Lifelong Alaskan Alice Alexandria Anderson, 72, died Feb. 15, 2005, at Providence Alaska Medical Center in Anchorage from natural causes. A public visitation was held with a funeral at Kehl's Forest Lawn Chapel, 11621 Old Seward Highway. The Rev. Peter Chris officiated. A graveside service was at Anchorage Memorial Park. Pallbearers were George Traffin, Tim Murphy, Joe Clark, Paul Ward, Tim Ward and Cagney Point.
Mrs. Anderson was born Dec. 15, 1932, in Unga to Albert and Irene Cushing, the 13th of 16 children. Her family wrote: "She and her husband, Harold, were a close and loving couple throughout their 54 years of marriage, making their home in the fishing communities of Chignik Lagoon and Kodiak before moving to Anchorage in 1989. "Alice was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, friend and homemaker. She was family oriented and welcomed many into her home. She loved to cook, bake, listen to music, pick berries and the subsistence way of life. She read every night and could be found taking long walks on the beach in the day and, of course, being with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren whenever she could. She enjoyed taking long Sunday drives with her family. Forever our 'Omma,' Alice is loved dearly and will be greatly missed. "Alice will be remembered, and her traditions carried on through her surviving family members."
Mrs. Anderson is survived by her husband, Harold Anderson; son, H. Gary Anderson; daughter, Irene Clark; and grandchildren, Michelle Anderson, and Jolene and Joe Clark; daughter, Bernice Ward; and grandchildren, Timothy and Paul Ward; great-grandchildren, Lindsay and Ryan Ward; son, George Anderson; and grandchildren, Andrew and Alysha Anderson; and siblings, Florence Burton, Ester Brainard, Ethel Pettit, Julie Delaney and Jack Cushing.
