Thu., Feb. 14, 2013

VAN DINTER, Thelda Mae (Kennedy) Born in West Virginia in 1933 and passed away February 7, 2013 in Spokane.

Born a coal miner’s daughter, she was the seventh of nine children and attended a one room school house during the depression.

Mae loved and kept in touch with her family and roots, even as she traveled as the wife of a USAF husband.

Mae worked at Fairchild AFB as a secretary in aircraft maintenance and at the Airway Heights Correctional Facility.

She had a passion for geneology, gardening, and the color pink.

Mae is survived by three children, Allen, Anita and Mark, seven grandchildren, and one great grandchild.

She made sure each grandchild had a quilt of the type from the hills of West Virginia.

Mae was a small woman with a large heart, a strong faith, and an independent streak.

Throughout her life, she leaned mightily upon the Lord.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, February 16th at 1PM at the Little Rock Church on the corner of Seltice and McGuire on the property of the North Country Chapel.

The address is 2281 W. Seltice Way, Post Falls.
