Former Soldotna resident Sharon Beth Malotte died Sunday, Dec. 31, 2000, at F.F. Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua, N.Y. She was 40.
A memorial will be held at a later date in Canandaigua.
Miss Malotte was born in Canandaigua on June 3, 1960, and lived there at the time of her death.

She joined the Alaska Air National Guard in 1981, and went on assignment to Hawaii, Turkey and Germany. In 1983, she was Airman of the Year.
She was married to Jay Pokrandt of Anchorage, and later Soldotna. Upon their divorce in 1999, she moved back to Canandaigua.
Her family said, "Some of her organs were donated for transplant, so some good can come out of her death."
