more than our physical bodies. If you truly knew Lindsay, then you already know this. It was a shared belief (among many) that bonded us. My appreciation for what is beyond here has deepened profoundly through the miracle of Lindsay. I’m left holding intense grief in one hand as I mourn the loss of her loving physical presence around me and the girls daily, and simultaneously holding an unlimited well of inspiration and admiration in the other hand. Here is to the terrifying and beautiful journey of fully loving one another… and I will most definitely see you on the other side my magnificent queen.

    I love you so much.

  6. Lindsay was a beautiful soul and she will live in our hearts always. I am honored to have known Lindsay and experienced her loving presence. She was so kind and compassionate and a blessing to all those who knew her. Much love to Jesse, Juliette and Phoebe as you make the transition into your lives now without her physical presence with you. I send you strength, courage and love.

  7. It is, indeed, the love that never dies. Your bond, forged between the two of you and embodied in your beautiful daughters, transcends this life. The stronger the bond made here, the deeper the connection to the hereafter.
    Your journey with your Beloved continues. I acknowledge the pain of the transition you are in the middle of and the brilliance of the path ahead for you and your family.

  8. Lindsay was a great yoga instructor. I am glad that I got to experience her teaching. You could tell that she was a remarkable person. Sending love and compassion to the family during this time and the coming years.
