Kinkade, Lily R. Kinkade

Source:  The Santa Fe [New Mexico] New Mexican; 7 Apr 2007  

        Lily R. Kinkade, 57, of Des Montes, passed away on March 21. She is survived by her husband Richard P. Kinkade; parents-in-law, C.P. and Lucy Kinkade of Sugar Grove, Virginia; sister and brother-inlaw, Chuck and Jane Smith of Green Valley, Arizona; and her many devoted friends and colleagues at Taos Ski Valley.

        A native of the Bronx, she moved to Taos in 1980 after a one-week ski vacation in Taos Ski Valley inspired her to leave her career as a legal secretary in New York City. Lily never regretted the move, for as much as she missed her Sicilian “sopresot” (sopressata) and “mutzarelle” (Mozzarella) from Arthur Avenue's Italian delis, she found something in Taos she loved even more: her husband Dick. She began her career at Taos Ski Valley, Inc. as Ernie Blake's personal secretary and worked for him until his death in 1989. She then worked as the office manager another ten years before moving into the accounting department where she advanced to corporate controller. The passing of such a central member of the Ski Valley family will be felt deeply as both a personal and a professional loss. She had many interests in addition to skiing. She was an avid reader, talented quilter, knitter, beader and an aspiring pianist. One of her finest talents was her ability to teach herself new things. She was always generous with her both knowledge gladly teaching others the new technologies and skills she had mastered and the product of her efforts, as those who own and cherish a Lily Kinkade quilt can attest. She was a devout catlover, and her Maine Coons, Filigree and Sheva, will be among those who miss her most. Lily and Dick received a great deal of emotional and daily living support over the final few months of Lily's life from friends and family far and near, and Dick conveys his heartfelt thanks to one and all.

        A memorial service celebrating Lily will be held at Taos Ski Valley on Saturday, April 7 at 5 pm in the Resort Center. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to a charity of ones choice or to The National Brain Tumor Foundation, 22 Battery Street, Suite 612, San Francisco, CA 94111-5520. www.braintumor.org.
