COLLINS, Linda Jane  
COLLINS, Linda Jane Mrs. Linda Jane Collins, aka, LJ, LJC, Collins, Linder, Linney, L.J. Babe, Lin, Sis, Mom and Grandma, moved to Heaven, on March 13, 2015. She was born to Ray and Marilyn Brian on October 26, 1948, in Upland, CA, and lived most of her life in Spokane, WA. Linda graduated from Shadle Park H.S. in 1967 and attended SFCC. Linda Jane married the "Love of her life," Thomas Collins on November 15, 1975. She worked for Pacific Metal Co., Spokane Christian Center, and Healing Rooms Ministries. Linda would want others to know that she belonged to Jesus, having received Him as Lord and Savior while skiing at Alpental in December 1971. As an Ordained Minister, Linda was honored to perform many weddings, funerals, baby dedications and baptisms as well as teaching, preaching and mentoring. She was passionately in love with Jesus, ministering His love to everyone she met in her daily life. She spent years sharing God's love and encouragement in nursing homes and hospitals. Linda was called a "Mother of Many," no matter what their age. She traveled around the U.S. and other nations because of her heart to see God's love spread throughout the world. Linda taught Letter Writing in women's conferences and was involved in Healing Room School of Ministry. She assisted with many Spiritual Hunger Conferences in Spokane. Linda was a great woman of prayer and deeply loved the Word of God. She found excitement studying the Scriptures and finding the nuggets contained in God's Word. Linda Jane loved her family fiercely, and she prayed for each one with great fervor. Linda was an avid competitor who wanted to win at cards, games, and sports, including downhill ski-racing and running track as a teenager in the Spokane Parks Summer Track program. She recently trained and competed in the WunderWoman Triathlon event in Medical Lake and participated in Bloomsday and many other local runs. Linda learned to ski in 1955 and continued for over 50 years, mostly at Mt. Spokane. Linda Jane took great delight in the "wonderment" of God's creation. You could say she went "looking" rather than "walking" She began her love affair of camping at Reeder Bay, Priest Lake, Idaho in the early '50s. Linda and Tom enjoyed many trips skiing, motorcycling, camping, and taking short drives together. Linda joins her father, Ray Brian, in Glory. Linda Jane left a legacy of love including her beloved husband Thomas: her son, Todd Collins (Karen) [Ashley, Brandon]; her daughter, Shyla Gibson (Adam) [Elijah, Issy], her sweet little mama, Marilyn Brian; her mother-in-love, Jean (Fred) Roe; sister, Kathie Milligan (Mike) [Matt/Shelley Milligan: McKenzie, Riley], [Peter/Maureen Milligan: Bram, Hudson], [Anna Michal Milligan], brother Doug Brian (Carol) [Aaron, Brittney], brothers-in-law: Richard (Ann), Les, Wally, Art Collins, and sister-in-law, Colleen (Marvin) Carstens, and many other nieces and nephews.

FINNEY, Kay L. (Snow) - Spokane  
FINNEY, Kay L. (Snow) (Age 87) Our Mom, Kay Finney, completed her life's work on March 21, 2015. Kay was born in Spokane on May 3, 1927 to Robert H. and Elsa L. Snow, the fifth of six children. Kay attended Willard Elementary and graduated from Lewis & Clark High School. She possessed the rare combination of being smart, beautiful and a very hard worker. She also grew into a woman of great faith and lived as a follower of Jesus for her entire life. Kay allowed Christ's love to transform her and she became a deeply joyful person regardless of her circumstances. She was constantly humming a tune (usually a hymn), diligently taking care of her responsibilities and always looking for opportunities to bless the people around her. Sharing her faith in Christ with others was an art form for Kay as she wisely offered the perfect balance of words and actions as a testimony of her faith. Kay met David Finney following his return from WWII, and they married in 1948. She was a supportive and patient wife, working while David finished his college degree, and always helping our Dad to be the best he could be in his work, family, faith and leisure. Kay generously indulged our Dad's love of his Spirit Lake cabin as well as his love of gadgets and all power tools. David and Kay had five children, and being a mom was the best of Kay's life work. She was a very nurturing mother, always ready to sacrifice for her children and constantly giving thoughtful and generous gifts. She loved to plan birthday parties and celebrate holidays with great flair. Her inner joy lifted her through the regular chaos of raising five kids on limited resources. She carefully managed the family budget and somehow saved, economized, used tons of coupons and helped us feel content and grateful. But mainly she prayed a lot. Kay would relentlessly pray for and encourage her family and friends. Through her love and example she fostered a relationship with Christ in each of her children--the most important accomplishment of her life's work. Although she had only gone to college for a year, Kay was determined that all of her children would complete college. So, in the midst of supporting her kids in all the usual activities of music, dance, sports, scouting, church and the like, Kay made sure we worked hard in school, regularly corrected our grammar in conversations and instilled confidence that we were all going to earn a college degree. Five college degrees, a masters, a law degree and a Ph.D. Kay delighted in these achievements. Kay and Dave were faithfully involved in church throughout their 64 year marriage, most recently at Berean Bible Church. Kay enjoyed serving others and had a gift of hospitality that our Dad was sometimes slow to embrace. In Kay's kind and generous nature, she effortlessly took care of those who were hurting, played with children and celebrated with those who were rejoicing. In her early 70s Kay was diagnosed with the beginning of dementia. The significance of that diagnosis was deeply saddening, but it could not overcome our Mom's sweet disposition. As the disease progressed Kay's joy and goodness in Christ came through all the more. No complaints, only kind and encouraging words. And when words could no longer be formed, a sweetness and gentleness that spoke powerfully to her family and caregivers. Kay had an eternal influence on her family, friends and many others at church and in the community. She leaves a beautiful example of a joyful life and continues to be a sweet inspiration to us. Kay was preceded in death by her husband Dave, and is survived by her children, Kate (Charles) Barker, Judi (Tom) Blackmon, Dave (Julie) Finney, Don (Krista) Finney, and Dan Finney; her grandchildren, Jonathan (Rachel Bruns) Barker, Justin Barker, Stephanie Hopkins, Anastasia Finney, Katrina Finney, Trevor Blackmon and Kevin Blackmon; her sisters Frances Uhden and Evelyn Paulsen; and many nieces and nephews. Special thanks to the caring folks at Pleasant Haven AFH for their wonderful care of our Mom the last four years. The family suggests memorial gifts to Moody Radio (KMBI, 5408 S. Freya St., Spokane, WA 99223) which Kay enjoyed for its Christian music and content, or to any other worthy organization which would honor Kay's faithful life. A memorial service to celebrate Kay's life will be held on May 2, 2015 at 2:00 pm at Berean Bible Church, 10910 E. Boone Ave., Spokane Valley, WA.
