E QUINCY VALLEY-, ost-Regl-'00ter T.URSOA,, FEBRUARY 21, 2014 I WMMIINIIY g OBITUARIES Linda J. Holgate Linda June Holgate passed away peacefully surrounded with love and family on Feb. 18, 2014. The last five years showed us what a truly silent fighter she was. Linda was bom to Evelyn Shutes and Eugene John Key on April 7, 1942, in Las Vegas, Nev. In 1960, Linda graduated from Ellensburg High School. She was co-editor of the Kla- hiam annual yearbook, which took top honor in the distinc- tive 26th annual yearbook competition. Her senior year she was active with French Club and the Bulldog Club and was senior class treasurer. She was a talented artist; her hands, head and heart went into everything. She was Rodeo Princess in 1959 and 1960. She was accepted to the Seattle Art Institute. She raised two lovely daugh- ters, Ann Marie and Nancy Lynn, and was a Blue Bird and Camp Fire leader, avid seamstress and quilter. She also enjoyed fishing, shop- ping and traveling. Labors of love also included work in her community as a Soap Lake Council person, a lead consul- tant for the Original Notaras Lodge and Don's Restaurant decorating renovations, and Great Canoe Race supporter, to name a few. Then she became Bram- mie, beaming with pride and joy when talking about and to her grandchildren Alyssa and Blake Van Dyke. She met her beloved companion, Lowell Obleness, in May 2000. Then came the great-grandchildren, Braxton James and Stella June Bassett. Absolutely nothing could make her happier than pictures or a story from or about them. She was preceded in death by Lawrence Holgate, her husband; parents Evelyn and Eugene Key; and Aunt Susan, Aunt Henrietta, Aunt Shir- ley, Uncle Smoke and Aunt Ole. She is survived by her beloved companion, Lowell Obleness of Soap Lake; her daughters, Ann Van Dyke and son-in-law Darrell Van Dyke of Quincy, and Nancy Mill- er of Ephrata; grandchildren, Alyssa Bassett (Bryan) and Blake (Ciara Rasmussen) of Quincy; great-grandchildren, Stella, Braxton, Alex and Dal- las Bassett of Quincy; and Jenny Ferris, Kristie Obleness and Cindy McClure. She had too many precious friends to list, but the family does not want to over look their support and friendship. A memorial service took place to celebrate the many lives she touched at 2 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 22, 2014, at United Methodist Church in Ephrata. A light meal to celebrate her life and cherish memories was held immedi- ately following the service.

The Washington Traffic Safety Commission honored two of them for reducing accidents by young drivers. Grant County Sheriff's Office Sgt. Josh Sainsbury and State Patrol trooper Ryan Raymond gave presentations to all Grant County high schools that included viewing of two cars damaged in crashes. Grant County officials attribute a reduction in youth injury ac- cidents to those presentations. The state Department of Health attributed actions by Grant County sheriff's deputy Tyson Voss with saving two children from serious harm on Aug. 27. Voss pulled a motorist over near the George exit on Interstate 90 and made the motorist proper- ly restrain her children in car seats. Within a few minutes, the motorist was involved in an accident and the children did not suffer serious injuries because they were properly restrained.
