Cory Finley, Amber Jane Finley

(Continued)

NORMAN —

One of Amber’s favorite things to do was to help cook and bake. Amber would help herself by pushing a chair into the kitchen, right up to the cabinet top, where she would perfectly position herself to participate in the kitchen activities.

She simply loved being included in helping to create something special to eat.

Amber’s beautiful smile and bright eyes will always be remembered by her family. She was an absolute joy to be with and we will miss her very much.

Cory is survived by his loving parents, Richard and Brenda Finley of Norman, Okla. and Connie Wohnoutka of Goodwell, Okla.; one loving brother, Jerry Wohnoutka of Goodwell, Okla.; two loving sisters, Jenel Erin Louise Fatihah and her husband, Raja’ee of Tulsa, Okla., and Samantha Rollins of Tulsa, Okla.; loving paternal grandparents, Lee and Irene Finley of Norman; loving maternal grandparents, John Wohnoutka of Pink, Okla. and Carroll and Frances Walker of Odessa, Texas; and one loving maternal great grandmother, Marie Walker of McCamey, Texas.

Cory was preceded in death by his daughter, Amber Jane Finley, his maternal grandmothers, Oleta Wohnoutka and Lois Walker.
