September 2, 1983 - March 1, 2020
Lindsay Anne (Connor) Stetson, 36, of Columbia, S.C., died Sunday, March 1. Born in Scranton, Pa., on Sept. 2, 1983, she was the daughter of James Aloysius and Catherine Anne (Ciocca) Connor of Scranton. She was also the wife of Thomas Stetson and loving mother of Connor Stetson.
Lindsay was raised in the West Scranton community and graduated from Scranton Preparatory School in 2001. While in high school she lettered in softball and was captain of the cheerleading team. Lindsay then attended the University of Pittsburgh, where she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in 2005. After graduation, Lindsay remained at the University of Pittsburgh until 2006 where she earned credit towards her master’s degree and received her national teaching certificate.
She met her husband, Thomas Jay Stetson, in May 2004 while they were both college students and neighbors. They later relocated from Pittsburgh, Pa., to Davenport, Iowa, where Lindsay taught school and Thomas pursued his doctorate degree. After Tom graduated and a brief stay in Florida, they settled in Columbia and co-founded Columbia Family Chiropractic in 2010. Lindsay and Tom married on Sept. 10, 2011, and welcomed their son, Connor Thomas Stetson, in August 2013. Lindsay took great joy in being a mother and supporting her husband in his chiropractic practice. She was involved in various local charitable organizations and had just recently started SpreadJOY, a nonprofit organization focused on giving directly to people and families in order to make an immediate and significant impact of joy in their lives.
Lindsay had a heart of gold and a smile that would light up the room. She had an infectious laugh that she shared freely with everyone she knew. She fought her disease for almost three years. The whole time she focused on others and spreading joy to those with whom she interacted. She made friends wherever she went and held on to them. She was deeply loved by her husband and son, as well as her family.
Survivors include her parents, James Aloysius Connor and Catherine Anne Connor; husband, Tom Stetson; son, Connor Stetson; brother, James Connor (Joanna) and their children, Cashel, Garren and Declan; sister, Katlyn Connor and her child, Maliya Barnes; brother, Casey Connor; paternal grandfather, James Connor (Nori).
