Mindy Lou Allred, age 58, of Roosevelt, passed away October 27, 2021, at her home.
She was born in Blytheville, Arkansas, to Randall and Cuba Lindsay Thompson. She married her sweetheart, Brad Allred, on March 19, 1982, in the Provo Temple. On that day, she told Brad she gave him her whole heart-and she did.
Mindy was vibrant and energetic, doing what most people do in a day in a single hour. She loved easily and unconditionally. She made each person she came in contact with feel seen and heard, and was a best friend to many. Her quick wit and laughter were amongst her most endearing qualities, and she was an animated storyteller. She was a talented seamstress and enjoyed traveling, reading, canning home-grown goods, and studying the gospel of Jesus Christ in great depth. She was a forever learner. Spending time in the mountains with her family brought her great joy and she truly marveled at the beauty there was to be found in the world and in life. Mindy loved music more than most and often joked that she was not given a beautiful singing voice in this life because she would've been unable to do anything else other than sing all day. Beautiful music was always played in her home. She was a talented pianist and passed her love of music on to her children.
Mindy was most passionate about two things in life: her family and the gospel of Jesus Christ. She served and gave of herself in both of these areas without limits. To her family, she was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, and loyal best friend. She had a unique and special relationship with each family member. She listened attentively and gave them the best advice. She rejoiced in their successes and happiness, and walked hand in hand with them through their trials and hardships. She was strong and gentle, protective and kind. Service was her love language and the service she gave to her family had a profound impact on all of their lives. Something that brought her great joy was thoughtful gift giving to those she loved most. She always managed to find something special and meaningful for every occasion and was continually planning a birthday, graduation, baptism, or holiday gift. She loved and adored her grandchildren. She was a special, fun, and present grandmother who will be deeply missed by the little ones.
Mindy was a spiritual giant and her faith and unwavering testimony strengthened and bolstered up all those around her. She served in many capacities in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved wholeheartedly the children and young women of the church, whom she served for most of her life. But perhaps her most treasured calling was serving weekly in the Vernal Temple as an ordinance worker over the last several years. She described herself as "giddy" each week as she prepared to go to the temple. In her spare time, she did genealogy work. She was currently enjoying her service at the Sr. Villa as Relief Society President, alongside her husband Brad, who is the Branch President there.
Mindy is survived by her husband of 39 years, Brad, of Roosevelt; children, Shayla (Logan) McCune, Round Rock, TX; Scott Allred, Myton; Levi (Crystal) Allred, Roosevelt; Shaun (Sydnee) Allred, Windsor, CO; Ariell (Kaden) Hardy, Logan; Jetson (Kenzie) Allred, Pflugerville, TX; 13 grandchildren; siblings, Corina (David) Sam, Vernal: David (Dawn) Thompson, Alaska; JenniLee Thompson, Vernal; Sally (Jeff) Coltrin, Riverdale, UT; Daniel Thompson, Roosevelt; Brandie (Nick) Keyser, Pleasant Grove; and numerous nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
