Nancy Alsup Lindsey

Nancy Alsup Lindsey died July 16, 2022, at Wexford House after a three year battle with cancer. She was born May 30, 1937, at Lee General Hospital in Pennington Gap, Virginia. She moved to Kingsport in 1954 and graduated from Dobyns Bennett High school in 1956. Nancy lived in Chattanooga, TN, for 33 years before moving back to Kingsport to take care of her ailing parents. Prior to her illness, Nancy was an active member of First Baptist Church of Kingsport, The Virginia Club, and The Order of the Eastern Star Nolachuckey Grand-View Chapter No. 194. She served as Worthy Grand Matron of The Eastern Star of the State of Tennessee in 1990 and was named Mrs. Chattanooga that same year. She took pride in living at Fort Henry Arms Condominiums where she was a board of director member and secretary treasurer for many years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Roy and Trula Alsup; and two husbands, William Alexander Tucker, Jr., and James Calvin Lindsey.

Nancy is survived by her daughter, Julia Leigh Tucker; grandson, Tucker Chase McKinney; great-grandchildren, Mattie Grace McKinney, Calvin Roy McKinney, and Alexander ‘Xander’ Ketih McKinney, all of Chapel Hill, NC.

As requested, her body was cremated and will be buried at Mountain Home National Cemetery along with her husband, James Calvin Lindsey.

I first met Nancy when she and her parents joined Glenwood Baptist Church shortly after they had moved to Kingsport. Our paths didn't cross that often in high school, but when they did, we had so much fun and always seemed to be on the same page. She was an elegant stately lady with a great sense of humor. She was very well-spoken and self confident which attracted people to her. I got to know her better at our DBHS reunions, which she helped with after she moved back to Kpt. I shall miss knowing she was going to be at the next get-together of our 1956 class, and that she and I would get together and have a private, boisterous laugh about whatever! The world was a more fun and beautiful place with Nancy in it.
