Amanda Livingston: 1949-2012

Amanda Livingston, wife of Gary Livingston, retired chancellor of the Community Colleges of Spokane, died Friday after a four-year battle with cancer. Gary retired two years ago, at age 62, and he told me after an interview that a major reason was to spend every available moment left with his beautiful, talented wife of more than 40 years. He quit at the top of his game. But he certainly made the best decision here. Amanda touched many lives in Spokane, through her work with KSPS television and the Spokane Symphony. 

She was gracious and classy and shared a great love with her husband. Condolences to Gary and their son Nick.
