Meredith Ann Bischoff Lindsay

Meredith was born in Lansing on July 28, 1947, and was a graduate of Lansing primary schools and Eastern High School.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Carl and Marian (Hauenstein) Bischoff.  Meredith is survived by Stuart her husband of 35 years; sister, Deborah (Donald) Murray of Lansing, MI;  half-sisters, Penny Lee of Knotts Island, NC and Onalee Ursery of  Bradenton, FL; children, Krista (Jody) Chosa of Appleton, WI and Shelby (Scott) Butler of Charlotte, MI; loving stepchildren, Aileen (Jerry) Behl of Grandville, MI and Scott (Kim) Woltjer of Byron Center, MI; grandchildren, Rachael Behl of Grand Rapids, MI, Adrianna and Cassandra Butler of Charlotte, MI, McKenna, Sydney, and Mason Levanetz of Appleton, WI, Skylar Miller of Grandville, MI, Megan Woltjer of Grand Rapids, MI, Jacob (Kristin) Woltjer of Grandville, MI, Alex (Emily) Chosa of Denmark, WI, and Kayla Chosa of Crystal, MN; along with loving great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews.

Meredith graduated from Michigan State University in 1984 with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work followed by a Master of Social Work from M.S.U. in 1985.  She was a clinical social worker in the substance abuse field for 10 years, during which time she taught substance abuse courses at M.S.U., became a member of the Academy of Certified Social Workers, and was appointed a surveyor for the Council on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities.  Her interest in gerontology lead to joining the State of Michigan in 1995 as a surveyor on federal quality care standards at public and private nursing homes across Michigan. Her special interest in enhancing enforcement of standards for use of psychotropic medications among nursing home residents was recognized by federal officials at the time of her retirement in 2017.

Meredith enjoyed a life of learning, reading, nature study and spending time with beloved family and friends. She and her husband Stuart traveled widely and especially enjoyed the many waterfalls and other scenic beauty in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The funeral service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at the Estes-Leadley Greater Lansing Chapel. Her family will receive relatives and friends from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Friday at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, donations are encouraged to the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
