Jane Shuey Lindeman
Jane Shuey Lindeman, born September 21, 1940, went to be with the Lord September 7, 2017; husband Don and close friends were by her side. Jane was the only daughter of Charles and Mary Grace Shuey. She was preceded in death by both her parents as well as her only brother, Charles Shuey. She is survived by her husband Don, her daughters Carla (Abe) Lindeman, Amy (Dale) House, Heidi (Randy) Mack and Lisa (David) Jensen, as well as nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
Jane attended Texas Tech University and majored in Home Economics. Her heart’s desire to be a wife, mother, and homemaker began to be fulfilled when she married Don on September 2, 1961, in Dallas, TX. Don and Jane moved and settled in Stevens County in 1969. The main focus of Jane’s time and energy while their children were young was in volunteering at the Christian school their children attended.
God blessed Jane with many creative gifts, and she looked for outlets for her creativity her entire life – including poetry, painting, and various forms of decorating. One of Jane’s passions her whole life was dolls, and she was a member of the Doll Club of Colville for many years.
Another of Jane’s obvious passions was gardening. She loved spending hours in her gardens, and making flower arrangements for both her home and for others. Her patience, perseverance, and joy in making everything she touched beautiful has been a blessing for her family to experience and enjoy with her.
The most important thing to Jane was her relationship with God. At age 15, at a church retreat, she understood and received God’s gift of salvation through the most well-known verse in the Bible, John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” Her trust in Him has been the anchor for her soul ever since.
Jane loved deeply, listened well, and gave from her heart. She was a loving wife, mom, and friend. We will miss her more than words can say, and we can’t wait to see her again!
Jane’s family would like to say a special thanks to Chewelah Evangelical Free Church for their loving companionship, practical care, and steadfast love and prayers these last several years. We would also like to thank Hospice of Spokane for their caregiving to Jane these last several months.
