In Memoriam
Barbara Ann Finnegan, CPPM CF
May 13, 1946 – December 6, 2016

We remember and will miss Barbara Finnegan, CPPM CF – a member of Bay Area Chapter of NPMA since 1990. She passed away peacefully on the morning of December 6 after a valiant three-month battle with brain cancer.

Until recently, Ms. Finnegan was the property analyst program representative for Lockheed-Martin Space Systems Company. During her 18-year tenure with Lockheed Martin, she mainly worked on the Military Satellite Programs which included MILSTAR, DSCS, TSAT, OOS (on Orbit Support), AEHF, MOOLS and COOLS satellite programs. Prior to Lockheed, she was employed by Ford Aerospace, later known as Space Systems Loral, where she also held property management positions. On her personal time, Barbara was a longtime board member of the HOA at her condominium complex in San Mateo, California.

Over the years, Barbara was an active and involved member of NPMA. Her varied roles included serving as an elected officer during a number of terms as well as in other volunteer positions for the Bay Area Chapter (BAC). She also served as our National Vice President of Parliamentary Procedures. As a Certified Professional Property Manager, she was involved in activities with our Certification program and the Certification Government Board. She supported and participated in revisions of the NPMA certification manuals and was a certification Proctor. Having obtained recognition as a Consulting Fellow, she participated in various activities with the Council of Fellows. Throughout the years, Barbara frequently attended Regional, National, and Chapter-hosted seminars and workshops where she at times participated as a workshop presenter.

To Barbara, things were very much black and white; when they weren’t, she utilized Dr. Doug Goetz’s famous two words – “it depends” – at which time she would flash a smile and then chuckle. Property Management was a huge part of her life, both professionally and personally. She had many friends and acquaintances throughout the United States and beyond whom she had met through property or NPMA-related activities.

Farewell, Barbara. You will be missed by your work family at Lockheed Martin as well as your NPMA family.
