Former Alaska resident Dorothy R. (Smith) Halsten, 73, died June 30, 1998, in Sisters, Ore. A memorial service was held at Sisters Community Church.

She was born May 12, 1924, in Portland, Ore., and attended schools there.

They served at Sheep Mountain, Sitka, Northway, Kotzebue and the Anchorage Air Route Traffic Control Cener. After retirement, they moved to Sisters. Mrs. Halsten had been active in the Republican Party, Central Lutheran Church and later Abbott Loop Church.

Larry Hofmann of Tama, Iowa, Christine and Dr. David Ervin of Alexandria, Va., and Deborah Halsten of Anchorage; and one grandchild, David of Tama.
