Ned Robert Nerdin
1950  - 2019

We had another dear friend graduate this morning.  We'll post a more formal obituary when it is available, but Ned Nerdin passed early this morning peacefully after a struggle with pulmonary fibrosis issues.
Ned was a force of nature and will be missed, particularly by this author as we had the opportunity to bring the light of music to many the last number of years.

Condolences to his wife Colleen who graduated from Olympus in 1968.

Steven Brice Kitt 
1949 ~ 2019

 
Father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend. His recovery from major surgery was complicated by the crippling arthritis that afflicted him in his later years. A rare defeat for a man who was usually a winner.
As a youth he was a gifted athlete. He spoke often of the baseball season when, "My team missed, by a single game, the chance to play in the Little League World Series." In high school he was a talented auto mechanic. How we all wish we had his '59 Impala 2-door today (a vehicle that met its demise in a rollover, one of two should-have-been-fatal accidents that Steve walked away from unscathed). After graduating Skyline High in SLC, he attended Weber State College in pursuit of a degree in auto mechanics. He chose a different path, but Ogden was his home for the rest of his life. He was a skilled carpenter. "They always made me build the staircases, because no one else knew how to properly lay them out." Ultimately he earned his own license and became an independent contractor. Steve married ShaMe' Hemsley in 1984. After having two children, Chelsea and Jacob, they were later divorced. He loved the outdoors; hunting, fishing and boating in particular. He was a generous, wonderful friend. Stubborn and insufferable at times, he was one who makes the world an interesting place! We will sorely miss him.

Zina Lou Brown Kincaid 1950 - 2019 
 
Zina passed away February 9, 2019 after a courageous struggle with cancer. She was the first daughter and second child of Barbara Ellen Handy and Billings Brown, born September 2, 1950 in Seattle, Washington. She lived there until she was three yet remembered that home well. The family moved to Springville, Utah where she attended elementary and junior high schools and helped with her five younger siblings. She loved the Springville house and neighborhood as well as the friends she made there. From there the family moved to Mercer Island, Washington where she learned to ski, work for spending money, and to chase boys. 

The next chapter took them to Salt Lake City and Skyline High School. She loved it! She found her voice participating in concert choir, the literary magazine, and clubs and activities. She left quite a reputation for her younger siblings to live up to. A short stint in Annandale, Virginia taught her that an education was crucial to life’s success, and life there took her to her missionary service at the Hill Cumorah Pageant in New York. Back to Utah, Zina graduated from BYU with an English degree and elementary teaching certificate. Also while at BYU, she met the love of her life, Robert V. Kincaid, and they began their eternity together on June 1, 1971. Their oldest two children were born while finishing school, after which their little family moved to Everett, Washington, where they raised eight children: Jesse J. (Julie) Kincaid, Erin K. (Matt) Kincaid, Shane C. (Jessica) Kincaid,Katie K. (Rich) Chavez, Clint R. Kincaid,Curtis G. Kincaid, David R. (Hailey) Kincaid, and Clay J. (Stacie) Kincaid. As a stay-at-home mother, Zina taught her children to work hard: as a family, they delivered newspapers together for 15 years! They watched her trade homemade bread for piano lessons and haircuts. They had happy, productive childhoods thanks to a diligent, faithful, and happy mother! As adults, they produced 24 happy grandchildren.

After raising her children, Zina began her belated teaching career in Everett; she taught gifted fifth-graders for just over 18 years. She was a beloved and creative teacher, touching the lives of many children and their families. She made friends easily wherever she lived and wherever she went, whether at school, Church, or even water aerobics! Her cancer cut her teaching career short, and she and Robert moved to Utah to be near the Huntsman Cancer Institute and to be near grandchildren. They bought a home in Springville and enjoyed downsizing and gardening and spending time with family.Her life was filled with Church service and community involvement. She held fast to her testimony and faith in Jesus Christ, which served to strengthen not only her, but those around her. She leaves this world a better place by having been here. She’s off to greet her parents, two cousins, a nephew, and a granddaughter in her next adventure. We will miss her but know she will continue to be joyful.

A viewing will be held Tuesday, February 12, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00 pm at the Kolob 5th Ward, 2557 Dalton Dr., Springville. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 12:00 pm with a viewing one hour prior at the same church. Interment will be in the Springville Evergreen Cemetery. 

Donations in Zina's memory can be made to the Highly Capable program in Everett public schools where Zina touched the hearts of many students. Send donations to Mill Creek Elementary School, 3400 148th St. SE, Mill Creek, WA 98012.

SHARON VANWAGENEN FAIRBANKS
(On Facebook Wednesday, January 16, 2018 - no obituary as of January 17, 2018)

By Jake Fairbanks (a son)
 
The last 36 hours have been the most difficult of our lives. Yesterday at about 5:00am our sweet mom passed on from this life with her eternal companion and family at her side. We already miss her with all of our hearts but feel a calming reassurance that her spirit is still with us. Words cannot come close to expressing our love for her and we know she has been reunited with her loved ones that have passed before. Her obituary will be coming out tomorrow, but we wanted to make our family and friends aware of her viewing and funeral.
Her viewing will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints at 165 N Center Street in Midway, Utah on Monday January 21st from 5:00 - 7:00pm. Funeral services will start with a viewing on Tuesday, January 22nd from 10:00 - 11:30am and Funeral will begin at 12:00.
As a family, we want to thank all of you for your thoughts and prayers as we mourn the loss of our sweet, wife, mom and grandma. We know we will be with her again one day!

Who is that red rose?
and who are those thorns surrounding her?

Could you ever imagine being 67 years old?
Yet, some of you are already 68 years old.
Social Security and Medicare are now a reality.

YIKES!
