Born July 13, 1963, in Porterville, Lauren f rst moved to Greenville in 1965, when her parents, John Lindskog and Lynne Evarts, founded Coppercreek Camp. Lauren spent . the early part of her childhood in Indian Valley, and later moved to Oakhurst. Throughout her middle and high school years, Lauren was an avid athlete, playing multiple team sports. Upon graduating from Yosemite Union High School in 1981, Lauren attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, where she was very actively involved in outdoor recreation programming. She was awarded a Rotary Scholarship to spend her post grad year at the University of Kent, in Canterbury, England. At the age of 21, she undertook a coast-to-coast bike trip across the United States, beginning in San Diego and ending in Massachusetts several months later. After obtaining her teaching credential at UC Davis, Lauren lived and worked in the Truckee area. She was a teacher at Squaw Valley Academy and also worked m the race 6 partmen . ne Coppercreek Camp remained a fixture in Lauren's life from the time she was a toddler. She was present at camp for 48 summers as a camper, counselor in training, cabin counselor and riding instructor. She eventually moved into the role of camp director. Her love for the backcountry led her to create Coppercreek's TREK program, a high-adventure leadership program for teenagers. TREK has run every summer since she founded it in 1985. Since her parents' deaths in 2004 (Lynne) and 2005 (John), Lauren ran Coppercreek alongside her friends and business partners Becky and Craig Hogland. A gifted horsewoman, Lauren took the lead in building Coppercreek's Equestrian Centre into one of the most comprehensive summer camp equestrian programs in the Western U.S. Year-round, up to 50 horses benefited from her attentive care and training. During the summer season, her deep love for the animals, her commitment to safety and her constant drive to improve her own horsemanship made her a role model to both staff and campers. The greatest light and love in Lauren's life was her daughter, Sutter Lynne Allen, who was born in 1992. Sutter attended Greenville Elementary, Taylorsville Elementary and Greenville High School (Class of 2010). In 2013, Sutter graduated from the University of California, Davis, with a bachelor's degree in community and regional development. Lauren's love for horses was passed on to Sutter, and some of their best times together were spent driving all over the state to attend horse shows and events. Lauren and Sutter moved permanently to Greenville in 1998, where Lauren dove into community life with great enthusiasm. She was a frequent volunteer for school events, and took on the role of middle and high school ::: olleyball coach formanyyears As:a,coach, Lauren saw the unique potential in each of her girls, believing that the experience of belonging to a team should not be limited only to elite athletes. She spent countless hours organizing uniforms, tournaments and transportation for her teams. In addition to her coaching duties, Lauren was a frequent volunteer at community events and fundraising campaigns, and a substitute teacher in the local schools. In recent years, Lauren rediscovered a love for photography, taking gorgeous photos of local scenery and people. She shared her home and her heart with long-term sweetie Jared Tappero (Sutter's "Daddy-J'). In addition to Sutter and Jared, Lauren will be deeply missed by brothers Mike Lindskog, of Houston, Texas, Matt Evarts; of Santa Cruz, and Eric Lindskog, of Portland, Oregon; sister Stephanie West, of Huntington Beach; sister-in-law Morgan Evarts; precious niece and nephew Mia and Mitchell Evarts;. aunts Leslie Ayers and Leda Ballard and uncle Ken Ballard; and dear friends and business partners Becky and Craig Hogland, as well as their daughters Ryleigh and Makenna. Countless cousins, nieces, nephews and friends will miss her beaming smile and caring heart. A hole has been left in the hearts of many loved ones, all over the world, as well as those of her neighbors in Indian Valley. No list of accomplishments can adequately capture Lauren's generosity of spirit, kindness of heart or bright sense of adventure. She saw the good, special and most essential parts of all of us, and by so doing, helped us to see the good in ourselves. She was a steward for Mother Nature, and an advocate for animals of every kind; she believed that family is more than flesh and blood, that we all need community and that we have a responsibility to look after one another however we can ............ Our world is a poorer place without her, and there is no doubt that she would be humbled by the depth and breadth of her own legacy.

Operations teams and Frontier management are taking steps to prepare, including the following: --Equipping fleet vehicles with extra fuel, fluids and lighting, --Double-checking all safety equipment and supplies used by field technicians. --Placing emergency network supplies throughout company facilities. --Taking inventory of supplies that will be needed in the aftermath of severe weather for network restoration. As part of its preparations, the company is issuing the following reminders. Stay away Stay far away from any downed cables or power lines and report them to your local municipality. To report service disruptions, business customers should contact Frontier at 800-921-8102, and residential customers should call 800-921-8101. Prepare Take preventive steps to be sure you can communicate in the event commercial power is lost: --Avoid relying solely on cordless phones by plugging a traditional corded phone directly into the wall jack. In the event of a commercial power outage, corded phones will still operate; cordless'ones will not. If commercial power is unavailable, generators and batteries in Frontier's central offices serve as a backup so phone service will remain available and voicemail boxes will continue to operate. --Be sure wireless devices such as cellphones, laptops and tablet devices are all charged in advance of severe weather. --Make sure you have food supplies, water, flashlights and a battery powered radio in case you are unable to leave your home.
