Kathryn Jean Finlayson Obituary
Feb. 14, 1952 ~ Aug. 2, 2014
Kathryn Jean Finlayson died on August 2, 2014 in Salt Lake City of heart failure.
She was born to Vernon A. Finlayson and Kathryn Peterson Finlayson on February 14, 1952 in Denver, Colorado. She studied art at Westminster college, mentored by Don Doxey, and graduated with an art degree in 1978. Kathy was a well-known Utah artist who conducted one-person shows and participated several times in group shows, particularly the Spring Salon at the Springville Museum of Art, also winning several awards. She is known for her oil paintings and also her line art. Kathy is still with us in her artwork.
Because of her kind, loving and almost childlike spirit, she was dearly loved by her family and her loyal friends, who have been a great strength to her over the years. She was an animal lover and had many dogs, cats and horses. She jumped horses competitively and won awards with her horse Cameo. Horses often played a prominent role in her paintings. Her dog Amos' paw print could be seen on her paintings. She took care of her mother for many years and she was a frequent visitor of older relatives. Kathy was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Kathy was preceded in death by her parents and is survived by her brothers Dr. Keith N. Finlayson and wife Barbara of Salt Lake City and Dr. Paul A. Finlayson and wife Carol of Valencia, California.
Graveside services will be held at Wasatch Lawn Memorial Park, 3401 Highland Drive, on Friday, August 8, 2014 at noon.
