Lindsey A. Penrod

December 15, 1984 – October 1, 2021

It is always difficult to say goodbye to someone we love and cherish.  Family and friends must say goodbye to their beloved Lindsey Ann Penrod “Linard” of Omaha, Nebraska who passed away at the age of 36 from this life on October 1, 2021, surrounded by her family at the Clarkson Tower at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.  Lindsey was born December 15, 1984, in Holdrege, Nebraska.

Lindsey attended Millard South High School.  In recent months, Lindsey proved to herself and to the world that you can accomplish anything that is put in front of you by completing courses to receive her certification as a CNA.  Lindsey is well known at making the most of everyday opportunities.  She enjoyed traveling and attending live music concerts. Every year for her birthday, Lindsey would schedule an art painting class to express the beauty of life.  She cherished family and friends and was relentless in spending time going to her children’s sporting events, time at the lake with her sister, and passionately watching Husker football games.  Lindsey is a hero to many as she was able to donate her organs to give others an opportunity to live a life to the fullest.

Preceded in death by niece, Maliha Gavillan; ex-husband, Colter Bronstad; maternal/paternal grandparents; uncle; cousin.  Survived by father, Mark Penrod; mother, Virgina Penrod Gomez (Bert Gomez); sister, Kelsey Penrod (David Gaines); children: Jordan Penrod, Mercadese Bronstad, Jerzey Bronstad, Colter Bronstad, Jr.; her love, Daniel Richardson (fiancé); grandson, Braxton Lamer; nephew, Taelyn Turner; niece, Kendyl Gaines.

VISITATION: Tuesday, October 5th from 5pm to 7pm at the West Center Chapel, followed by TIME OF SHARING at 7pm.  In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to the Penrod Children’s Education Fund.

    I first met Lindsey and her 3 amazing children when they started elementary in Omaha. I had the honor of teaching Colter in 1st grade. The Bronstad’s are always very dear to our hearts. My heart aches for you. Please know your elementary school family is always here for you!
