Feb. 14, 1933 — July 2, 2014
Anne Finck, who lived in El Dorado County for over 40 years, died at a local hospital after surviving a long illness. Her family was at her side.
A native of Rock Rapids, Iowa, Anne graduated from nurses training in Sioux Valley, S.D. She later traveled to Chicago, where she became a nurse anesthetist. After moving to Northern California, she practiced anesthesia at Folsom Prison and later at the old Placerville Sanatorium on Coloma Street. At the time, it was the only hospital in Placerville.
In the mid 1970s, Anne joined in a business partnership with her lifelong partner, Jean Tindel, and they formed The Property Line, a real estate management firm that built, owned and managed both residential and commercial real estate interests. She was a multi-faceted woman who enjoyed golfing, camping, traveling and gardening, as well as the arts and music. She was also multi-talented and restored a ’68 Porche Targa to mint condition. She personally built or oversaw the electrical, plumbing, landscaping and construction in her own elegant home. Her great enthusiasm for life and generosity gave her reason to give support to animal rights groups, the UC Davis Veterinary School, Sutter Hospital and the MPS.
Anne was preceded in death by her parents, Erwin and Rosa Finck; as well as her three brothers, Robert, Ronald and Stan. She is survived and will be dearly missed by her partner of 43 years, Jean Tindel of Placerville; her sister, Lonita Zorn of Omaha, Neb.; four nieces; three nephews; and friends too numerous to count.
Any donations should be to personal charities of your choice. Friends will be notified of a memorial celebration of Anne’s remarkable life.
