ETHEL A. FINNEMEN/CARLSON-93, Short time resident of Coeur d'Alene and long- time resident of Liberty Lake, Wa, passed away on Oct. 23, 2011.

Ethel was born on Jan. 18, 1918 in Golva, N. Dakota during a blizzard where the water froze in the sink. She lived through destroyed crops in 1925 and the depression of the 1930's Stock Market crash. Ethel rode horseback six miles just to get to high school. She worked in a bank in Golva after school and then the Soil Conservation Office in Beach, N. Dakota. Once married to Andrew H. Finneman, she settled down as homemaker to raise four children, Andrew C. Finneman, Jr, Sharon Emery, Janice Keener and John Finneman (deceased).

Upon the passing of Andrew, Ethel remarried to Lyle Carlson of Bonners Ferry. She is also survived by her sister Florence Bryant and brother Roland Raisler, her three children and 12 great grandchildren.

Ethel loved her fishing and even more so, singing. Anyone who knew her will remember her desire to sing. Even the song of birds outside would thrill her. She also loved to entertain and cook for anyone that came to the door. Ethel was a volunteer at the Liberty Lake Elementary, SCOPE and the Liberty Lake Beach Combers Garden Club.

Memorial Service will be held November 5, 2011 at St. Joseph's Church, 4521 No. Arden Rd, Otis Orchards, Wa. at 11 AM.
