Lindsy Rose was born Oct. 15, 1986 in Dickinson, the daughter of Allan and Margaret (Kilzer) Binstock. She was born with truncus arteriosis, a rare condition. She underwent her first open heart surgery when she was only six weeks old.
Throughout her life, Lindsy endured and persevered through numerous additional surgeries and hospital stays at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., sometimes for months at a time. Her doctors, caregivers, and fellow patients served as her peers, many becoming her family. Lindsy persisted, developing a fighting and adventurous spirit, unwavering in her faith and desire to live life to the fullest.
As the younger sister to three brothers, Lindsy grew up keeping up with her brothers, under their constant protection. She loved reading books with her dad. Her guidepost as a child, and young adult, was her mother. Lindsy grew up quiet in spirit and mighty in love for her family.
Lindsy attended school in South Heart, graduating with the class of 2005. Following graduation, Lindsy worked for Walmart for a couple years. In 2010, she moved to Bismarck to attend Bismarck State College, where she earned her associate degree in Business Administration. After graduation, she began working at the Bismarck Airport, where she worked various positions until 2015. Lindsy also worked for FedEx part time while employed at the airport. Most recently, she worked for Maid to Perfection.

She traveled in the company of friends and family, including her dearest friend and roommate, Deszirae.
