Lindy Simmons

2001-2021

Lindy was born on October 24, 2001, her mother’s birthday. She attended Acadiana Christian School (previously Assembly Christian School) from kindergarten onward. In high school, she played on the volleyball and softball teams, was homecoming queen, and helped with the yearbook. She was an active member of the youth group at Assembly Christian Center, was a member of the Missionettes, and took photos for the church. Her life was forever changed for the better after she went on a mission trip to El Salvador when she was 15.

After graduating from high school in 2020, she attended Nicholls State University with her two best friends, Yasmine and Cameron. Although she officially commuted, she usually stayed with Cameron during the week and returned home to Jeanerette on weekends, where she cherished time with her family, including Sundays at church with her mom. She also cherished time with her niece, Amielle, who was like a sister to her, and her nephew and godchild, Bregman, whom she had a special affection for him.

Lindy emitted joy that pulled others into her joyful orbit. She had a special way of intensely loving and connecting with people. She had recently grown in confidence and blossomed from a quiet girl into a true, radiant beauty, inside and out. Her laugh, smile, and sassy expressions will be missed. She had a sweet soul, caring nature, sense of humor, strong work ethic, and many talents.

Among her many creative talents, including an aptitude for making crafts and the ability to draw realistic still- life images, Lindy had a natural artistic eye for photography. In addition to photographing friends and family,

Lindy, Christopher, and Kamryn were the babies of their big, tight-knit family—the youngest of Dawn and Ray Simmons’s nine children. They grew up in Jeanerette with their paternal grandmother and aunt living right next door. As the babies of the family, the three were especially close to one another.

she professionally pursued her passion through her own photography business. She was recently honored to be sought out and hired as the student photographer at Nicholls, as well as to book her first wedding shoot.

Lindy loved a lot of things—wearing jewelry, getting her nails done, and spending time with family and friends. She was great with and adored kids, especially her niece and nephews, whom she loved with all her heart and volunteered to babysit any chance she got.

Lindy was always up for an adventure and went on many with Yasmine and Cameron, be it late-night coffee runs to New Orleans or road trips to far-off places. She loved trying out new restaurants and coffee shops, shopping, and going on long drives with friends and good music she took pride in discovering. Whether Lindy and her friends were on an adventure or at home, there was never a dull moment with her expressiveness and sense of humor.

Lindy dreamed of becoming a successful photographer, working in marketing, and becoming a wife and mother some day. She hoped to have a big family, much like the one she grew up in.
