LINANE, Diane O.  (Age 75)

Diane O'Sharon Linane, beloved sister, wife, mother and grandmother passed away
Tuesday, July 3rd after a long battle against cancer. Diane is survived by her loving
husband of 41 years, Marty Linane. Her brothers Ted (Aimee, deceased 2017) Jim (Jill)
and John (Casee). Her children Kevin, Tami (Casey) Kerri, Mickey, Marty, Monica, and
Tim (Karen), and the lights of her life, her many grandchildren; Kevin's children; Sydney
and Jordan, Tami's children; Casey (Harper), Jasmine (Loic) Kenji, and Mac, Mickey's
children; Josh, Breawna, and Cole, Tim's daughters; Tristen (Zach), Kaitlen, and

Diane was born in Washington DC on July 7, 1943. She was proud to grow and live in
Washington State, graduating from North
Central High School in 1961. Shortly after
graduation she married and had her first four children Kevin, Kerri, Mickey, and Tim. In
1977 a simple call to have her carpets cleaned changed everything. She met the love of
her life Marty and the three more children she always had planned to have Tami, Marty
and Monica. Together Marty and Diane moved to their first home on the corner of Ash
and Longfellow and started what would be 40 years of a wonderful and never dull life.

Along with raising seven kids, Diane and Marty built a business. LPM Supply was
established in 1983. Diane worked tirelessly to learn everything there was to know about
carpet and floor cleaning and fire restoration. She was considered by many to be the
regional expert. She was also the financial wizard behind the business, building a new
building and work shop and setting LPM up as a regional leader in the industry. She was
so grateful for her LPM family and was very sad when she had to retire in 2005 due to
illness. She continued to serve as the chief consultant and was extremely proud when
she and Marty could pass the business to their son Tim.

As much as she loved her business, it was her family that was her heart and soul. She
created magical memories for each of her grandchildren. Halloween parties, lake cabin
sleep overs, and the best Easter egg coloring parties. She was there to cheer for her
children and grandchildren at their every success and the warm shoulder for
any  failure.

Diane never stopped giving and was immensely kind to all. During a dozen years of
cancer treatments, she never complained and always wanted to know how she could
help others.

Our family wishes to thank Cancer Care Northwest South Office for their exceptional
care of Diane.

Friends of Diane are invited to attend her Memorial Service on Saturday, July 21 at 3:00
at the Sunset Chapel at Fairmount Memorial Park, 5200 W. Wellesley, Spokane, WA
